Another "I didn't take the vaccine now I'm dead" stories.


It is with great sadness and profound dumbassary....

That is a pretty rough looking 30 though.

It's not called "America's Got Brains"
 
2021-12-03 6:41:10 PM  
He had an immune system!
 
2021-12-03 6:44:07 PM  
...and?

You can call me Jay, or you can call me Jay, or you can call me Jay Jay, but you doesn't has to call me alive.
 
2021-12-03 6:58:22 PM  
No vaccine?
No farking sympathy whatsoever.
 
2021-12-03 6:58:59 PM  
This was his choice. He chose to die a horrible death. I don't know why one would choose that kind of a death, but it's the choice he made.

Phillips was eliminated early on 2009's Season 4 of AGT. He came back to the show for Season 12 in 2017, but was eliminated prior to the quarterfinals.


And receiving one more elimination in Season 30 of the Life of Jay Jay in 2021.
 
2021-12-03 7:05:03 PM  
I'm sure that he lived his life being a lesson to others.

If only he'd gotten the golden buzzer with all of the confetti replaced with syringes of vaccine.
 
2021-12-03 7:18:25 PM  
Guess not having a brain isn't one of the his talents

Phillips' death was first reported by TMZ, which cited family sources saying the unvaccinated 30-year-old rocker died while suffering from Covid.
Phillips was eliminated...


Yes, yes he was.
 
2021-12-03 7:21:22 PM  
How about a show called:

America's Got Morons

Each week, someone new is featured who's died of Covid because they didn't get a vaccine due to their need for freedum.

Admittedly, it would be a very sad show.

A heavy metal keyboardist?

It seems not getting vaccinated wasn't his first bad choice.

Ever open up one of these stories, see the picture of the person, and go "Yeah, that tracks"?

I just tested negative for sympathy for the nth time.

Oh, and https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com

To be fair, only ~8 billion doses have been provided globally. He was probably waiting to go over the data to see if the vaccines are really safe.

Dying from a vaccine-preventable disease at age 30?

Indeed.

Past tense being critical.

Then again, so was he.

Not so much. His death, on the other hand...

So, uh, how long did it take you to Google up a picture of someone with a keytar that didn't look utterly ridiculous?
 
2021-12-03 8:47:04 PM  
This should have been under the main tab because this isn't entertaining at all.

Yeah, that was a pretty rough 30, the hair didn't help the look.

That's basically HermanCainAward... it's pretty popular place.

It's not really sad seeing anti-vaxxers die when so many of them are also horrendously awful people.  (There are some that seem like they're decent normal people who just made a poor decision or got conned by right wing trolls and disinformation and those are kinda sad, but they're a seemingly tiny minority in comparison)
 
2021-12-03 9:58:17 PM  
Good riddance

Enough of this bullshiat! I'm a certified vaccinator and have been deployed several times since this started. We are vaccinated because 1) for me, it is required, 2) my family has at least a modicum of responsibility to the society in which they are a part, and 3) it's just frkkin stupid to not utilize freely available tools to protect yourself, your family, and the general public upon which you rely for, I don't know, EVERYTHING!

I'd like to get this thing over with available resources and get on with discussing important things like the pros and cons of (somewhat) obscure French cars, hydropneumatic control systems used in French cars, and the minimum/maximum amount of blood to sacrifice while within the acceptable limits when performing routine maintenance (e.g., cleaning the "canned ham" air filter on a 1979 - 1986 Peugeot 505 with the XN6 engine (including differences between the CA and federal models for 1979).

THESE ARE IMPORTANT THINGS!
