Very sad, I remember when he was actually a respected man in his area (though he still is, although comical)...I always thought he'd get screwed over in a bloody crocidile death...tad irnoic. :(

I didn't much care for him, I'm not that sad that he's dead. People die every day, it's nothing new.

Man I never really liked him but now that hes dead I sorta like him now. But of all of the things a sting ray. If he would have died it would have been better to get killed by a crocodile. To still keep his rep even when hes dead. I SOLUTE YOU STEVE IRWIN!

I would like to keep his honor with correct spelling.
I SALUTE YOU, STEVE IRWIN!


I was actually a big fan.

*sigh* Another hero of mine I never got to meet. :cry: There is still Bill Nye.

Also, SavageLych, I can't beleve, with all these people upset about Steve Irwin dying, you have the nerve to call him a retard, and totally disrespect A DEAD MAN! He died doing something he loved since a kid! Jerks like you shouldn't be on the forums.

Ugh... you took the words right out of my mouth. You guys are sick. There's nothing even slightly funny about this. Would it be funny if a friggin' stingray pierced your heart and instantly killed you? Your family would think that was real funny, wouldn't they? NO! SoBs...

Wow. People are too serious. I laughed.

And apparantly he was really well-known in America. Over here everyone's like "meh".

Yes... yes, we're too serious about death. In reality, you know, if you really, really think about it, it actually quite funny when a loved one dies, isn't it? They should have videos on YouTube where some guy just like... goes around and kills people and then dances all over their body while the camera guy holds their family at gunpoint. That would be hilarious, wouldn't it?

All of you people laughing need to go kill yourselves. It would be so funny! Make sure you have your parents film it, it would definitely win them some money on America's Funniest Home Videos!

Make sure to write poems about death & depression before you do so, & then cut your wrists in a dark corner while crying.

another sad loss, well thats what people will be saying for a week or so, and then the bad taste jokes will come :wink:

To add insult to injury he wasnt killed by a dangerous animal (well im comparison) appartly he's the only the 3rd ever stingray related death recored in the waters of australia.

He was one of those people who was so crap he was good :wink:

He flirted with death one to many times...very ironic indeed that it was a STINGRAY!!! (Stabbed him in the chest and made a hole in his heart according to msn.com). He was a good person yes, but played his cards the wrong way.

Oh, get off your soap box, Electric Rain.

When a loved one dies in a car accident or due to an illness, it is tragic. You look up to the skies and ask, "God, why? What was your purpose in this? Why'd you take him/her-my piller of strength- away from me?"

Steve Irwin repeatedly put himself in danger and, therefore, was asking for this to happen. In effect, he did this to himself! His wife knows it as well.

Irony tends to be humorous.

I'm becoming a bit concerned about this thread. Instead of respecting the man, several of you are disrespecting the dead, saying things you have no business saying.

I'm trying to be neutral on this, but the fact of the matter is that several of you are being insensitive and alienating other posters on this matter. I am not a huge fan of the man, but he died doing something he loved, and he's made a larger contribution than most of you likely have in his field.

Furthermore, the odds of getting stung by a stingray at all are apparently small, getting killed is highly unlikely, and pierced in the heart by a stingray, is a huge fluke. No one could have predicted that he would die in this particular instance, even a professional, though I concede he led a somewhat dangerous life.

I guess what I'm saying is this: Several of you are being insensitive to a man's death, beyond the realm of indifference/ignorance of the man and into pointlessly insulting him, which is something I would expect out of 4chan.

This thread is NOT going in a good direction. If you have an opinion that is respectful or at least objective and/or neutral, then post it. If you simply want to insult a dead man, please refrain from posting in this thread.

There's actually a sticky on /b/ memorialising him...

Yeah, and if you've skimmed the thread, they're acting like the typical /b/ to the news, though a few are reacting with respect to the event. Someone even had enough respect to post a Sad Kitten picture. I hardly expect someone to read a thread upwards of 3000 posts, though.

Also I would like to say 4chan is only for 18+, especially /b/, partially due to images there, and partially due to the sheer brain-rot. DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU ARE A MINOR. PLEASE.
