Any particular name in mind or that you wish to suggest?

 

I know Davy Jones of The Monkees died on February 29, so I'm going to say it's a musician.

Simple, M'Bow will be hospitalized numerous times for years to come, only to be released within the next few days in spite of advanced age. It will draw enough ire from drol to make M'Bow a forum icon whose eventual death will be seen as earth shattering.

Hah. Although being realistic, Putin could be the biggest death of the next decade. He's 67 now and Gorbachev is a massive outlier for Russian leaders longevity...

I have the theory that over time there are more and more famous people because of new media formats and their expansion, radio ,tv, the internet. Because of this statistically speaking over they years their should be more famous people dying every year as their are more famous people in general

Correct although some years still stand out as big mountains metaphorically speaking in that changed landscape because of the number of iconic or important/high stature names who die.

And I have proofs that if Iraqi Minister of Justice Malik Dohan al-Hassan (1919) and Former Interior Minister of Tunisia Driss Guiga (1924) don't die in 2020, 2021 will see a nuclear apocalypse and the end of the human race.

I too do think 2020 (or maybe 2021) will be poised to be a big year in terms of celebrity deaths.  Although we did lose a lot of celebrities this year, most of them aren't really too high profile, and were more second tier.  

But we've got some big names down the pike that the Grim Reaper is anxious to claim their souls including Jimmy Carter, Prince Phillip, Alex Trebek, Larry King, Kirk Douglas, Olivia Newton-John, Sean Connery, and so forth.  I also think we will have a truly shocking death of a young celebrity, and not an "up and comer" type, but an A-lister celebrity who will likely die by either suicide or drug overdose (think Robin Williams or Philip Seymour Hoffman level).  I predict that we will see the death of one (or maybe even more) of the following in 2020 or 2021: Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears (she has been deteriorating mentally lately and sadly I think she could end up taking her own life or suffer a suicide by cop similar to Vanessa Marquez), Amanda Bynes, Demi Lovato (she will relapse and not survive this time around, she won't cheat death twice), Pete Davidson, Tekashi69, Lil' Wayne (or another high profile hip hop artist), and one or two big name celebrities connected to Jeffrey Epstein.  

I also await Bill Cosby to croak.  He will die in disgrace like Joe Paterno.  

 

What makes you think that the truly shocking death of a young celebrity will happen? What sort of person are you thinking of?

 

You've already mentioned Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, was that what you were getting at?

Yeah, I mentioned those two as the possible shocking young deaths.  As grim as this may sound, I've always predicted Britney Spears will die young.   Either a suicide by cop ala Vanessa Marquez, or something along the lines of Judy Garland and Whitney Houston.

You thinking of an American, world famous celebrity though?

 

We've already had in the UK the deaths of Love Island contestants in recent years. Amy Winehouse was another one

Yeah but what Toast is saying is most of those big names such as Carrie Fisher Victoria Wood Prince David Bowie Alan Rickman Victoria Wood Debbie Reynolds Gene Wilder Terry Wogan Paul Daniels Denise Robertson Ronnie Corbett and George Michael were not names we expected to go when they did.I mean most of these names were not seriously on anyone's radar when they died.

Daniels and Robertson both gave us a few weeks warning of their demise.
