Sorry for the ****ty source, but go look throughout the rest of the interwebz. Billy Mays is dead. This thread is for mourning the loss of a great man, and a great Pitchman.

I thought this was a joke, what the hell?

What is going on?

Between David Carradine, Billy Mays, Ed McMahon, Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, it’s a bad time to be a celebrity.

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

all this celebrity mourning is very special.

pay attention to stuff that matters, not celebrities.

every person is of value but the ludicrous amount of attention society gives to celebs is concerning.

i’m not saying ‘don’t mourn losing a human life, especially one that brought joy to people’ but more like ‘thousands of people including children pbum every day, remember that when you go to the effort of posting HURP THE MAN ON THE TV BOX BE DED WHAT A LOSS TO THE WORLD on your facebooks’

When it comes to tabloids and non-tabloid articles about their likes and dislikes, I agree with you.

When it comes to mourning their deaths, though — while hundreds of thousands of people die daily, almost none of them have a direct impact on any given individual’s life. Celebrities, though, have an impact on thousands or even millions of people’s lives, because the celebrities brought something to those people, whether they knew them personally or not.

The pitchman dies, meaning I’ll never again be able to enjoy watching him advertise something. The musician dies, meaning I’ll never get to enjoy new music that he might have produced. The actress dies, meaning I’ll never be able to watch her act in another movie. These are things which impact me directly (to various degrees).

But 3000 people dying in a country I’m never going to visit? While that’s much more horrible from a humanitarian point of view, the direct impact on my life is nil.

Hence, mourning celebrities, but not unknowns, despite the numbers.

That’s something i was neglecting to mention because it counters my argument entirely.

However, the recordings of the musician and performer will last forever so they are as close to immortal as it gets. The stuff that made them worth recognizing doesn’t die like they do.

Celebrities are overvalued because the most they contribute is a distraction from our lives. And they are worshiped as minor deities.

until all electronics are destroyed and the small number of hard copies plus the thing that can be powered along with the correct working system and people who have all of them shall be so tiny that they shall hardly be remembered.

To the future!
