Well, at least it wasn't from a stunt injury and there was at least a warning before it happened.

Yeah I didn't mean to trivialize his death, I looked up to him as a kid. I remember riding my BMX bike over jumps, pretending I was him.

Bad karma though so I declined

I remember as a kid I borrowed my mates BMX and I was going to ride it down to his house. Now on the way there is a 'ginnal' (I think that's how it's spelt) which is basically an area between two houses. Now the ginnal is sloped so I picked up some F'in AWESOME speed, near the bottom I hit the brakes... *click click* they didn't work! even scarier is that at the bottom of the ginnal was a sh*tload of trees that I was heading straight for at full-pelt! So I'm dragging my feet along the floor to try and brake and I get to the trees LEFTRIGHTLEFTRIGHTRIGHTLEFT with the handlebars... somehow I managed to miss every tree and I went into a cold sweat, I looked down and my toes were hanging out of my shoes from where I'd torn them trying to brake, lol. So there I was... pale white, covered in sweat with my toes hanging out of the front of my shoes and a healthy skidmark in the back of my pants.

Evil Knieval had nothing on me

Wouldn't that be great if it was Paris Hilton?
Perhaps she gets trampled and violenty and repeatedly sodomized by elephants while she is wearing clown make up and a ball gag. The day that happens, drinks are on me.
