    His wife is from here in Eugene and

    appears in the news from time to time. This is especially sad for her and the kids. Steve loved to flirt with

    danger. I had a feeling it was inevitable something would go wrong sooner or later. Too bad though.

    He probably did, too.

    My heart goes

    out to his family. Better to die doing something you love, though, than to live doing something you hate.

    Australia is literally in a

    state of mourning. He did alot for conservation, he entertained with his documentaries and lifted Australias profile

    as a tourist destination, he was quite a charachter, and a natural talented showman. But he played with fire for a

    very long time. He played around with some very deadly creatures and The law of probability says something would

    happen to him. But its ironic, that a Ray killed him, these creatures are not aggressive and cases of them causing

    death are extremely rare, and the circumstances surrounding the death are really freaky. God bless him, I feel for

    his family, it is such a waste of life at only 44 yrs old.

    Worse of all, he wasn't even

    messing with the ray, it was a freeking accident.

    I heard there were calls for a "state funeral", like they give

    the Prime Minister.

    i can't believe it, to

    die from a ray is just so rare, there have been something like 17 deaths worldwide from them, the poisinous barb

    stabbed him in the heart and he almost died instantly. its so sad, he woke up that day thinking he was gonna go on

    another exbidition (wrong spelling), one tthat wasnt even that dangerous but little did he know he was gonna die in

    a few hours, well best of luck to his family

    With this guy, it wasn't a

    matter of "if" he was going to die young and in a stupid accident, but rather just when and how.

    I thought he

    was nuts and a bad influence.
