The three Js of music - Jim (Morrison), Jimi (Hendrix) and Janis (Joplin, not John Lennon) died when they were around 27. Back in college, 27 seemed like a good age to die. I am 27 today, and my sweet little Bengal Danio died this morning. He was bad last night, and it was heart breaking to watch him struggle. I still don't mind dying at any age, but its so bad to watch your pet die on your birthday.
