"Not all at once though...that would definitely be impressive."

Especially since your body only has 1.5 gallons at most at any given time. You`d need 6 bodies full of blood.

Which, of course, you COULD do...

Trying to land it the first time is what put him in a wheelchair to begin with.

Kid, you didn`t set a world record. You just did something nobody else would bother to do.

Thank goodness for the neck guard. But I must say, Travis Pastrana would be proud.

that`s unfair, he obviously has the advantage of not being afraid of breaking his spine.

What did I do?

Why do the IAB captions always have to insult the viewer `what`d you do?` retorical questions that are desigined to make less of our achievements thereby increasing the atributes of the guy in a wheelchair as if it`s our fault he crippled...this a kind of juvenile phsycology is wasted on most people that are aware of being alive...

please please IAB boys and girls... knock this s h i t e on the head...

Well, it`s not like he had much to lose. His parents couldn`t talk him out of it with the whole, "You`ll break you back and never walk again story."

He`s not trolling, he`s just stupid enough to give out his real IAB password. So now someone else has hacked his account and is trolling on his behalf...

I think crippled people should be put to death. They are a waste of our resources. If you disagree, you are probably retarded and therefore should be shot too.

Should I feel bad for laughing harder and harder every time he failed?

Especially the times when the guys that were supposed to run and help him just sort of stood there...

And I have no clue what I was doing. `Cept breathing, I was probably doing a fair amount of that... I should hope.

fauxfox, he has spina bifida, so no, he is not completely paralyzed. but, he still cannot walk without the help of crutches, which i bet are a lot harder to do tricks on.

Uh, some people have some disability in their legs. Many people in wheelchairs can stand for short amounts of time. Don`t be hatin` just cause he still has some feeling in them.

First I fail to see the need for neck protection...and then i did not know that skittles could help you make your way out of a wheel chair...the kid was standing up "making it rain skittles"

Is he paralyzed? I can`t tell because he sure moves his legs around a lot.

At one point he uses his left leg to help him get up after he falls.

Wasn`t using a bungee cord kinda cheating? I`m sure going down a huge ramp before hand would give him more of an advantage, maybe giving him enough speed and height to do a triple backflip instead.
