I'm just impressed that he was able to hold the road after landing. Normally, a stunt like that ALWAYS end with the classic battle: Tree or Pole vs. Car.

Trees and poles are undefeated as of right now.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

Yup. I call that entire incident a failed attempt to cleanse the gene pool.

Thankfully the Grim Reaper was asleep on the job or my guardian angels were working major overtime when I was younger. I had a set of railroad tracks that had a steep overpass and I used to jump those at 60 and get 6 ft of air in a '80 Honda Accord. I must say that car took a beating and still survived.

I think my friend has an old Polaroid of me in the air. My dad saw it and well let's just say . . . . . . and I didn't sit for weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You start that whole process by starting at a slower speed, bumping it up 5 mph a crack, until it gets hairy.... The bumper scraper was pushing it for sure.
