I feel sorry for the guy that was in front. He got probably 2-3x worse of an impact.

Yeah most rivers I`ve seen start somewhere in the mountains, but that`s just me.

Its the beginning of a river. Follow one of your wide Canadian rivers upstream some time, we will see how small it gets at the beginning.

Lol... so does that river start there? I don`t know anything about American geography (or geography in general as a matter of fact) but arent rivers supposed to start from a source of water like a glacier or smth...

Meter1060, Apples_Rock, yeah! represent!
And Nyennaserego, I will admit, if these dumbasses with a camcorder had tried to jump the Mississippi River, it would indeed have been impressive. But on a side note, which i actually think is the supposed main note of this thread, i could have jumped that uber-long puddle in my wheelchair...although i wouldn`t really want to risk falling into the garbage juice...ew...

Yeesh. Those darn hooligans. I would have realized that this was going to be hell once the cart bent.. But I suppose at that point it was far too late..

Well judging by the size of the area allowed for the river and the length of the bridge in the background, I would say this was in a dry season for this "river", if there is a particular dry season in LA. That`s pretty common when the rivers are diverted into canals through a city. If I am mistaken, and this actually the full size of the river, I should hope using the term "river" is something of an inside joke.

And for the Canadian fellow who knows all about America`s rivers, the US is not one whole concrete structure, with dribbles of water. Ever heard of the Mississippi River? I believe it`s much larger than Canada`s largest river, which if I remember correctly is the Mackenzie River.

And tell me why we have resorted to arguing about rivers now? We should be talking about what it is about shopping carts that makes people do stupid things.

That wouldn`t even have been impressive if they had succeeded. Which confuses me further as to why the hell they wanted to do this.

they needed some extra support on the front end of the basket over the bottom frame. it crimped once they hit the bottom of the side wall.

This kind of adult language and violence doesn`t belong on this site. Neither does the sexually explicit "Bullz-Eye" ads and the "hot links" at the top of the page that have reference to porn - soft core or not, it`s not acceptable.
Please remove it at once.

who said it was a great river? and why in the world do you spend time "rating" rivers?
and why do you have to be annoying enough to turn a simple video into an argument about nationality?

Perfectly explained Mr. SmagBoy. I would think you`d need a ramp to jump something like that. I could be wrong, but then again...

Why did they have to wear helmets? I was hoping for a happy ending. :-(

The only thing keeping them from a blazing success there was lack of a ramp, lack of some form of propulsion (which could easily have been achieved with gasoline, a funnel and lighter) and the fact that they had way too much helmet weighing them down. ;-)
