The world is going to be a sadder place without Evel Knievel in it.

Not much longer, I’m sure, until the Wikipedia folk lock the above page. Here’s the current section I linked to above – your mileage may vary, of course, what with Wikipedia being in a constant state of quantum flux:

Knievel died on November 30, 2007, aged 69. He had been ill for years, suffering from hepatitis C, as well as diabetes and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

Conspiracy?:Eyewitnesses reported seeing Evel accept a dare from Chuck Norris. He died instantly from the blunt force of a roundhouse kick to the head.

We all deal with grief in our own ways, I suppose. It’s always a sad day when a daredevil dies.
