Shawn Coaster, 19, died last night from being forgotten at an airport. Being from Australia, he was bound to die a horrible way anyway because Australia's destruction is imminent, but his friends can't even remember his name and his age, so it's a tragedy. "Steve Irwin, and now this, I can't survive..." says Jarrod Nelson, 15, of Sydney, "...what about his education". "He will always be the "Computer Hunter" to me." says Sunny, 24, Canadian. Another Canadian failed to respond. The typical Brit was too busy humping this reporter's leg.
