I don't care to see it.

On the other hand, I am curious to see Steve Irwins final moments. For a couple of reasons. I personally think he got careless and got too dam close to the critter. Also, attacks by sting rays are very rare.

Plus, he said quite a few times if anything ever happened, to keep the cameras rolling because he wanted people to see.

Interesting thing to think about, I guess.
If the last moments of your life were filmed... Would you want people to be able to see it? Your loved ones? Would you want it posted on YouTube?

Why does life keep handing us these stupid questions?

Steve Irwin's family should decide that-he gave the world quality entertainment and it was also very educational-a rare thing in the sewer of television-Anna Nicole Smith and her parasite shyster boyfreind apparently peddled death photos of her son-if this is true it is as low as it gets-I had no interest in her at all-it would be better to spend more time on the lives of brave men and women who are dying in the service of this country

I believe that death is too personal to share.

Not too much thinking involved in whether I'd want my death posted on Youtube.

I also agree with you about Irwin being careless. His death was tragic, but it wouldn't be as tragic if there weren't two young children involved. Once you have children you have a personal responsibility to be there for your kids. Taking unnecessary chances, such as getting too near a stingray, (for ratings) cost him his life. This means his young children are paying the price for his desires of fame, fortune and ratings.

What happens to some of these celebrities that eventually drives them over the edge to do more and more outlandish behavior? Do they become so consumed with wanting to be in the spotlight that they have to keep reinventing themselves to stay in the media?
