I had my 25 year HS reunion last year and realized all 69 (nice) of our class is still alive. I'm scared for me.

I had a bigger class (370) but at least 5 have died from illness (that I know of).

Also, my college roommate and friend for 25+ years died last year and no one from his town or his family will tell me exactly what happened, which is frustrating and sad. Whatever they're hiding probably isn't as bad as I'm imagining, so they aren't doing him (or me) any favors

Our class was around 260 and we've had at least 6 people die that I know of. The sad part is half of them were suicides. One of my best friend's younger brother killed himself about 10 years ago after a terrible accident that left him unable to work. Our country and culture are sick.

Let me know when they become the party of:

Family values
Small government
Free trade
World leadership

They've abandoned everything it used to mean to be republican.

I graduated in 04 and have 4-5 classmates who’ve died at least and another who’s widowed.

Just turned 42 last week. Time definitely is faster now than it was when I was younger.

Crazy though, I've lost a ton of classmates. My graduating class was 188, after starting with 464 as a freshman. Lot of drug dealers, dropouts, etc.

Anyway, my class has lost people from murder, OD, skiing accidents, motorcycle accidents, cancer, rare disease, everything. I'm pretty sure I have double digit Facebook friends who have died since I started on FB 10 years ago.

25 years next year, and I don't even know how many of that 188 are left.

I was HK King. The Queen was raped and murdered in her bed with her fiancé a few years after we graduated.


How many NSBBers have died? At least Fred

I have 125 ppl in my class and it's our 15 year reunion this year. Nobody in my class or their spouse have passed away yet. Pretty lucky in that regard, but I know of at least 7 of my classmates have already lost a child due to stillborn, choked on something, fell from their crib, disease, etc. I hope I don't hear another one when we have our reunion in a month.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I'm 33 years old.

I'm somehow dealing with time seeming to both speed up and slow down abruptly. Though that probably has a lot to do with being a new father. Months feel like they go by in an instant, but in the evenings I'll be talking to my wife about something that I think happened 2-3 days ago and she'll say "no, that was this morning."

Sleep deprivation does some crazy horsefeathers.
