The death of stars
9 People Who Died Laughing. Fatal hilarity is death as a result of laughter. The phrase was first recorded in 1596. Death is usually brought about by asphyxiation from which the thoracic diaphragm can't expand or contract fully thus causing the inability to breathe correctly or heart failure/heart attack/cardiac arrest due to constant straining on the heart, ultimately preventing blood flow

I laughed at the inappropriate funeral songs, but I think one could argue that they didn't need to count Crazy Frog - it's never appropriate.
I didn't laugh *too* hard though...don't want an accident.

it's almost poetic to see how some picture of dying stars on the page (third pic, the eagle nebula) are actually news stars emerging from the dust of formerly dead stars ...
many thanks for the post my friend, hope it's not one of the last ones

I could see someone playing "White and Nerdy" at a funeral.
