(Edited to reflect 49 innocents, not including the monster that did it.)
So, not the way I wanted to open this thread (though I never like to think about death anyway). RIP to the 49 killed this morning in Orlando.

Michu Meszaros, actor who played ‘ALF,’ dead at 76

Quote :

Michu Meszaros, the entertainer who portrayed "ALF" in the popular 1980s sitcom, has died, TMZ reports.

He was 76.

Meszaros was reportedly taken to a Los Angeles hospital last week after his longtime manager Dennis Varga discovered him unresponsive in his bathroom. He spent the past week in a coma, according to the gossip site.

The Hungary native had reportedly been battling health problems since suffering a stroke eight years ago.

The actor landed a number of significant roles in his career, including a pair of commercials with late pop king Michael Jackson. He also made a cameo in the 1988 comedy "Big Top Pee-wee."

But his biggest claim to fame was his role in "ALF," a series centering on a wisecracking alien who crash lands on Earth and moves in with the suburban Tanner family.

The character of ALF — which stands for Alien Life Form — was typically a puppet, but Meszaros wore the fuzzy brown costume when they needed action shots. Puppeteer Paul Fusco, meanwhile, provided the voice for the character.

The 2-foot-9 Meszaros, who performed in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus early on in his career, billed himself as the "world's shortest man" in 1990 after becoming an American citizen, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Holy sh*t, TMZ is saying Anton Yelchin has died in a freak accident.

Apparently my phone won't let me copy/paste the link for some reason.

Yelchin's death makes him the most recent member of the 27 Club along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain. Among many others.

His vehicle was in need of a recall for an issue with the electronics...could have been avoided. Sad

Seriously, has anyone done any studies relating to the rate of well known Passings? Like if this year really is as huge as it feels or if it's just been some of the biggest names in a while causing us to notice so much.

The mutual relationship between human and canine goes back thousands and thousands of years and is one of the most natural, purest bonds humans can have. We have physically evolved along one another, side by side, for millenniums. The common theory is that ancient tribal humans took wolves and bred them for hunting. They helped us find food, and in return we gave them safety and a share of the meat.

My family is not a hunter-gatherer tribe, I was not a hunter, and he was not a wolf, but the bond he shared with our family was just as strong. He was an escape artist when he young, and a little bit of grouch when he got older. He wasn’t the cutest thing to ever exist and he wasn’t a fancy purebred. He was a scruffy little mutt. And he was our dog. And we were his humans.

I was just five years old and begging my parents to get me a dog for Christmas, even though we already had several pets, when he showed up at our grandparent’s door just before the holiday. He’s been with us for fifteen years since then, and during that time he’s seen other dogs come and go, been through three houses, and may or may not have impregnated neighbor dogs on a few occasion, He’s a lot of lollipops to eat and squeaky toys to attack. He bit me a couple times.. I believe, for a dog, that his years were good. And the mere fact that his years were good made them good for us. There was love and compassion between him and the family, and that is what any dog or human could ask for.

RIP Scrappy. He will be missed.

If it's any consolation, at least you have a father to mourn about. My own dad was/still is never much of a real father except for some years here and there.
