Now, before I say this, let me get it out there. I feel deeply sorry for his family and close friends. I can't imagine what they're going through.

BUT...

I didn't, don't, and NEVER WILL like that guy. I think he was a scamartist and a fake who had the wool pulled over everyone's eyes and only did crazy **** for money and fame.

But that's just me. And he shouldn't have died. Even though he was a scam, he DID do some alright things, and its not OK for anyone to die so tragically and horribly.

I think it would have been funny if he died in a silly way like tripping down a set of stairs and impaling himself on the point of a pair of faux alligator shoes or something like that.....
or maybe it's just me

Yes, it's sad he died. Yes, he will be missed. But if anybody didn't believe that he'd be killed by some kind of animal at some point then they've been living under a rock.

that was the stupidest ****in media event ever. it's like telling superman not to fly with his kid. it's not like letting some untrained schmo like you or me close to a croc. he's the ****in crocodile hunter. it's what he does. since he was a kid. and his dad exposed him to crocodiles

must have been a slow news day

I was actually hoping for him going into a lake with like, forty crocodiles in it and having a sudden heart attack.

Okay, a warning to most of you... skip over this if you're not in the mood for a sanctimonious rant... but I'm on a lot of ritalin and it's making me write a lot.

I liked him cuz he was a character. A seriously unique guy. There's so many boring celebrities out there, but Steve Irwin was an original. Yeah he was looney tunes, but that's why I liked him! His shows were a blast to watch and he was doing it to bring awareness to animal conservation. He spent millions buying up large swaths of land in Australia, Fiji, the US and other areas purely for preservation purposes. Saying he was a "scam-artist" is pretty stupid. What kinda scam-artist spends his whole life from the age of 9 learning how to approach and handle dangerous creatures that could kill him in an instant and do it with zeal and passion? Or start up foundations and give much of his fortune to wild-life charities?

Plus, it seems like the cool thing to do on the internet these days is just to ****-talk or make retarded YTMND-esque photoshops of whoever's the latest celebrity to bite it. (Fuck, forget celebrities... 9/11 victims aren't off-limits) Someone may have had no previous opinion on the guy and they'll just jump on the bandwagon hoping to come up with the next clever "pwnd! u dead ***** lol!!1" photo. Really mature. If I wasn't so addicted to the ****ing internet, I would hate it so much. I mean it really brings out the worst in otherwise respectful people, and I'm not referring to anyone here specifically, but **** like the Yahoo boards, IMDB boards, YTMND that kinda stuff... because they realize there's no consequence to what they say or what they do. When you have nobody to answer to, all your inhibitions go out the window and you can be the most insensitive piece of **** you want. I agree with Ted Stevens. Goddamn series of tubes is corrupting America...

Alright this will be my last word on this, and it's not a reply to anyone in particular. I fully realize this comes off as preachy, sanctimonious and yes, hypocritical, cuz I too am guilty of doing off-color **** that outside the realm of the internet would be seen as tasteless. I've said **** here, including in this thread about crabby's kid that I would NEVER in a million years say to anyone in public. It's like there's two extremes out there... one is the *****-factor on TV, especially the news, where people are afraid to call anyone out due to rampant political correctness, corporate bias or just the ****ing FCC... and the other extreme is the *******-factor on the internet where I'll run across pricks photoshopping dead people on the very day they died. There's gotta be some common ground. Unfortunately I think the comforting anonymity of that monitor you're staring at right now means you'll never find it.

Yeah well his "training" did him no good against a stingray attack, did it?
long answer: his was the third reported death by stingray in australian HISTORY. how do you train for a freak accident? short answer: you're an idiot.

I know enough about crocs to know that it is insane to take a one-month old baby that close..it's negligent to the max!
that was the problem. a bunch of monday morning quarterbacks who don't know anything about crocodiles compared to steve irwin were saying 'he shouldn't do that' when the truth was THEY shouldn't do that. they pretend to be in the same league with him, when in reality they'd **** themselves if they ever came in close contact with a croc or venomous snake. bunch of posers

My tribute to the Croc Hunter by AngryAmerican
9-06-06
Oy! I'm disguised as a typical male frat bar goer in order to infiltrate the lair of the elusive Southern Austrailian Downtrodden Bar*****. Gotta be careful, they can appeah outta nowhere...
Oy! There's one now! Oh she's beautiful! Notice the harsh, unnatural chemical hue of her luxurious pelt! And her 'confederate flag' markings! Crikey! What a gorgeous speciman!
Uh-oh, sh'e noticed me...i'm gonna stand still and look broke and desperate. I'm hoping she won't charge me. And adult female SADB can reach speeds of 10 MPH or more when provoked.
Hey baby! buy me a drink. I'll blow ya.

His expertise is reptiles and snakes, not marine life. People had said before he died that if he were to be killed by an animal, it would most likely be in the ocean.

The irony is not that he was killed by an animal. It's that he was *not* killed by one of the crazy dangerous animals that he messed with on a daily basis.
Granted, there would be a much higher disassocation, and thus stronger irony, if he'd died of alcohol poisoning or something along those lines, but I think the point is driven home a lot more powerfully in this way.
Note again that irony isn't always (or even usually) funny. It's just weird.

Yeah, that was incredibly lame. I still can't figure out why they singled irony out. Why not mirth, sarcasm, or laissez-faire? And why would irony be dead anyway? Why would a terrorist attack mean that irony is dead?

Maybe there was someone named Irony on one of the planes.
