Here at Jammy Toast, when looking back at 2016 there is one thing we will remember it for – death. It’s been held up as a particularly gloomy year for celebrity deaths. But has the Grim Reaper really claimed the souls of more notable people than usual in 2016? David Bowie, Prince, Harper Lee, Alan Rickman, Nancy Reagan, Muhammad Ali, Sir George Martin, Victoria Wood, Leonard Cohen… For their admirers, 2016 has been a sad year. So we thought we would look back and try and work out if there was anything unusual about the number of well-known people dying, as many on social media had been claiming.
One thing which we humans have to worry about and teddy bears don’t is just what happens to us when we die. For years I have heard stories of near-death experiences where people see bright lights and just as they are about to enter into the light they are brought back to life. Too many people say the same thing about near-death experiences for it to be something which someone has made up or dreamt. So just what does happen when we die, does anybody know?
