Ohhhyeah. He'd be all amazed, going on and on in that hyper way of his about how he's handled big crocs and poisonous snakes, and what finally got him was something that's killed hardly anybody else! Crikey! :omg:

Ah, so true xD
Though... I kind of had a feeling that it wasn't going to be a croc that killed him...
At least he died knowing that he was helping to save the lives of animals...

ah ok , thats was what i was thinking of.. :)

but 18. When you think thats a couple of hundred years of record keeping... and in 1995 200'000 + people died of toilet related accidents in the usa alone.. thats a really bloody low number.

still bad that hes gone or not , and low odd included, he wasnt going to die just sitting in an armchair . He was out there , doing what he did. :D That make it feel, not good, but , right. If that makes sence.

Oh, it totally does. He went out doing what he loved. IMO, that's the second-best way to go, right after dying in one's sleep - and, as you said, Steve sure as heck wasn't going to die just sitting in an armchair.

It's sad.. but maybe it was time for him to die.. maybe he played with death to many times... maybe if that stingray wouldn't kill him... at his next shooting he would be bitten by something else... it's sad... but death is between us... every day hundreds of love people die.... we cannot do nothing... every death is like something hitting us with all it's power... and we are unable to do anything :cry:

It's a real shocker that it was a sting ray. I was thinking it woudl of been a bigger animal that would of killed him, like a Croc... not a ray... And I feel the same way. Such a sad thing, he was a great man.

I loved this. It makes me feel sad, yet again, about the death of one of my greatest idols ever. Being an American, I both empathize and sympathize with my Aussie brothers and sisters - When I heard the news (already sick to my stomach beforehand) I couldn't believe my ears. Before I knew it I was sobbing uncontrollably, saying "Oh my god" over and over, pacing, and to this moment it still makes me cry.

The reason I empathize with you, my Aussie friends, is because I have an inkling of what you are going through. I loved Steve, he was my childhood hero and I had dreams of someday going to Australia to live and work in his zoo.

The reason I sympathize is because though I am horribly traumatized by the death of my childhood idol, I believe my pain is nothing compared to the loss that Australia feels at the moment.

I do know, and it is some consolation to myself, that were Steve to be here, he would have said: "It was my fault, I went too far. I pushed myself into that animal's space and it retaliated, it was not the animal's fault at all... it was doing what came naturally to it." And this makes me glad because we all know Steve, even in his dying moments, would wish us to think of the animals first.

Which is why I have decided that I am going to go into Zoology anyhow, go down to Australia and live out my dream... without Steve. I needed a sign to get my life in check, and his dying - as a gruesome omen of sorts - made me realize that the world cannot survive without a Steve Irwin. I'm no good for a replacement, but maybe if we all, as Steve Irwin fans and people who looked up to him when they were young, banded together and did a little something, or a big something, just SOMETHING for the natural animals of the world... maybe it would equate to what we have lost.

Ohh my! buddy!! it's really touching what you've said, it's the most moving and beautiful thing I've ever read in all my life!...Oh my! I just don't know what to say, your really warm and heartfelt comment just melted my soul...I know what you mean buddy, seriously. I truly loved him...he was my hero too, and my dream also was to go to Australia and to work in his zoo! You're right, we all know him, he never could blame the animals for that.
You know, when I was a child I was a cheerful an outgoin child with very good notes in schoo, and my dream was to be a biologist or and go work in the Zoo obviously, but when I was a teen, I had many very thought problems and I couldn't study for a pretty good time, and instead of that I had to work in many places washing dishes and ovens, cutting hair, and doing many other hard things. My brothers started to look at me as a loser because my parents always were yelling at me saying I was stupid and a loser, with time my family forgot who I was and I became a very insecure and shy girl, and my self-confidence went to a so low level that no one could ever imagined...I only survived still like that, because I yearned so deeply to fulfill my childhood dream of being a biologist or veterinarian and work there!! And meet him and his family and friends, I just wanted to tell him he was my Mentor and say thanks to him!!
I realized in the Zoo's website there were an address to write, you know he was one of the very very few people from tv who actually had a contact adress to say something (or rather, the only one) he wasn't like those vain artist or actors, he was a really warm, honest and reliable person, but as I felt like a looser at those momments I never wrote any email. I just thought it was the right thing, I thought I was protecting him from my bad reputation cos I didn't wanted that someday someone find out that who wrote was a failure and people make bad jokes as they used to (specially in the media) or say "He was not your Mentor" I was ashamed, so I hoped to work and save money to study and then to go there, as a scientist, and meet him in person! I believed I could be able to do it!...Until that day when I knew he passed away....Now there's no one day in wich I just don't blame myself for not write anything to him, or wondering if I really protected him, if people would have known about me actually, or what would have happened if you I had written a message to him. I will never know if I did the right thing. When he died all what I wanted was to give up, just to give up and say God "Oh God please take me off here!!!", I said that many times, I mourned him for months, until my mom were saying to me why I was exagerating so much, if he was not of my family, and made fun of...they didn't wanted to give me their support, and I just swallowed my cry for dignity so the couldn't make fun of me, but even now, when I saw your message I just could not help crying a bit.
A pretty good time after his dead, I realized I just couldn't stand such so awful pain, and the only way to feel good again, it was to continue with what he was doing. So I tried so hard to see the best side of things and do my best, I wanted to do something good for nature and the world, but problems were there still and couldn't study, later I was fired form my job, I gave up and I leave my childhood dream of being a scientist. I had already given up, even now I'm studying, I'm not a scientist. I'm studying accounting and because my father wanted it and, I was preparing to be mediocre and accept a miserable life....But just right now I realized something! You're SO right!! the world cannot survive without a Steve Irwin. I know I cannot replace him either, but you made me realize we all can try to do something!! Everyone who knew him when they were younger, all of us, as you just said!! :D So I've decided I will not give up ! You can count on me to make something to continue his legacy!! thanks a lot to remind me that buddy! :hug: I would like to know you better and being your friend! ^^ I would like to invite to my gallery if you want to visit it someday, I've made some little drawings of him :)

You may have loved Steve, but one of the saddest things is that many Australians thought of him as an embarassment.

Oh that's really bad man! if it's true it's really sad, cause he actually did the opposite to that, he was really an inspiration! And he made honor to Australia, even at other countries eyes! For example I'm from Mexico, and thanks to him I met Australia even though I've never been there, and if he’s any guide of how Australia citizens are, then you can be sure Aussies are the smartest, the most cheerful, those with the best sense of humor, the most witty, the most good-natured, understanding, compassionate people! That’s what he were for many people in Mexico, and in places like Argentina and Chile (I have friends from there) everytime we looked at him.
