Are you wearing khaki for Steve Irwin Day?
γ€°
He was the man who made CRIKEY! famous and spent most of his time darting the bite of a venomous snake, wrangling a crocodile, or rescuing an animal in need of help.
γ€°
Do you have a favourite Steve Irwin memory?

"when i got into the field, nobody but very young kids and illiterate adults were reading comics... so if i've had anything to do with the fact that they're now a legitimate art form and storytelling form, i'm rather proud of that."

This satellite image from NASA’s Earth Observatory shows the extent of the bushfire in Paradise, California, which has largely been destroyed.
γ€°
More than 8,000 firefighters in all battled three large wildfires burning across nearly 1,040 square kilometres in northern and southern California, with out-of-state crews continuing to arrive and gusty winds starting up again.
γ€°
The worst of the blazes was in northern California, where the number of people killed in that fire alone matched the toll in the deadliest wildfire on record in the state.

"but there was a point i thought if those eucalyptus go up, dude, we're done," mark mackey said, whiskey in hand.
〰️
mark mackey was one of many malibu residents who stayed behind to fight in the recent california fires (swipe across to see mark πŸ‘‰πŸ»)
〰️
the entire city of malibu, home to many hollywood celebrities, has been evacuated. the main highway through it is now only filled with police cars and fire trucks.
〰️
the death toll from massive blazes raging across california has risen to 25, with authorities still defending thousands of homes from one of the worst wildfires the state has ever seen.

This is how Australia celebrated the first #ArmisticeDay 100 years ago πŸ₯€
〰️
Thousands of people turned out  on the streets of #Sydney to listen to military figures give an address from a replica sailing ship set up like a stage 🚒
〰️
Sydney actually celebrated the end of the war prematurely- thanks to a false alarm on November 9th. So, when the confirmed news arrived two days later, Sydney saw wild, but controlled celebrations. The same can’t be said for #Melbourne, who derailed a tram car and crashed it through the front window of an office building in their jubilation. πŸš‹
〰️
The rural Victorian town of #Kaniva saw some classic Australian larrikins hold a mock funeral for Kaiser Wilhem II, who many blamed for the war beginning. Their cart reads β€˜Off to bury Kaiser Bill’. ⚰️
〰️
School children dressed up and marched in parades throughout their towns. πŸ’ƒ
