A spectacular crash by Jeremy Foley and his co-driver during the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2012. Amazingly (and a credit to the construction of the vehicle), neither of those inside were critically injured.
The Mistubishi Evo 8 was ripped to shreds as it flipped continuously down the steep hill. Both men were airlifted to a local hospital and have since been released.Via Nothing To Do With Arbroath. Post title quote by W.C. Fields in The Bank Dick, which also included this memorable exchange:
Egbert: Beer! Fishing in the stream that runs under the aboreal dell. A man comes up from the bar, dumps $3,500 in your lap for every nickel invested. Says to you, 'Sign here on the dotted line.' And then disappears in the weaving fields of alfalfa.To convince him and speaking with the voice of experience, Sousè relates the story of his Uncle Effingham Hoofnagle, who was also faced with a decision and took a chance, acting without hesitation.
Og: Gosh! Do you think he was telling the truth?
Egbert: You don't think a man would resort to terra-diddle, do you? Why, he sounded like a child at the very thought of disposing of these shares. How does the bank make its money?
Og: By investing.
Egbert: That's the point. You don't want to work all your life. Take a chance. Take it while you're young.
Egbert: My uncle, a balloon ascensionist, Effingham Hoofnagle, took a chance. He was three miles and a half up in the air. He jumped out of the basket of the balloon and took a chance of landing on a load of hay.
Og: Golly! Did he make it?Egbert: Uh, no...He didn't. Had he been a younger man, he probably would have made it. That's the point. Don't wait too long in life.
