  • Billy Mays died this morning

    Billy Mays passed at 0745 Sunday morning. He was found unresponsive by his wife and pronounced dead by fire rescue pesonnel.

    I found him annoying but I enjoyed his commercials and actually found him believable about the products he pitched.

    Apparently he had been in a rough landing of an airplane on Saturday and been struck in the head by falling objects on the plane. When he went to bed that night he complained of not feeling well. Whether or not this is related or not is unknown at this time.

    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    He may have been annoying but the show he was on, Pitchmen" was a great insight into how they decided what products to hawk.

    It was really funny to see some of the stuff they turned down.

    RIP Billy.

          I almost fell out of bed when I saw it on the news this morning. Billy Mays has the only beard that could take on Chuck Norris' beard. RIP Billy

                          Maybe he had nose bleeds from all the yelling, and he was using the cocaine to constrict the arteries in his nose?
