  1. Full story!

    Steve Irwin met his fate, wait for it, not with a croc but with a sting ray! God bless his soul !

    Apparently he was filming a new documentry when the sting ray stabbed him through the heart.

    Steve was married with 2 children,R.I.P.

  2. I just heard about this too Jenny. I figuered if the man was going to be killed it would be from a crocodile or a snake, but this was just a freak accident that he got too close to the stingray.

    Really sad news and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  3. As an avid reptile enthusiast myself, I never cared for his seemingly reckless methods, but I always admired his dedication to conservation and his work to promote understanding of these all to often vilified creatures.
    You will be missed, Steve.
     
  4. I thought he was a great entertainer, R.I.P. Steve, condolences to his family.
     
  5. finally got what he meant :oops:

  6. Reckless he may have been, but he got a whole generation of chavs interested in what happens to our planet which isn't a bad thing!

  7. I dont think he was reckless,he just understood how crocs etc think and how they respond to stimuli.basically they are still dinosaurs and have almost preprogrammed responses to situations.He could read them like a book.its a real shame he's gone.At least he was doing what he loved best and didnt get killed by a drunk driver or somesuch.RIP Steevo!
     
  8. End of an era.

    Point well made. His dedication to his work was never in doubt. I hear the tail of the stingray is a bit like being pierced with a bayonet. Rough way to go. Thoughts are with his family.

  10. OLd joke couldn't resist

    Steve Irwin walks into a bar with a pet alligator by his side and puts it up on the bar. He turns to the astonished patrons. "I'll make you a deal. I'll open this alligator's mouth and place my manhood inside. Then the gator will close his mouth for one minute. "Then he'll open his mouth and I'll remove my unit unscathed. In return for witnessing this spectacle, each of you will buy me a drink."
    The crowd murmured their approval.
    Steve stood up on the bar, dropped his trousers, and placed his tackle in the alligator's open mouth. The gator closed his mouth as the crowd gasped. After a minute, Steve grabbed a beer bottle and smacked the alligator hard on the top of its head.
    The gator opened his mouth and he removed his genitals unscathed as promised.
    The crowd cheered, and the first of his free drinks was delivered.
    He stood up again and made another offer.
    " I'll pay anyone £100 who's willing to do the same thing"
    A hush fell over the crowd.
    After a while, a hand went up in the back of the bar.
    A Blonde woman timidly spoke up. "I'll try it! Just don't hit me so hard with the beer bottle!" :lol: :lol:
     
  11. The memory that sticks in my mind was the birth of his first born.

    There he was holding his treasure for the world to see and tears rolling down his face. First time I ever viewed emotion on his face! he had this crazy barmy look when telling the viewers the spitting cobra nearly blinded me that time folks. When most of us would have high tailed it he went closer.

    He will be sadly missed and he was probaly one of the best exports to emerge from OZ for a long time. The last being well you name it.

    Yes the world has lost a good entertainer and a great conservationist. And no doubt a loving family man.

    RIP MATE and thoughts are with his loved ones at this sad time.
     
  12. Bit daft when he was holding his kiddie up to a croc though. Made the Michael Jackson moment on the balcony look tame by comparison.

  13. I never sawed that one. It was showing off his newborn to his mates I remember.
     
  14. Now I'm hearing the whole incident was caught on camera. How long before some sick jackass gets a hold of it and puts it on the net?
     
  15. BootNeckYank - It stated on the news today they are going to show the documentary on TV anyway which is called "Dangerous Sea Creatures" aparently they want to put the incident on it! Beggars Belief!
     
  16. At least if they showed it we'd be able to see whether or not he'd been prodding it with sticks and generally bothering it before it got a sad-on and stabbed him.
     
  17. The loss of Steve Irwin in Australia has been given a lot of publicity throughout the world, some may think too much. However, after his family declined a state funeral a ceremony at his zoo was televised in Australia and although death is everyday news it was wonderful and moving to witness such a deep and sincere expression of public grief.
    Would be difficult I believe not to share or feel such a depth of emotion when his dad and daughter spoke and it was all so genuine. No doubt the sadness will disperse with time but he will stay as a well loved national figure for many years I reckon

    RIP Crikey

    :cry:
