Steve Irwin passed away today, and by 'passed away' I mean 'was stabbed through the chest by a stingray'. Like Timothy Treadwell before him, and David Johnston before him, nature has a way of dealing painful irony to those who cross its path.

While such tragedies are not to regarded lightly, it is worth looking at how such events reflect upon a society that drives people to take ever more senseless risks with there lives in order to achieve a sense of personal fulfilment.
