I think his contract with the devil must've run out or something.

50 is WAY too early to die of cardiac arrest, and there were no apparent reasons for it.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

It's a strange day when Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson are both in the news for the same reason.

MJ didn't die from a heart attack, it was a "minor" stroke.

A gygaxian dungeon is like the world's most messed up game show.

Behind door number one: INSTANT DEATH!
Behind door number 2: A magic crown!
Behind door number 3: 4d6 giant bees, and THREE HUNDRED POUNDS OF HONEY!
They don't/haven't, was the point. 3.5 is as dead as people not liking nice tits.

Sometimes, their tits (3.5) get enhancements (houserules), but that doesn't mean people don't like nice tits.

Though sometimes, the surgeon (DM) botches them pretty bad...

Why exactly is that? I am convinced that with his personality hardly anything would've changed even if he had become a celebrity 20 years later.

As for MJ himself... I'm just waiting. After all, now that he's dead...

His death was clearly a cosmic conspiracy, I mean come on, Farrah died not too long before he did. It's pretty obvious what happened, right?

Quote
God: "Welcome to heaven, you get one wish, Farrah, what will it be?"
Farrah: "I wish for all the children still living on Earth to be safe."
God: "Done."
*Michael Jackson dies*

It seems so obvious now...

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

It was a joke, you were supposed to lol. Someone's dead doesn't make him immune to joking.

The kid was working in show business since he was what, 6 years old?  He never had a 'normal' childhood, and his behavior since then (Neverland Ranch, surrounding himself with kids, etc) certainly seems like he was trying to find that childhood.

As for his megalomania, he was a star from his early childhood.  He was hailed as the 'king of pop', and everyone wanted to be him.  He never had a chance to learn that the world didn't really revolve around him.  Yes, stardom does that to a lot of people, but think about what it does to someone who never knows anything else?
