Celebrity Deaths

The past 2 weeks have seen the deaths of Corey Haim, Merlin Olsen, and, just yesterday, Peter Graves.

Many people have pointed out the tendency of celebrity deaths happening in threes--three not necessarily all well-known, but usually notable, celebrities all dying within a two week period. If there is any doubt that this theory exists, simply search "celebrity deaths in threes". You'll get tens of thousands of results.

Many have devoted much effort to explaining this theory, proving or disproving it, or even gambling on it.

Many theories to explain it have been advanced, but my own personal one is this, without any research or whatnot:

Celebrities simply cannot subconsciously allow anyone to hog the spotlight alone, even if they do it by dying.

Meh. Whatever.
