        Janis was really only 27? for some reason I thought she was older when she died.
        So many celebrities died young...River Phoenix, Heather O'Rourke, Judith Barsi, Jonathan Brandis, etc.

                  The dude from that one show was dead before his prime. We didn't even get to know his name, he died so far before his prime.

                  I mock the dead.

                                that's as much as I could count in celeb deaths before the age of 50.

                                    Was going to mention him but was not sure if he was under 50 or not and was to lazy to look it up. So I thought F it. I'll leave him out of my list.
