If an actor/actress or athlete dies from an accident at something so expensive that no normal person can afford it, that's not so much tragic as it is KARMIC.

If you're posting here, chances are you are incredibly wealthy compared to a person with median income or purchasing power parity for the whole of humanity. Don't say that wealth devalues a life without first considering how wealthy you really are.

I'm annoyed by how much attention celebrities get, but that's the fault of consumers, not the celebrities themselves. Dying in an accident isn't karmic, it's a bad turn for them the same way it is for anyone else, yourself included.
