Well he did always seem to have a lot of energy all the time.

Really took me by surprise, thoughts?

Why couldn't it have been the ShamWow! guy ? On a relative scale, way more obnoxious. I never did hear anything about Billy punching out a prostitute in his hotel room.

I always thought he took ski trips without going to the mountains!

She did try and bite off his tongue before he hit her. I can't blame the guy for that one.

He was always pretty jumpy. Though I didn't expect it either.

Now we know the secret ingredients in Oxyclean.

And if you call right now I'll double that offer.

Thats interesting. His son posted something on twitter that they are going to have an independent examination or something like that. I hear the family is pretty ticked off that they released the statement concerning the cocaine.

I do think a further and independent exam of the evidence should be done. There could have been errors in the lab or wrong samples. It would be sad if recent use of cocaine was a contributor to his death, but not everybody is perfect and he certantly had the income to buy cocaine.

I always knew there was now way in hell anyone could be THAT EXCITED, about Mighty Putty, without a little extra help from an outside source.  Big grin

Still a shame that he died though.  Smile

I kind of sympathize. I mean there is no court case or car crash or anything else. The guy died and this sort of info should be confidential. Smears the guy now.

I wouldn't mind. I'm sure the pay is really good, but I don't know how i'd look in one of those blue button-up tucked in shirts, and I don't think I can speak that fast without making a mistake or biting my tongue.
