I'll take the car accident thank you very much. The driver walked away with only some bruising according to the news report.

not sure if you can accurately measure the impact on the skate incident, but i've heard around 50g to near 75g at initial impact for the car crash.  not to mention the rolling and tumbling afterward.  the driver was out of at least the next race, if not the next two (i don't remember for sure)due to that crash.

seems the skate dude up and walked away too.  I didn't hear what, if any, injuries he sustained.

I believe 3 fractured ribs, broken ankle, contusions, major cuncussion, and a bunch of bruising.

I've seen that video be replayed about a hundred times at this point and it still makes me cringe. The fact that he dropped almost 5 stories straight down and walked away is amazing.

Go jump off a 40 foot drop and land on your side, then restrain yourself into a vehicle that's essentially made for high speed crashes and protecting the driver and tell us what you think is worse?

I've never been in either situation, and I don't really care to find out.  they both look pretty sucky if you ask me.

It is mind boggling to me that jake got up and walked away after that fall.  You can definitely tell that he knows how to fall.  Most people would just hit legs first.  This guy turned his body just before impact.  CRAZY

He had time to shit his pants in the air :-X

yellowcar has been busy----with the markets of the World---no time to email----

What everyone failed to see about the guy on the skate board is the level of skill  that is required to
ever attempt the jump.   Talk about No Fear----or should I say, some Great Talent---


I feel the same is true for the professional motorcycle racers----they are at a totally at a different level----

All requires some major God Given Talent

I'm really getting tired of the BS on this web site.  I start a very good topic and have other ASS Holes
talk about unrelated shit. 

I thought this BS had stopped---unfortunate it still continues-----

Maybe the testers own this web site-----good luck to all.
