    That is EXACTLY what happened with my first wife.

    Anyone else catch the Memorial Service on the Animal Planet tonight? It is truly amazing how one man, with one great passion, can influence the ENTIRE world. Hopefully people will be able to see what he was able to do during his short life with his warm personality, excitement, and enthusiasm. I wish more people would devote their entire lives to their passions, just like Steve. What an outstanding individual. Rest In Peace mate.

    Post Another "attack"?

    Lighthouse Point man stabbed in chest by stingray
    LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Fla. (AP) - A man was in critical condition
    Thursday morning, a day after a stingray jumped onto his boat and
    stabbed him in the chest, leaving a foot-long barb stuck in him,
    authorities said.
    James Bertakis, 81, of Lighthouse Point, was boating with his
    grown granddaughter and her friend Wednesday afternoon when the
    rare attack occurred. The woman were able to steer the boat back to
    Bertakis' home where they called authorities.
    "It was a freak accident," said Lighthouse Point acting fire
    Chief David Donzella. "It's very odd that the thing jumped out of
    the water and stung him. We still can't believe it."
    Bertakis was conscious when paramedics arrived. Surgeons were
    able to remove some of the barb, but were not able to locate the
    rest and feared it may have migrated. Bertakis suffered a closed
    chest wound, collapsed lung and may have to undergo open-heart
    surgery, rescue officials said.
    The roughly 5-foot wide, 30 pound stingray died on the boat,
    firefighters said. They kept it in a plastic bag and on ice until
    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officers picked it up,
    Sullivan said.
    Ellen Pikitch, a professor of marine biology and fisheries at
    the University of Miami, who has been studying stingrays for
    decades, said the fish are generally docile creatures.
    "Something like this is really, really extraordinarily rare,"
    she said. "I've never heard any reports of a stingray attacking a
    person. Even when they are under duress, they don't usually
    attack."
    "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, 44, died Sept. 4 when a
    stingray's barb pierced his chest while he filmed a TV show on the
    Great Barrier Reef.

    Ya know....if I were that Chris guy that was posting in the "Did you respond to the WTC" thread...I would say those same stingrays probably planted the demo devices in the towers too.

    Well I think it might be retalliation for all the stingrays who have had their barbs cut off them after being caught and released. Ever since I can remember whenever someone catches a stingray they cut off their barbs and release them back into the lake/broadwater/entrance.
    There was some press about how stingrays were all the sudden being found with their stingers cut off after the attack on steve irwin but the reporters realised they were only making fools of themeselves.
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
