Default Re: RIP Evil Knievel

From Wiki:

"Knievel dropped out of high school after his sophomore year and got a job with the Anaconda Mining Company as a diamond drill operator in the copper mines. He was promoted to surface duty where his job was driving a large earth mover. Knievel was fired when he made the earth mover pop a motorcycle-type wheelie and drove it into Butte's main power line, leaving the city without electricity for several hours."

Edit: Anyone else have that toy stunt cycle with the serrated plastic rip cord?...good times.
