I agree I loved his characters

Oh no.  He was so great as an actor.  Course he lived hard so he kind of knew that he was not going to be a centagenarian.

The Larry Sanders Show.

And of course, the one he will always be remembered for in my heart...The Beastmaster! That came out when I was in college. We would watch it over and over and over again. Comedy gold.

That's where I remember him from.  It was said in its early days, that HBO stood for "Hey, Beastmaster is On", since it was on all the time.

Ross Perot, Lee Iacocca, Rip Torn. Three in a row all of whom I had thought were long dead.

They were.  This is just another piece of evidence in a long line of proof that the LHC did and does create false histories known as the Mandella effect.

Mitchell Feigenbaum, pioneer of chaos theory died on June 30th.

Check out the period-doubling bifurcations of the logistic map and pour one out for him today.

They always die in threes?

When celebrities get very old and you don't hear anything from them for a length of time, one just comes to assume they died. I wouldn't be surprised to find out many people (most?) think Sean Connery and Gene Hackman are dead.

Kirk Douglas and  Olivia de Havilland are seemingly immortal.

Some of them just retire to their tax shelters instead of trying to remain in the public sphere.
