Jackass 4? Maybe they'll do a prank where they trick Bam into snorting Dunn's ashes.

How is he still alive?

Him stapling his nuts to his leg on Howard Stern was the greatest.

You got to hand it to them. They were a band of entertainers willing to suffer multiple serious injuries to make me chuckle.

Johnny Knoxville looks like a 100 year old man these days.

I've always enjoyed his stories about doing cocaine with Lindsay Lohan.

Meh.
They topped themselves way early on and most of the rest was pretty tame stuff after it.

Steve-o drinks some old nasty bong water, and they test a bullet proof vest, that was already basiaclly at the ceiling of hollychit WTF are you doing to yourself?


Also my high school buddy, he got his nipple pieced with a saftey pin, and it was ripped out playing some tackle football. And the tough guy type he looked up to was there, so he just repieced himself on the spot, and amazingly didn't get an infection of any kind from it just a nasty scar. like one of those cool over the eye ones movie tough types get to have have, but right over his nip.

Ambivalence: How is he still alive?


I could be wrong, but if memory serves, when he was at rock bottom, Tony Hawk, who was in his social circle, asked to be left off of future correspondence about his habits.  Steve-O spent a while just going OFF on Tony Hawk in public before being overcome with enough humiliation and shame that he finally dedicated himself to getting sober.

He might tell multiple stories about his recovery and this is just one of them though.

Did the Jackass guys ever procreate? It would seem that all the testicular damage that they incurred would have preventing them from having kids. Ouch.

CSB:

I was an Admissions Host in college, leading tours around campus two or three times a week. My school, though D3, had a nationally competitive water polo program (southern California), so our outdoor pool facilities were top-notch, and the tour went right by them.

Sometime in 2006, I was giving a Saturday tour (had to do one a month), expecting there to be a water polo game as I guided my group past the pools. As we rounded the corner, I heard a cheer go up, but there was zero activity in the water. The bleachers, on the other hand, were packed full of people. I was going through my tour spiel, trying not to look confused as to why nobody was in the water.

Suddenly, a man scampered up the ladder to the high dive. The tour group was still a bit too far off to tell who it was, but the crowd in the stands went nuts. The guy on the high dive shouted something, then took off at a full sprint (or as much speed as he could muster) and hurled himself off the board, deliberately aiming his face/belly at the water.

After the loud THWOCK of the guy hitting the pool, a parent on my tour asked me what was going on. I was about to respond that I had no idea, until the belly-flopper hoisted himself out of the pool, and I saw the unmistakeable back tattoo.

Turns out, one of our water polo guys knew Ryan Dunn and had invited him to the game that morning. Ryan brought along Steve-O, and the two of them were having a pre-game belly flop contest. I later found out that though the coaches were on board with the last-minute poolside cameos, administration was none too pleased.

And that's how I had to explain to a handful of prospective parents who Steve-O was and why he was famous. Easily my favorite tour I've ever given.

Per IMDB, Johnny's got three kids, Bam has one, none listed for either Steve-O or Dunn.

They're going to be having some interesting conversations over the years, trying to caution their kids against dangerous behavior.

By early stuff do you mean the CKY  videos and Big Brother videos ?

I think it was #2 from Big Brother that had Knoxville shoot himself while wearing a bullet proof vest.

Russion Roulette style, he just keeps clicking through rounds while the people off camera ask him to stop after the first click but he keeps clicking until Bam.

"You did, Dad." *pulls up YouTube video*

Jackass was and still is EPIC!  It was before or AT the time of the dude bro sensation.  Every drunk college guy wanted to try all those stunts!  Fortunately they made a ton off that show...

If they're willing to go to classes to learn how to do stunts to minimize getting hurt, I don't see them having a problem with it.

Knoxville was trying to be an actor and stuntman before he hooked up with Big Brother and Steve-O trained with the circus. That's why they handled the bulk of the most dangerous Jackass stunts.

Steve O expected to be dead by like 35 so yeah thats why he did all this stuff.... he had a death wish.

CKY brings back some...fuzzy and blurry memories.

Lots of credit to Steve-o for getting himself out of the dark places that he was in. Dude may not be the sharpest bulb in the toolbox, but he has been through a lot of shiat that should have killed him, several times over.

Watching him make an omelette with Gordon Ramsey was hilarious, stupid, but hilarious.


His episode of Hot Ones was a very interesting watch also.

/ Steve-O that is
/ Gordon Ramsey also did an episode of Hot Ones that was possibly even more entertaining

I recently got in to the hot ones stuff. Ramsey was fun just because how he reacts to it and the remedies he brought. Alton Brown was also pretty good. Especially when he grabs a bottle and takes a nip off of it so he could taste the peppers in it better lol.


My favorite part of the Ramsey one is when he took a break to use the bathroom but they neglected to warn him to wash his hands thoroughly before taking a leak.

Brown's bit about being so disgusted by what other people are buying that he'll sometimes just leave sticks with me every time I shop.

I remember he talked about this. He said he did an interview where basically through the interview he was taking bong hits and wippits. He said that a little while later he was sober for a few days and watched the interview before it was supposed to be aired. Once he saw that interview in a slightly clear state of mind, he decided that was it and decided to get sober.

Fun fact. He is a professionally trained clown and once worked as a clown for Ringling Bros.

Yuperoo. I got to know some of the BB guys a little bit because I was working for the same publishing company that BB was under. They were all pretty nuts in a really interesting way--they were incredibly serious, studious and literary about the incredibly insane shiat they were doing. Really nice guys too.

I am guessing you have seen the Dumb doc, but if not, check it out, it's gold.
