Okay you got 5 more days 2016, what else do you have in store?

Would you people STOP tempting fate?

I swear, you're worse than Jill Valentine in RE3.

I was so hopeful when reports said her condition was stable. Can we just write this year off? Call mulligan? A few temporal anomalies doesn't seem too much to pay for getting to undo all that's been rotten about this year. I'm beginning to have my doubts about a general collapse of space-time, for that matter.

Oh, and a good friend from high school and my paternal uncle, just for personal kicks in the teeth.

By the way, "Wishful Drinking" is a very funny book and I recommend it if anyone needs cheering up... or a way to say goodbye.

Rest in peace, Ms. Fisher. You made my childhood brighter. I'll miss you.

As a boy growing up, she was the first kick ass female lead I knew of, and grew to love in a she's bad ass kind of way. I will miss her.

Carrie Fisher died at an age that isn't considered old enough to just drop off. Richard Adams certainly was, not to say it isn't sad either. Just a different kind of sad.

2016, you just cant let it go. still has to claim another victim before it leaves. was hoping to see her again in episode 8.

RIP fisher. may the force be with you indeed.

Not her.... I just saw her on live british tv like 4 days ago... now she is gone..

I think Woody put it best

She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.

This. Take a look down the succession of who would be President. Trump is unfortunately the least damaging person there.

I dunno. He may be the least reliably conservative, but he's also the most reliably corrupt and the least reliably sane. It's what his narcissism might lead him to do that worries me. Pence and Ryan won't lob a nuke because their feelings got hurt.

I don't think Trump would lob a nuke. People have to critique him on real points...

I think the fact that the man is easily offended and clearly unstable, as demonstrated by any number of midnight tweet-storms, is a real point. "Ending the world" is a worst case scenario, but it gets mentioned because for once it's on the table. Criticisms of Trump sound like hyperbole, but so does most of what he says and does.

She finished her parts in episode 8 a while back, so she is still in that one.

By the way, just in case this wasn't bad enough, her mother, actress/musician Debbie Reynolds, died today of a stroke.

I just heard about that. No one can get a fucking break this year can they?

I hear you, but to be honest that whole worry about nuclear strikes from Presidents we don't like has been a common insult for decades now. Its kind of lost its weight. Clinton's saber rattling with Russia should be considered just as worrying considering the US and Russia are constantly engaging in proxy wars. The midnight tweets don't bother me with Trump. His cabinet picks scare me way more.

I'm kind of done expecting Presidential Decorum from world leaders. Its a loose fitting mask anyways. I'd rather have some humanity be seen as flawed as it may be, as long as the actions and policies are carried out in a manner that makes sense. People think that voting for President is voting for a King, when in reality your voting for a spokesperson for your country that mainly decides what legislation to approve or veto. Another thing that scares me with Trump is that he's got a Republican House, Congress, and 2-3 Supreme court picks on his side. If Clinton would have won, she'd have been catering to conservative politicians in the same way Bill Clinton did when the Dems lost their power during his first mid-terms.

latest news is that they are burying her and her mother together in a private funeral with a possibility of a public memorial
