Latest news is that it was probably an overdose on sleeping pills - hopefully it was accidental.

There is no such thing as an “accidental” overdose on sleeping pills really. You need a massive overdose (think: 50 to 100) to kill yourselve.

That would depend on a lot of things, actually.

They could be extra super-strong pills, and he accidentally took as many as he would if they were regular ones.  That’s doubtful, but a possibility.

He could have taken a whole handful of them, thinking that he really needed to get to sleep but would have a hard time doing it.

He could have had a lot of alcohol first, and then taken the pills.  The alcohol would boost the potency of the pills, especially if he was really drunk and forgot how many pills he’d already taken.

Yup, he was on Stilnox.  Apparently known as Ambien in the US.  Has some side-effects (including sleep-walking) that’s caused the Australian Adverse Drug Reactions Advisory Committee to put the stuff under review.

And apparently Stilnox is old news…now it’s a cocktail of several drugs.

Naturally, the ‘Westborough Baptist Church’ plan to picket his funeral...

Hope they can afford the airfare since services will probably be in Australia.

Me too, as the Aussie cops are likely to be a lot less understanding of either their ‘holy mission’.

Yeah, I was just thinking that.  Oh well.  Hope that the funeral won’t be anywhere near my work place, in that case.

Tah…He met his (ex?) wife Michelle on the set of Brokeback.  I didn’t see it, though.

I know articles mention they split…but I wonder if they were really divorced yet.

I don’t think they were ever married.

If that is the case, then they never really divorced, did they?  wink

But in an alternate reality they could have been married.  Or maybe not.  Then again they may still be married somewhere else in time and space.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
