Obviously not. You made a stupid comment, were called on it, then tried to use sarcasm to cover it up. Then, upon being called on that, you attempted sarcasm yet again. May I suggest a different tactic? Like puns, for instance.

By the way, why do you keep throwing Russian nobility into pits? Your casual use of Tsar chasms is rather disturbing...

You have no heart :twisted:

Well, I guess that's what you get if you fuck around with wild animals.

Although being killed by a stingray is a death that occurs like... almost never.

Sad thing, but at least he died in a manner befitting his passion, rather than, say, getting hit by a bus or falling down some stairs.

Indeed. If I were to die with a broken foil through my heart, I wouldn't be too terribly upset (of course, I would be dead, so I wouldn't be feeling much of anything...).

I dunno, I think it would of been more fitting for Steve to die by a croc, rather than a stingray. For you to die with a broken foil would be expected. It would be more like you getting choked to death by your mask slipping off one day.

You do make a valid point. I don't agree, however. It would have been the perfect death if he had been bitten by a croc or snake, but he was killed by a wild animal while (no doubt) taunting it. It is perhaps more akin to me being run through by an epee, rather than a foil.

Actually he wasn't taunting it. It was due to an unforntunate positon of him (behind the ray), and the camera man (infront of the ray). The stingray felt trapped, and thus lashed out, killing Steve.

Bah. Semantics. I would consider that taunting.

They probably knew enough about marine life to be aware of the stingray feeling threatened. I'd call it taunting as well.
