Arthur C. Clarke dead: Birds of a feather die together
This following Heath Ledger’s death. This I find really strange, because famous people from the same groups usually die at roughly the same time – usually in pairs. Remember when Princess Diana died? That was roughly the same time as Mother Teresa’s death.
This week, two famous geek gods passed: the creator of D&D Gary Gygax (such a cool name) and science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. The one saddest thing about Clarke’s death, I find, is that he’s probably the last science fiction writer of such calibre. I can’t think of one who has that much credit to his name who’s still alive. Who’s going to give us such classics as Space Odyssey?
Which kind of makes me wonder: Now that Castro’s dying, will N.Korea’s Kim Jong Sick – I mean Kim Jong Il – go soon?
Seaquest DSV, by the way, was a really cool show from the 90’s. Watch the trailer below:
Can you think of any other famous people of similar background/claim to fame etc who have died roughly the same time? Let us know.
Pass it on. Let’s build some support
