Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter'

SYDNEY, Australia (CNN) -- Steve Irwin, the Australian TV presenter known as the "Crocodile Hunter," has died after being stung in a marine accident off Australia's north coast.

Australian media reports say Irwin was diving in waters off Port Douglas, north of Cairns, when the incident happened on Monday morning.

Irwin was killed by a stingray barb that went through his chest, according to Cairns police sources. Irwin was filming an underwater documentary at the time.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality Monday morning off Port Douglas, according to Australian media.

Queensland Police Services also confirmed Irwin's death and said his family had been notified. Irwin, 44, was director of the Australian Zoo in Queensland.

He and his American-born wife Terri Irwin became popular figures on Australian and international television through Irwin's close handling of wildlife, most notably the capture of live crocodiles.

Irwin's enthusiastic approach to nature conservation and the environment won him a global following. He was known for his exuberance and use of the catchphrase "crikey!"

But his image suffered a setback in 2004 when he held his then one-month-old baby while feeding a crocodile at his Australian zoo.

Irwin's wife Terri was believed to be on location in Tasmania, filming another documentary.

Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer expressed his sorry Monday and said that he was fond of Irwin and was very appreciative of all the work he had done in promoting Australia overseas.

I totally didnt believe it when I got online after work tonight and had a million friends scream MANDY STEVE IRWIN IS DEAD...but, shit..he is.

Apparently his wife doesnt know yet because she's in Tasmania deep in the forest without communication gear, but perhaps that's bullshit. Wow, he's like one of THE most famous people from down this end of the world...I'll miss the stupid bastard.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
"Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars— mere globs of gas atoms. Nothing is 'mere'. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination— stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern— of which I am a part... What is the pattern or the meaning or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little more about it. For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it. Why do the poets of the present not speak of it? What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent."
"Science is a way of trying not to fool yourself. The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool."
"You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing —that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled."

It would've been better if he had been eaten by a croc. Suitably ironic.

And to go out in such crazy STYLE...man a fucking stingray lance through the chest, that is pretty badass. I guess it's what you get for insisting on sticking your nose right up Mother Nature's twat on a daily basis. She will fuck you up.

Everything I know about Australia came from that guy. I never watched any of his documentaries, or his movie or even watched more than 5 minutes of his show but I'll miss that guy.

I swear there's some animal justice book begging to be written about all this.

STINGRAY TO THE MOTHERFUCKIN' CHESSSSSSSST
http://forums.interestingnonetheless.net/display.php?tid=4368

A guy walks into a bar, and orders six shots. The bartender pours them, and he slams them back as fast as he can.
"Woah, buddy!" The bartender says, "why are you drinking so fast?"
"You'd be drinking fast too, if you had what I have," the guy says, gravely.
"Oh," the bartender says, "what do you have?"
"Seventy-five cents."

I really had no idea Steve Irwin was so well-loved until he died and the whole internet burst into tears.

I guess he went out with a certain flair.

Apparently stingray accidents are extremely rare - they've only caused 4 recorded Aussie fatalities and the last one of those was in 1949.

It's doubly ironic then that Irwin was killed by an animal he was trying to prove wasn't dangerous, after having survived numerous encounters with monsters so deadly that even he acknowledged they were rather scary.

They should make that his epitaph.
