Angry Environment Weekend! CRIKEY!

Wow, nature’s wrath sure has been in full force this weekend. I was shocked, and then not, at Steve “The Crocodile Hunter” Irwin’s demise by stingray. Apparently barb by stingray is rare and death by stingray is outright freakish. The venomous tail is said to have pierced under Irwin’s ribcage, thereby directly piercing his heart. Dang. Especially sad for his two little babers, Bindi and Bob. Although a very uncommon incident, this has affirmed my belief that man was not meant to live in the ocean. Too many predators. I don’t even want to think about Kevin Costner in Waterworld. Don’t tell oceanographer Pops.

Ell also relayed a very entertaining night in MD wherein Kit’s derelict drunkard brother broke out a chainsaw at midnight, cavorted in the backyard, sawed down a tree, upset a hive of bees that followed him into the house and stung everyone in sight… well, at least Kit and her mother.

One more reason to leave well enough alone. Especially since now I’m for sure going to have to be watching a lot of Irwin “in memorium” footage ala that nutty Grizzly Man Timothy Treadwell junk.
