No, They Don’t Happen in Threes.

three-stoogesWhenever famous people die it comes up.

“Things happen in threes.”

It is called “triaphilia” – an obsession with three. But, really, they don’t.

Is it David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and Glenn Frey? Or do we include:

  • Clarence Reid, R&B Singer known as “Blowfly”
  • Mic Gillette of Tower of Power
  • Lemmy
  • Dale “Buffin” Griffin
  • Celine Dion’s brother
  • Lawrence Phillips
  • Ashraf Pahlavi?

Death happens every day. 150,000 people die every day. 56 million deaths a year. 3.9 billion within 70 years. In 100 years every person alive today will be dead.

I guess saying that it happens in threes lessens the reality of death.
