Evel Knievel was one of the stranger pop culture phenomena to come out of the 1970s (and this is the decade in which leisure suits were in style and talking on a CB radio was cool). Basically he was this guy dressed in a Captain America meets Vegas-era Elvis costume who would jump over stuff on a motorcycle. Yup, kind of like Fonzie in that one episode of Happy Days, but with a disco fashion sense. The thing I always remembered hearing about Evel Knievel was that he had supposedly broken every bone in his body at some point or other. Knievel’s Wikipedia page says it wasn’t EVERY bone, but that “every bone in his body” thing seemed like the first thing that came up whenever he was discussed, like it was a badge of honor. Like I said, it was a weird time.
