George Burns? He live to be 100 !! Bob Hope ?

You have a strange vision about dying too young. But...I kind of like that.

#31 2 years ago

Well, if you brought back a bunch of celebrities that died due to some sort of addiction, wouldn't they just be likely to do it again in a short time? That seems like a waste. Or would bringing them back include some type of forced rehab?

Maybe a different approach:
Bring back 5 of history's biggest assholes that killed themselves to avoid punishment (or otherwise avoided punishment) so that they could be fittingly/publicly punished. I could get behind that
