[12:29] <FireFly_9> Some more words about Steve Irwin:
[12:29] <FireFly_9> Steve Irwin followed his bliss right into Legend. His genuine joy came through on every episode of his show. Sure, he may have hammed it up. Sure, he took a million reckless risks and the habit eventually caught up to him.
[12:29] <FireFly_9> But the man lived like he meant it. Who can say they saw his sense of purpose waver? When he spoke of his passion for conservation, of the mission that had chosen him, it was plain that his heart did not know the corruption of doubt.
[12:30] <FireFly_9> Those rushing to be the snarkiest belle at the ball would do well to examine their own lives, their own ambitions. How many of your hopes and dreams are still folded up and uncolored? Steve Irwin became a mythic figure in 44 years. He stomps now through the wilds of Elysium, tracking game greater than any he knew on this mortal coil.
[12:30] <@SpeedRcrX> I now officially hate stingrays
[12:31] <@SpeedRcrX> This guy lived more life in one show than most of us will live in our lifetimes
[12:31] <The Vampire Lyrica Hubert> Steve should feel right at home crossing the river Styx ; the first animal he'll see, Cerberos, is described as "a monstrous three-headed dog (sometimes said to have 50 or 100 heads) with a snake for a tail and serpentine mane". I imagine he won't look back.
[12:33] <@S.X. Aino> Steve wouldn't have wanted you to hate the stingray
[12:34] <@S.X. Aino> . . . Sometimes I wonder if humans are only allotted so many amazing moments in their life. When they're used up, they die. I can't imagine he would have traded it for 100 more years.
[12:35] <@SpeedRcrX> <-- Steve's funny Sportscenter commercial
[12:35] <Reverend_H> <-- one for Fedex, yo
[12:35] <@SpeedRcrX> ... f[BLEEP]k you Elios
[12:36] <Reverend_H> I didn't mean it like that T_T
[12:37] <Reverend_H> I was certain that the reason he was able to do the things that he did with these incredibly dangerous animals, was that there was some sort of unspoken agreement between him and the animal kingdom.
[12:37] <Reverend_H> Snake: Oh crap, someone's touching me. I am so going to bite this f[BLEEP]ker... wait, it's Irwin. Fine, yeah yeah, I'm a real beauty. Uh huh, yeah show me to the camera. Ok, now put me back man, I'm trying to get some sleep here.
[12:38] <@SpeedRcrX> Here, his 10 most deadliest snakes show
[12:38] <@SpeedRcrX> part 1
[12:38] <@SpeedRcrX> part 2
[12:39] <@SpeedRcrX> part 3
[12:39] <@SpeedRcrX> To be so passionate about a cause that you live your life for it, and risk death day-in-day-out for it, and feel the joy of life doing so instead of grim obligation, to become enormously successful doing so, and funnel all of that success back into your passion. I can wish myself and my friends and everyone here no better. He died young but wasted no time in living every moment of his life to the fullest extent possible. There's no Darwin award here. He was simply swimming in the ocean and got stabbed by a creture who I'm sure still had his admiration, sympathy and love even in that moment. If there's an afterlife, I'm sure he's up there defending that Stingray to every angel that'll listen.
[12:39] <@SpeedRcrX> But yeah, I can't ask for him to rest in peace. It's not what he'd want. Live on in adventure, mate.
