15 worst crahes

Saw this over at NSMB. I don't know about you, but I think the one where the dude nails his neck on the tranny to the drop (I think 11?) should be #1. That one makes me shiver.

No sir, he was screaming too much. Plus he appeared to be squirming about.

The one where the guy fell off the cliff i saw the fuller youtube version and he yells out at the end which is good to know.

Could have easily been killed.

#2: "Can you walk?" wow.. if I am doing something where failure results in this question being asked first then I probably shouldn't be doing it.

I'd agree he was thrashing too much. Had he broke his neck it would have been lights out.

Note, in most cases the critical failure was failure to commit (except the girl who forgot to jump). This applies to small scale stuff especially. Lay of the brakes, they only make it harder to steer.
