People who go on about 2016 as if it's a real curse or something.

Some bloke was outside George Michaels house claimed that as he grew up without a father he considered George Michael as a father figure

Really?

The Dianafication of British society is a truly depressing thing to behold. Every famous death is followed by an "outpouring of grief", usually fronted by some egos on Facebook who take the opportunity to tell all 800 of their 'friends' some banal anecdote from their difficult times in life and how the dead celebrity kept them going. Then the media starts telling you that you're in mourning whether you like it or not: "world mourns pop superstar" articles, trigger happy with the collective "we", herd the idiots in and start milking as much as they can before the corpse gets too cold. The sheer weight of articles, news pieces, vox pops with blubbing weirdos holding flowers outside some vaguely relevant location eventually starts convincing the average Joe Armchair that he's devastated, and is part of a collective nationwide or even global mourning. Then it moves to the street. I was even stopped in town at total random by some moist old creature who apparently needed "time to adjust" after Bowie died. Who are you? Why are you bringing this up in public? Had you even listened to Bowie since 1982? Get a hold of yourself.

The sad truth is that next year will probably be worse. More and more people are becoming famous each year, of course we're going to witness more deaths.

Nightmare! You can call British Gas out for an emergency fix. They give you a price before you commit. Cost me £79 when a valve on mine went

Re celebrity deaths. Some of wailing when a very old celebrity or 50/60s but having done a load of drugs/booze is silly. It's expected at that age, they had a good innings.

Attenborough is going to be bad when it happens (celebrate his life its been long and fruitful). Honestly I hope I'm out of the country when the Queen dies, it'll be sickening

You look at money? <scratch>

I assume money will be phased out too, rather than a one day switchover.

Don't worry, he said very old celebrities or else 50/60 year old celebrities who have done Iggy levels of blow. You may be an old bugger, but there's still life to be had <cheers>.

This, absolutely. I may be a miserable bastard but I get really annoyed at outpourings of grief towards total strangers just because they are celebrities. Sure acknowledge the sadness of the event and spare a thought for their actual loved ones and then get on with life as normal. Anything beyond that is attention seeking pure and simple.
