Of Death and Fame

If you happen to look at my reading list in the sidebar of this blog, you might have noticed that I've been reading a book by David Crowder called Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven, but Nobody Wants to Die: Or the Eschatology of Bluegrass.  It has been an interesting read, for sure.  Crowder_1 David and his co-writer (and fellow band member) Mike Hogan have managed to piece together a collection of random thoughts and intricate research regarding death, the soul and the life hereafter.

The book has definitely had me thinking about death a lot, lately; in ways that I haven't ever really pondered it much.  Just for fun, I made a list of the first 10 famous dead people that came into my mind and I did a Google search of each.

Take a Quiz
  Here's the list of people that I searched.  Without googling them yourself, rank them in the order that you think they would come from most hits returned to least hits.  I'll post the results tomorrow. In the order that they came to my mind....

  • Elvis
  • Apostle Paul
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Mother Theresa
  • Princess Diana
  • Tupac Shakur
