Oosh thats bad but he'd see the humor. I'm sure worse is to come
Many deaths everyday but how many births? Circle of life and all that. He was really good though, certainly added something extra to Austin Powers.

Check the first link I provided for Births in 2011 to compare to the Death Rate statistics for the same year I transposed into the comment.

Also, your favourite web search engine will help.

For some people life's just too short
There are currently around 2.6 births for each death in the world today, this is a live population clock.

It took a little something to change our combined consciousness.

That said, Mr Troyer was recently treated for depression & suicidal thoughts, plus suspected alcohol poisoning:

(That is just a calculation using a fixed value for a global birth/death ratio & the current system date/time of the device showing the web page)

Here is a similar idea with different statistics:

[ worldometers.info ]

If you compare the figures shown on both sites side-by-side you will see they differ.

Pity the birth rate is higher.

The world is massively overpopulated.

RIP fella.

His family have pretty much said so.
“Depression and suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.”

As to the birth rate it is obviously to high(and the death rate for that matter )
the good news is is the global birth rate is coming down.

I seen this last night and it brings back memories of Robin Williams great funny actor who entertained us yet deep inside both these people had demons. Such a shame the entertainments industry don't do more to help.

Bloomin' new Code of Conduct!

There will be statistical anomalies through personal illness, injury, trauma, or other inflicted harm & detriment but, yes, your childhood heroes & those that influenced your informative years will all, on average, succumb to the inevitable around a similar period.

It is, sadly, just another aspect of life & one that we all have to face in the end.

As the sayings (paraphrased many times) go...

"Live every day as if it's going to be your last, & one day, you'll be right", and
"If you knew today was your last day, would you be happy with what you’re doing?"


Mr Troyer didn't get a good start in life, suffered throughout it, & sounded like he was battling demons on a regular basis.
He made the most of what he had & used what some may see as weakness, as his strength.

Perhaps we can all take something away from his passing.
You can do well, or do good, but you don't necessarily have to do both.
