Jimmy Buffett's Power of Suggestion, and Death Took a Break in 1752, I Have the Proof!

It's Labor Day Weekend, and well, another example of the Power of Suggestion. 

I have written about this before, how people have said things lightly which ended up being premonitions of their deaths.  Sports players, airplane pilots, famous writers, etc., have all done it publicly.  In college I got accepted in a Nondisciplinary Graduate program at the University of Texas, my study was titled: The Power of Suggestion In Song.  I wrote about how the popular Southern Rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd's, airplane crashed killing the lead singer shortly after the release of an album with them burning in flames on the cover, and one of the songs was titled: "The Smell of Death."  The band was on their way to the opening show in Dallas when their plane went down.  The album cover was changed to not show the men burning in flames. 

Flames Cover Removed after Death.
A similar thing happened to John Lennon in 1980.  He had just released an album with a song called, "I Had to Let it Go."  In the song he said he was, "No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go...." The song became a rock-station hit while they were burying John. 

And now, for this Labor Day Weekend, I read this morning that Jimmy Buffett, the Margaritaville singer with a religious following of Parrot Heads, died just in time for his Labor Day Weekend.  I didn't think much of it until I found myself singing one of his songs while I was making my breakfast tea:

Headin' out to San FranciscoFor the Labor Day weekend showI got my Hush Puppies onI guess I never was meant for glitter rock 'n' rollAnd honey, I didn't know that I'd be missin' you so
The song is titled: Come Monday.  And yes, a coinkydink at the very least, but he has, "Headed out for the Labor Day Weekend," as the song says, and of course, he now knows that he is "...missin'" her so.  Now if that's not Esoteric I don't know what is?
The other Esoteric thing I want to mention today is that on September 2nd of 1752, England and its American colonies switched to the Julian calendar, dropping the Gregorian calendar.  To do this, eleven days disappeared and so they went from September 2nd of 1752 to September 14th, and simply skipped the eleven days in-between.  So, in all reality, Death took a vacation in England and the American colonies from September 3rd to September 13th of 1752.  That's right, no one died in England or its colonies between September 3rd and the 13th of 1752.  Google it!
