    BUT WAIT !!!!!! If you die in the next 15 minutes, we will double your order, just pay additional S&H.

    50 used to seem pretty old to me. But, now that I am 41, 50 really seems way too young to die.

    I liked Billy. I am sorry to see him go.

    I didn't care about Jackson...I mean, he was a freaking pedophile and in addition a really bad performer. Any news related to someone like that I immediately ignore.

    But Billy Mays? Very sad. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. He seemed like a good enough guy.

    I will mourn his passing more than MJ's. He was not as talented as MJ, but he was also never indicted for child molestation either.

    Who's next, Billy started the next round of "they come in three's".

    Apparently he had a rough landing on an airline, and wacked his head hard, shrugged it off. Could have caused a subdural hemorrhage, though the media isn't saying yet.

    Anyway, too bad, 50 years old.
    Found this on wikipedia:

    On June 27, Mays had been aboard US Airways Flight 1241, which landed roughly when one of its front tires was blown out. The heavy impact of the landing caused objects from the overhead storage compartments to fall and strike some passengers. Mays told WTVT-TV, a local Tampa Fox news station, that some of the objects "hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." His wife noted that he felt unwell when he went to bed that night. The next morning, he was pronounced dead at 7:45 am by a local fire rescue crew.

    Yeah, but that group ended with MJ (Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Micheal Jackson). Billy just started the whole routine over again.

    I hope they don't play a montage of his commercials as a tribute. I'll have to unplug the tv for a few days.

    I never could stand to listen to that guy. He just irked me for some reason.

    I haven't heard one person yet say they liked that style of salesmanship. I wonder who bought his stuff?
