Morbid Curiosity

On the second day of the new year I have done nothing of note. Connor went to school this morning. I slept in until 11:00 AM. It is almost 4:00 PM and I am still in my pajamas surfing and blogging. A relaxing and admittedly misspent day. Marilyn was watching reruns of Roseanne this morning and I commented that I hadn't seen the actor that played Mark Healey in anything in a long time. So I went to the trusty Internet Movie Database (IMDB) to see what he was up to and found that he has been dead since 2002. Even though we really liked the show when it was on, and Marilyn still watches it religiously now that it is cancelled, neither of us caught the news that Glenn Quinn died of a drug overdose in 2002. Looking for more info, I stumbled upon a wicked little site, findadeath.com.

Outside of porn, this is just about the most voyeuristic site I can imagine. No good reason to visit beyond pure morbid curiosity. The deceased listed range from A-list celebrities to people who are famous because of circumstances connected with their deaths. There are details of the coroner's reports and people post little tidbits about the deceased they have heard or witnessed. I have been parked on this site perusing the directory entries since about 1:00 PM today. Sad, but true.
