Death of a Gladiator

Yesterday a Gladiator died entertaining us. He could wrestle the beast with his arms, he could hang his neck in the jaws of death and dared tricks which we mortals think are possible only by superheroes. We cheered him on his every conquest.

But than the beast did what he does best, actions that can be never be predicted. A venomous sting pierced through the heart of brave, a surreal frame that was supposed to entertain us suddenly became terrifying. The Gladiator fell in the abyss, the emperor shrugged, the audience aghast and than there was announcement for new Gladiator entering arena.
Steve Irwin... World's original Wildlife Warrior, died from a sting of unassuming sea creature.

@Arch... did Arun ever watch TV? I mean except for sports channel.

@Velu... Actually the post was suppose to be a sarcastic about Steve's brand of wildlife conservation. But at the same time he was neccessary part of scheme, because thats the only way one can capture people's attention to wildlife conservation effort.

@Arch... Most probably I would be flying off on Nov. 4th. Has Arun returned?

w.r.t Net Connection, how about broadband, are those connections equally bad?
