Field guides to the many injuries of Evel Knievel
  • Interesting.
  • In 1999 he received a liver transplant, after his old liver had been destroyed by alcoholism and hepatitis C, yet he still drinks. He's also suffered a bleeding esophagus, a stroke, arthritis, diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis. ... Evel "now stays close to an oxygen tank, ingests 50 pills a day and sucks on lollipops that deliver fentanyl, a heavy-duty painkiller." AND the morphine pump. Well. I feel better.
  • I'd feel better if I had a morphine pump. Pretty good, in fact.
  • Every kid - heck, every human - who's about to do some damn fool thing because it looks fun should have to read all those!
