I didn’t have a chance to post this earlier since I’ve been so busy moving and shit, but I wanted to give a shout-out to Steve Irwin, the erstwhile Crocodile Hunter who died a few days ago in a freak accident. He was killed by a stingray barb, which is actually a pretty rare way to die. Leave it to Steve to live through hundreds of crocodile encounters only to die from a relatively benign creature. The stingray got him right through the heart.
More than anything, this totally sucks for his family; especially his father, wife and two young kids. He knew that he could die at any moment; it’s part of the job. But it’s still sad to see him go and leave some rugrats behind. So, rock on Steve. Wrestle that big crocodile in the sky.
