In which case we still qualify as the average Aussie has twice your IQ points and three times the common sense.

Step on one sting ray.

1. He didn't step on it, he swam PAST it and it fired the barb at him.
2. You dont "step" on stingrays as they normally stay away from humans as this was a freak occurrence and they usually stay on the move, havng gills as they do, and needing to keep moving so as they can breathe...you unutterable, uneducated FOOL
3. Steve Irwin was fifteen times the man, twenty times the father and a hundred times the hero then you will ever be or hope to be and will remain an icon to conservationists everywhere.
His daughter is loved and adored by all Australians, she and her mother are carrying on his legacy and have the popular support of EVERYONE..Bindi is her father's daughter and we could not be more proud of her....if I were you, I'd never make that comment in the hearing of any Australian...
4. That one remark, was I an admin, would be enough to ban your ass PERMANENTLY for one of the most offensive comments in living history.

Another case of me agreeing with you 100% under the scope of this particular reply to Logan's particular post. Someone call Guinness.
Irwin was a very brave man, a scientist by more than education....the kind of education biologists dream about. "Crocodile Hunter" did more to reinforce my conservation stances than any other influence in my hunting and fishing career.
Most of this board doesn't know it, but I have a given a home to two very large Columbian Boas because one of my friends had to deploy for an extended period of time. I would have never had the confidence if it hadn't been for Irwin's show.
My entire family watches animal planet, our kids included. Our kids were really, really sad when we had to explain to them what happened to Steve. They still watch Mindy when she's on before their bedtime.
In short and to sum up; Steve Irwin was a family man, a conservationist, and the ideal we 'gun-toting redneck deer hunter killers' strive for. He taught us hunters our responsible place within the animal kingdom in a method that was both entertaining and informative. Yes Irwin was an inspiration and teacher to every hunter, environmentalist, and outdoorsmen in the U.S. and he did it all from a continent away. I wish like hell he was still alive. There weren't many men who could bring that sort of excitement, family entertainment and learning to my living room screen without the need for PG17 ratings.
Yeah Logan, don't fuck with his memory. He was much bigger than Australia, and a hell of a lot bigger than a freak stingray accident. Let's not reduce the man's memory to that. He was worth so much more to so many people. His memory deserves more than a joke. His memory deserves a medal.
