RIP George Michael

It is being reported that George Michael died peacefully at home today. He was 53.

The star, who launched his career with Wham in the 1980s and later continued his success as a solo performer, is said to have "passed away peacefully at home".

Thames Valley Police said South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire at 13:42 GMT.

Police say there were no suspicious circumstances.

I'll never forget waking up in a hospital room after an emergency operation and seeing Wham's 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" video on the television.

I got laid to his music in the '80s. I was a fan of Wham! His solo work? Not so much. But the girls loved it.

Takin' a Look, the queen would do well to wonder about the future of Christianity in England. Muslim majority will not have a Christian queen, all royal holdings seized and off with her head. Princes that are heir to the crown will have to seek elsewhere to live.

Well, it figures somebody else had to join Bowie and Prince for 2016, though GM was not quite up to their stature. It's always threes. (No, I can't really count Glen Frey. When Henley goes, it's serious.)

I don't celebrate the death of a person (though don henley might be an exception), just the death of baby boomer cultural hegemony.

This is possibly the drug of choice for self-euthanists:

A deadly drug, which has been banned from the battlefield under the Chemical Weapons Convention and is being blamed for a spate of drug overdoses in the United States, can be easily bought over the internet for just a few thousand pounds, it has been revealed.

Twelve Chinese online businesses said they could export carfentanil – a synthetic opioid which is being cut with heroin and other illicit drugs - at just $2,750 (£2,233) to the US, Canada and various European countries including the UK, an investigation by the Associated Press found.

Carfentanil is the most potent commercial opioid in the world, according to the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Its chemically similar cousin fentanyl is up to 50 times stronger the heroin and carfentanil is 100 times stronger than fentanyl itself.

Before being discovered by drug dealers, carfentanil and substances like it were viewed as chemical weapons. Assistant Secretary of Defence for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defence Programmes between 2009 and 2014 described the drug as a “weapon”, adding “companies shouldn't be just sending it to anybody”.


A lot of casual users are getting snuffed in these parts because of this stuff. The silver lining is that they still have organs that are good enough to use as transplants. A lot more needy people are being serviced.

From those according to their ability, to each according to their needs, yes?

My wife has assumed that George Michael likely died from HIV/AIDS complications. I'm not so certain. I know that the anti-retroviral meds can keep you alive indefinitely. However, these meds work by inhibiting RNA synthesis, which is essentially accelerated aging process. So he may well have died from this complication.

If I'm correct, the death rate of HIV+ individual will sharply increase in the next 5 years or so due to this factor and we will hear all about it via the media.

Gays using Truvada Prep (costs$1500+ per month to taxpayer or insurance companies) instead of condoms will be having kidney/liver failure in mass a decade from now. It also doesn't protect against anything but AIDS. Drug resistant AIDS came into the US this year thanks to the HIV travel ban being lifted, as soon at that hits the bathhouses it will be the 80s all over again. Although this time they can't say white people are not working hard enough for a cure.

I'm not promiscuous so it doesn't affect me; i even ask my new g/f's to get checked w/me. they love the responsibility and way i'm looking out for "our" health. In a way it's true- way all need to be tested for HPV, gonorrhea STD et al. It's a good foundation for a long term sexual relationship and good for our health. Luckily i've never had a girl come out with "i've got the Clap."

Blogger Ingot9455 December 26, 2016 1:39 AM  

@60 Just to pile on; he nearly died 'of pneumonia' in 2011 as well. He caught pneumonia and needed special treatment in a hospital and barely survived then, when he was only 50.

While pneumonia is very dangerous, you don't expect people to die of it at 50 or 53, not when in a country where antibiotics are available. It only happens that way if they are immune-comprised.

Like say, if they've taken loads of drugs throughout their life and have drug-controlled AIDS. Say.

My youth is gone at this point and George Micheal's death drives that one home.

He was a talented musician who suffered from the curse of being a talented musician.

While it seems unlikely to me, I hope he found his way to a gentle darkness. Rest in peace George Micheal.
