    I made it through without laughing. What do I win?

    Plenty of idiot highlights, though.

    I laughed far too hard at the clip of the guy straddling two cars with the fireworks underneath him.

    Hopefully karma will make an exception to that.

    My favorite part is when some jerk trying to push a dog into a cold river fell in himself. But I'm with gomer. I don't like to see people get hurt.

    This should be retitled Darwin Award contenders -- the stupidity of some of those stunts is mind boggling.

    Sometimes "amusing," unforeseeable accidents just happen. But man, how many clips on that video are of people intentionally doing idiotic stuff?

    It almost makes road cycling seem sensible in comparison.

    Sensible? Let's not get carried away.

    When people get hurt while doing something that would normally be safe, I usually don't find that amusing. On the other hand, if it fits in to the category of "WTF were you thinking?" (like the fireworks guy) then I don't feel too bad for the cretins.

    As far as the guy who slipped while trying to nudge the dog in to the water, I have no sympathy whatsoever.

    Oh come on almost everything involving a teen age dude was funny! That'll teach him! I especially liked the guy that thought he could mess with the horse's butt.....

    I found the forklift accident that brought down the entire warehouse and the building demolition rollover totally amazing!

    You apparently have not seen the video. I thought BF had a patent on idiocy, but the guys in the vid take the concept to a whole new level.

    I must admit, I think I did laugh at the guy with the fireworks. Though I can't imagine how that didn't end in serious injury.

    I saw much stupidity and some simple misfortune, very little of which was amusing.

    You sir are obviously not a mountain biker. Pretty much when my friends and I go out and someone does something stupid - it's laughs all around, including the injuried party.

    Sometimes you have to laugh, otherwise you go crazy!
