Some say Evel Knievel was the bastard love child of Steve McQueen and Wernher von Braun.

Snake River Canyon? Is that what they're calling my ex-wife's vagina these days?

MacArthur hated him, but that hardly makes him a fraud.

There are rockets from private parties that shoot people into space now. Shooting a person over a river with a rocket seems like small potatoes

It was small potatoes back then, also.  The rocket actually made it across the canyon, but the parachute deployed prematurely, and the prevailing wind blew it back.  Were it not for that minor technical failure, the jump would have been a success.

Remember, you pull the parachute rip cord AFTER you've achieved peak altitude.  Not at take-off.

used to live in twin falls, idaho.  one of my co-workers lived very close to where the original ramp was.  the dirt packing part of the ramp is still there.  we went there and had a beer once or twice...pretty cool.

Was it once or twice?
Well did you have one, or two?

Step out of the car please, sir.
