Croc Hunter Dead?

Steve Irwin is dead at 44.

Swimming on top of a sting ray, its stinger peirced his heart in a freak occurance.

Much as I liked to make fun of the guy, he was fun and I enjoyed watching him on the Boob Tube.  It is very sad that he is dead.  At least he was able to make a living, and died doing what he loved.
So much oppression in our culture is based on shame about sex: the oppression of women, of cultural minorities, oppression in the name of the (presumably asexual) family, oppression of sexual minorities. We are all oppressed. We have all been taught, one way or another, that our desires, our bodies, our sexualities, are shameful. What better way to defeat oppression than to get together in communities and celebrate the wonders of sex?

it is a huge loss.  the man was dedicated to the conservation of animals of all types.  he will be missed by alot of people, but his nature and what he showed the world will live on and be an epitaph that will be shared for years to come.

I once had a girl actually say "CRICKEY!" when I stuck it up her butt. 
Wonder if she got that from him?

A good library contains something to offend everyone. But the only thing that should be universally offensive to all people are threats of censorship. Silencing those with whom you disagree is not an argument; it's a sign that you have lost the argument, and cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. There is no greater admission of weakness.

I too cried at Steve Irwin's death.  I also cried at the pain that has riddled his wife's body when she spoke to Barbara Walters.  It was a freak accident.  He was an irritating man bent on teaching anyone that wanted to learn wildlife conservation.  That was his main goal.

There was a clip a few days ago on CNN where an 86 year old man in Flordia had the same thing happen and he survived it.  He did what Steve did not...he went to the hospital to have the barb removed.  Had he removed it himself, he would have died.
