This sort of thing must happen a lot in the afterlife. Assuming there's an afterlife that everyone goes to, can you imagine how many people would want to meet Plato, or Cleopatra, or Shakespeare, or da Vinci, or Napoleon, or Washington, or Einstein, or Elvis? These poor folks must never get a moment's rest over there.

And if by some weird turn of reality, fictional people showed up there too...


2021-08-15 Rerun commentary: I wonder how many "biggest fans" famous people have. I wonder who has the most "biggest fans". I wonder what the distribution curve of number of "biggest fans" looks like.

What makes a fan "big"? How do you quantify and compare "bigness" of fans? Is it possible for two fans to be equally "big"? Does "bigness" of fans vary over time, or is it an absolute? Is "bigness" of fans increasing over historical time? Do people set new "bigness" records in fandom? Or was there some historical fan so "big" that nobody will ever "outbig" them?
