Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, died in what the media has described as a "freak accident." C'mon now. This guy has been courting death for years, to call it a freak accident is not very accurate.
I'd say, Darwinism at work.
I found him amusing, weird, and entertaining. I also thought he was over the top--but anyway, I guess if I was Australian, the Crocodile Hunter had to be marginally better than Crocodile Dundee, although, I'd have to let my Aussie friends have the last word on that.
Still, no one wished the guy any harm, and as is usually the case with thrill seekers, it's the family left behind to suffer. May he rest in peace.
