    Everybody gets one death, its our fate.

    Rik Mayall has a celebrity death

    While
    Inna Vladimirovna Kukurudza (July 18th 1966 – June 2nd 2014)
    was killed in an atrocity that the powers that be want to keep hidden from us peasants as they go about their machinations.

    If we are lucky we will die in our own beds surrounded by those who love us

    I’ll say no more as the storm clouds gather
