What a shocking story this was. For those who don't know, Bryant was an absolute basketball legend, much like Bjorn Borg in tennis, or Johan Cruyff in soccer.

He died in a helicopter crash in California yesterday (January 26th). It was a private helicopter, and four others died with him, including his 13 year old daughter. He was only 41 and had only retired two or three years ago I believe. 

Truly shocking and unexpected. He was a real winner in every way.

It's unbelievable. Feels surreal. I am heartbroken for the guy's family.

I was shocked when I heard the news. Just a terrible, terrible tragedy. Kobe is a sports legend known for his work ethic and tenacity. Athletes from all sports can take something from how he competed and carried himself.

Live is strange really. One minute you're here and everything is fine and the next minute you're gone.

For me that proofs that you really have to live and enjoy everyday and stop worrying about the future,

I stumbled across the following video thar deals with two occassions whereby it was predicted that Kobe Bryant would be involved in a helicopter crash.


Coincedence?

Wow that is kind of eerie. I assume it's a coincidence, but still. As for the tweet, I believe that is fake. I read that the person used an app to make a fake tweet (it says "Carbon v2.5" at the bottom of the tweet, which I am assuming is the app used to create it).

Yes, there's a lot of fake stuff these days.

But, there is one that is genuine and has predicted the future many times.

And that's The Simpsons. 

In the 1995 episode ‘Lisa’s Wedding’, set in the future, her fiancee has a poster in her room claiming that The Rolling Stones will still be on tour in 2016 on “The Steel Wheelchair Tour.” The same episode, by the way, sees characters communicate via snazzy electronic watches. Wherever might Apple have got their idea from…

Oh yeah it's crazy how many things have showed up in the Simpsons and ended up happening in real life. I remember one example I saw was that they predicted Donald Trump would become President. Definitely a legendary show for numerous reasons.
