I just read all 32 pages of this thread.
*pats self on back*
I must say it was quite a late night coffee trip. I find there is some kind of phenomenon that I can relate to here, it's like these vague memories
that seem out of place with what I know. It's almost like I have to push through a fog and then these peoples deaths seem fairly obvious and
something doesn't add up.
I know Gary Coleman is alive today, I have been following him from his escapades as a security guard through to his recent scandal. I also have a

the modern phenomenon of celebrity and mass media communication has for once allowed a group of people to witness a report of someone dying and then
come together to share that consensus via the internet. Either that or the zombie apocalypse has already started. Gary Coleman is scary enough alive,
he would make a terrifying zombie.
Yeah check out that mug shot, definitely zombie -www.thesun.co.uk...
This is quite a mystery, I'm thoroughly enjoying this one.
