I can't express how sad and angry I am. God or gods above, 2016 has been the worst freaking year.

Farewell, princess...

That's what? 60? 70? prominent people to die in the last week?

The last days are like there is still a quota open for 2016 that needs being fulfilled - if I was an actor or musician I'd be _really_ antsy these last few days of 2016.
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

People say things like that every year, probably because every time it happens, it seems like a particularly bad year.

But this one hits harder than most for me.

Rest in peace, Carrie Fisher. :(

Oh fuck. R.I.P., princess. You were my childhood crush, and I'm still a child. You were the most beautiful girl in the world. I compare the rest to you. I want to... I can't even go on here, I just have to get offline.

<snrk> Me too, I'd heard the quote before, but not the context.

Is it too late to send this year back to the manufacturer for a replacement? There's just too much wrong with it. :(

No, this whole year is fucked. I'm just buying a gun and calling it done.

SpottedKitty, I already tried that. They told me the replacement would ship some time in early January.

there already is a thread in N&P about that, so I am going to lock this one.
