Why isnt this in the news forum? it shows it was closed there but then you cant find where they said it was already posted.. so i found this one.



i found steve very entertaining,so i chose the 'entertainment forum'.i hope that is ok with you.



if its that big a deal that you have to point this out,you can start one in the 'news forum' or ask a moderator to move it.

Heh, I guess is shows what an impact it had that so many people felt compelled to start threads to talk about it.



I found this on someone's LiveJournal:

I am still in shock. I used to hate him, then I became addicted to the Diaries program where they show all the folks at the zoo and his daughter. I fell in love. I am SOOOOO sad. I feel terrible for his family, friends and crew. I guess we all grew to feel he was invincible. But he wasn't. From what I read he was just snorkling, and it was sort of a freak accident. How terrible.



I hope his family carries on his promoting of conservation.

That was sudden and very saddening. It would be nice for him to live to a great old age with all those memories. Well, everyone has to go someday. Rest in peace, Steve Irwin.

I didn't know tourists could come and kill crocks.



I was out all night, and when I got home & online at 6am, I saw a few people I know through LiveJournal posting links about his death. I've watched his show several times, maybe not all the time, but sometimes. It still feels kind of like someone's just pulling a really sick joke here... It seems unreal... Now I realise why I liked the guy... He's one of the very few people who care about anything in this world at all!! There needs to be more people like him, not less. Well, this goes down as the first celebrity death that's ever really depressed me.

VERY SAD!

This is the only man I know of that cared about animals so deeply!

Even refusing to give his animals sedatives because it can cause harm.

So sad!

He took crazy risks all the time, but he did alot to help animals, and for that, I liked him. I feel bad for his wife and especially his two young children.

Heard about this, this morning. Very sad. I always loved his show, so much so, that I wrote the zoo some letters and emails. They always replied, once steve did himself, once his wife and the other times zoo staff. He will be very missed.

This is awful. Steve Irwin's documentaries were absolutely brilliant, and he was a legend in every way!



That said, you can't say that this wasn't expected. His hands-on approach was always mocked with people joking that one of these days, one of the dangerous animals would end up killing him. The only differenc eis that whereas my image of irwin's death wa sof death by crocodile or snake, and it was a stingray instead.



I think we'll all miss him.

I live in Australia, and in effect grew up with Steve. He was always a part of life. Still can't imagine him gone. I mean, he was always there... you thought he was indestructable... and then bam! I still remember when he was introduced to America. Thats how long he's been a part of my life.



Legend. Thats what he is. Up there with Ned Kelly, except not for killing people but for saving animals and raising awareness. He won't be forgotten.

Regards to Steve now & forever I hope and moreover believe he will live on, in me as much as anybody else who liked and loved him! Shocker with tears but ultimately I think with a smile! And despite the horrible sudden-ness of hearing the news, Steve was no snail, so *sudden* suits him I guess!....



I don't currently have much opportunity to read up on the details, but I hear what happened is that the crew of the documentary were filming *all the while* (?) a somebody tells me here in England, and that Steve actually tried to pull the barb of the Stingray out of his chest himself, is that right?



Either way, he will be sorely missed by me and rejoiced at the same time for all time future!

Ya, but the thing he actually died doing wasn't anything particularly dangerous. It was a freak accident. And I don't think he ever whined or said, "no fair" after any of his various injuries or brushes with death. I think he accepted the risks he took.

Well, I think he died doing what he loved--educating people about the world's most dangerous animals. It's too bad for his family though.



R.I.P. Steve
