    He's one reason I don't have a television actually... I can recall dozing off watching the tube in the middle of the night and his presentation would start up and wake me up.. I'd have dreams that he was my alarm clock sometimes...

    RIP Billy Mays, a piece of Americana, annoying maybe, but really, you will be missed...
  2. how stupid do you have to be to put that stuff in your body?
  3. May be he was trying to be the next GWB.
  4. A mighty shocking autopsy report concludes cocaine contributed to the sudden death of pitchman Billy Mays back in June.
    The report, which was released today, lists "cocaine use" as a contributing cause of death -- along with hypertensive and arteriosclerotic heart disease.

    A Hillsborough County press release says "from the presence of metabolites of cocaine and the absence of cocaine itself, it was concluded that Mr. Mays used cocaine in the few days prior to his death but not immediately prior to death."

    Mays died in his sleep on June 28 at his home in Florida.

    UPDATE: Official documents show the following drugs were in Mays' system -- hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (painkiller), alprazolam (Xanax), nordiazepam (Valium), benzoylecgonine (byproduct of cocaine) and temazepam (anti-anxiety). Ethanol -- alcohol -- was also in Mays' system.

  6. Obama does a better job in his book when he talks about his heavy abuse of cocaine.

    Bush rumors are all heresay.
  7. I quit doing a lot of coke a long time ago thank god. I was in my early 20's when I was doing a bunch and I had noticed some signs of what could have been some pretty nasty health problems, I can't imagine being 50 still knocking it down.
  8. I find it hard to believe that you read books let alone Obama's book.:D
