Evel Knievel Appreciation Thread

Evel

He's dead. And I think the best way to honor his memory is through a "Chuck Norris Facts"-style display of hyperbole. Por ejemplo:

  • Evel Knievel is German for "unkillable sex machine."
  • The U.S. interstate system was created by Evel Knievel burning rubber as he prepared to jump the Atlantic Ocean.

Also: This is not a crime-related story. It is, however, Friday afternoon. How about you help yourself to a beer and calm down?
