13. I don't expect that many people to care either but they said he was young

thought it was a bit newsworthy.

10. 45,000 People Dying a Month in Congo (AP)
For a bit of perspective.


http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5ivvweOI6oivj84II4oRa...

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) Some 45,000 people die each month in Congo as the world's deadliest humanitarian crisis has failed to improve despite five years of relative peace in the Central African nation, according to a report released Tuesday.

The study found that life is still alarmingly precarious for Congolese despite the end of a 1998-2002 conflict that pulled in armies from half a dozen surrounding countries, and the country's first free and fair elections in more than four decades in 2006.

"When war ended in Congo there was the same level of dysfunction without the violence," said Les Roberts, a Columbia University professor who helped conduct the first surveys in Congo with the aid group International Rescue Committee.

Congo's monthly death rate of 2.2 deaths for each 1,000 people essentially unchanged from the last survey in 2004 is nearly 60 percent higher than the average for sub-Saharan Africa, according to the study by IRC and Australia's Burnet Institute, which researches epidemiological disease.

25. One day our sun will die and our solar system will collapse.
No one will know any of this ever happened.

For a little more perspective.

11. 'drug overdose' - thanks for the info.
Seriously.

Depression or accidental... misdiagnosis by a doctor?

Anyone who says you're wasting your time - tell them to say something else.

31. You've answered your own question before you asked it, my friend.
I give credit where it's due:
Freud was pretty messed up in a lot of ways, but he certainly
had some damn good "basic insights" into how people get messed up.

27. And another of your posts gets moved to the Lounge...

36. Gosh, that's so comprehensive.
I can just imagine your announcement on the death of the Dalai Lama:

"Some religious guy is dead. Breaking on msnbc".
