    Wikipedia says this little stunt earned Knieval "a crushed pelvis and femur, fractures to his hip, wrist and both ankles and a concussion that kept him in a coma for 29 days".

    I`d say that has to smart a little.

    Proving yet again, it`s all fun and games until someone gets hurt...then it`s just funny:

    "After his crash and recovery, Knievel was more famous than ever. ABC-TV bought the rights to the film of the jump, paying far more than they originally would have, had they televised the original jump live."

    Evel Knievel was the poo when I was a kid. I remember several friends sported casts on their arms after jumping rickety homemade ramps on their bikes. Crash & burn.
