Unbelievable......the mother of Carrie Fisher......'Mary Frances "Debbie" Reynolds' - 84 years old - dies two days after the death of her daughter......

An earlier snap of Debbie, then again a few years ago with her daughter...[Debbie & Carrie]

The list reads like ......'whos who'

However it is a little concerning :o......

So if the 2016 worlds populations births [@ or to 0700 AM on 31/12/2016] was 142,250,957, and the deaths were 59,989,594...this means for every single death, ~~2.3 replacement humans were born

Accordingly, if the RIP 2016 listing from Martin.....http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38418802 ........were eg., if 1000 people of note ,have gone, have we replaced an equivalent number in the same 2.3% increase...ie., have 2300 replacement people of note evolved or been recognised?

I suspect not.....Derek

PS......the computer generated math on the attached page is questionable

Too morbid.... and I'm not feeling too lucky this year!  ;D

 But a new topic 'Died in 2017' it's inevitable, I guess......
