Today, 150,000 people died of natural causes

                        because starvation is natural when there isn't enough food to eat
                        and the immune system's natural response to abnormalities is to beat
                                    whatever it is to death, despite damage to the self
                        and fire was discovered, not invented
                        and jealousy is a natural response to wealth.
