One less idiot out there. Yes, thats a cold statement, but, stupid will get you killed.
2002-11-22 02:55:37 PM  
Cheers to jackass for thinning the herd
2002-11-22 02:56:01 PM  
This whole story sounds like any Friday or Saturday night in my hometown. Watch this, dude!
2002-11-22 02:56:07 PM  
think his parents will sue MTV? or at the very least attempt to?

The Darwin Awards are going to be much longer this year.

Of course, Jackass movie or not, there are few reasons better to snuff it than living in Ohio.

This is how my mypeepeefelloff.

This isn't evolution. It's obviously inteliigent design.

God obviously needs some chairs in heaven set on fire.

With hairspray.
2002-11-22 02:59:02 PM  
Y'all are right.
It WASN'T in 'Jackass: The Movie' but it WAS in a movie recently [in the past year] but i'll be damned if I can remember which one...
2002-11-22 02:59:26 PM  
ahhh, Chlorination of the gene pool....
2002-11-22 02:59:36 PM

Probably-otherwise they may have to face the fact that they raised a moron.
2002-11-22 03:01:30 PM  
Oh darn.

/dripping with sarcasm
2002-11-22 03:02:21 PM  
Idiots from hick towns have been killing themselves for a long, long time. There's no reason to think they'd stop just b/c Jackass decided to popuralize the idea.
2002-11-22 03:02:21 PM  
"local jackass, dies from jackass stunt"

[image from too old to be available]

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! The gene pool in general thanks you, too.
2002-11-22 03:02:21 PM  
I hope they at least had the brains to video tape it...

"America's Stupidest JackAsses" - coming soon on DVD
2002-11-22 03:03:31 PM  
Jackass??! Not likely. More like Dumbass! There's a difference.
2002-11-22 03:04:13 PM  
funny! With a capital f !
2002-11-22 03:04:16 PM  
Stupid farker. Glad he's dead.

Calling this guy an idiot is overstating the obvious. I would call him a redard but I would be offending "Corkys" everywhere. "It wasn't me mumma, Becka did it. Becka pushed him from the truck."

I'm willing to bet that if his parents were to read about this in the newspaper before they were told of their sons death, they would have assumed their son was connected somehow.

He looked like a bright kid, no seriously he did. shiat can't do it with a straight face even if I tried.

Move on people , nothing to see here. You look you lose.

Johnny Knoxville is going to get a lot of negative publicity

In certain fields "publicity" is good, regardless of its positivity or negativity.

This new trend of blaming Jackass every time someone does something imbecilic is starting to wear thin.

Next up:

Following cues from the movie Jackass, President Bush invaded Iraq today, killing thousands of innocent civilians.

It's all fun and games until someone dies from a head injury after setting fire to a lawn chair with hairspray and falling out of a moving pickup truck.
2002-11-22 03:11:58 PM  
Hahahah, what a dumbass...
2002-11-22 03:11:59 PM  
Fark him, the jackass....what we really need is many more movies and TV shows like Jackass. This way, all the idiots can imitate what they see and the gene pool will be better off. Then we can all enjoy a nice cold Dr., wait, screw Dr. Pepper - I won't drink any until they change the name to "Dr. Farker". Ya.
2002-11-22 03:12:49 PM  
Haw-Haaw! </Nelson Muntz>
If I could get footage of idiots like him killing himself, put it on video and DVD, I'd make some goooooooooood money!

"It's funny because it's not me"
2002-11-22 03:14:06 PM  
I love it.
2002-11-22 03:19:38 PM  
must be sad to kick the bucket (or kiss the pavement, in tihs case) and all people can say about you is:

What a dumbass.

your family and closest friends simply have no argument to the contrary.
2002-11-22 03:19:46 PM  
Rest in peace, dumbass.
2002-11-22 03:19:52 PM  
All those damn Wooster kids are stupid. Oh, and Jackass is gay.
2002-11-22 03:21:10 PM  
I don't even understand WTF happened. The article starts talking about "the truck" as if a truck were described earlier in the story. Then there's chairs on fire with hairspray, people hitting their heads, I don't know WTF is up, but that's one farked up article.

Damn, I need some Dr. Pepper to calm down.
2002-11-22 03:21:23 PM  
skinink, you are so right. God Bless Natural Selection.
2002-11-22 03:21:38 PM  
Hmmmm...I only live an hour or so away from Wooster. I did not hear anything about this incident. It's pretty sad...Just a kid being a kid.
2002-11-22 03:26:23 PM  

It's pronounced"Wuhster" (where the cows say,"Muh").
2002-11-22 03:26:50 PM  
i'm confused about the whole stunt thing. i can see trying to jump over a speeding car, but setting a chair on fire and then throwing it off a truck?
2002-11-22 03:27:45 PM  
trailerparkprincess...Hardly a kid just being a kid. He was a dumb kid being a dumb kid doing dumb things. We were all kids at one time and I know my friends and I never did anything quite this stupid. We did stupid things, but never things that would get us killed, arrested maybe, but never killed.
2002-11-22 03:30:17 PM  
That article makes no sense whatsoever. Blame the manufacturer of the pickup truck before you blame Jackass. It sounds like really bad luck, not stupidity.
"Jackass the movie kills movie audience when tornado hits theatre."
2002-11-22 03:30:55 PM  
am i the only one that hates the gratuitous comma in the headline?
2002-11-22 03:32:35 PM  
Well, I might no be the first one to say "hahahah," and I might not be the first to summon Darwin... BUT _ I get to be the first to say 'Asshat.' So I'm really cool!
2002-11-22 03:33:06 PM  
Its been said but i must say it again. Darwin
2002-11-22 03:33:29 PM  
you're right puckhead. Thinkin it's more a dumbass stunt than a jackass stunt. What kind of idiot jumps outta the back of a moving pickup without a parachute. Geez
2002-11-22 03:33:42 PM  
One jackass down, six billion to go.
2002-11-22 03:34:01 PM  
Just a kid being a kid.

no. more like just a kid being an idiot. and by the sound of it, your time in the gene pool will probably only be for a few more laps.
2002-11-22 03:34:37 PM  
The only people I feel sorry for are his parents, and his siblings. He was someones son after all.
Granted, it was an incredibly stupid thing to do....but that's what being young is about.
For any of us over 30, anyone under 30 is teetering on the edge of extinction...from stupidity. We all do dumb things. It just happened to catch up with this kid.

Must be nice for all lot of the farkers posting here, to live in nice glass houses, and not have any rocks handy!

18 year old freshman from Tiffin. FRESHMAN, people. 18 years old. Tiffin is a highschool.
2002-11-22 03:38:14 PM  
Well, if I am reading this poorly written piece correctly, the truck was stopped and he fell out (on his head) when it moved forward unexpectedly. Am I right here? If so, his only fault was being in the back of a truck and falling when the asshat driver lurched it forward.

Does it really matter what he was doing in the truck? He was a moron for setting a chair on fire with hairspray, not falling out of a truck.

I could be wrong, but that's not likely.
2002-11-22 03:38:40 PM  
Hey, anyone remember what they called these stunts before 'jackass' was around? BECAUSE JACKASS ISN'T THE SOURCE FOR THESE MOTHERFARKERS!

ahhh... much better... if a kid kills someone with a gun, it's a game's fault.. If a kid killed himself due to some 'frat' stunt, then it's jackass's fault...

people: I know.. let's brame the media... Media: dooon't braaame me!
