First appearing on The John Byner Comedy Hour before becoming a regular character on shows like Van Dyke and Company, Bizarre, and his own show, Super Dave Osborne was an Evel Knievel parody played by longtime comedian Bob Einstein.
Dave always set himself up for incredibly dangerous stunts (which were masterminded by his incomprehensible sidekick, Fuji Hakayito), only to get horribly maimed in the process. It was very obviously a dummy getting hurt, and we all loved his hilarious schtick, so here's 15 great moments from the living legend's career.
His started off innocently enough...
Then there was the time where he got wrecked by a wrecking ball
Or when he was a living archery target
Let's never forget his car wreck stunt
Or when his "roller-skis" went horribly wrong

Playing piano on the back of a truck seemed like such a great idea at the time...
His stunt school went about as well as could be expected...
Then there's his bungee jump
The crazy bastard actually went up against Mr. T!

Heavy Metal is one of the most popular genres of music in the world. This was especially big in the 1980s when it was common to see kids with long hair and black t-shirts listening to heavy metal. This was also the era when a lot of heavy metals lived like true rockstars with extravagant lifestyles. These acts would tour all over the world playing to packed stadiums.The heavy metal lifestyle was known to be that of decadence with a lot of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll.

Gaming hotspots really took off in the 1950s and 60s in places like Reno, Monte Carlo, and, of course, Las Vegas. Nevada had an edge because, in 1931, following the Great Depression and construction of the Hoover Dam, Nevada became the only state in the US where casino gambling was legal.Casinos and Vegas are practically synonymous now and the casino culture we know from film and popular culture was invented on that strip in the desert. But what were casinos like 50 years ago?A Trip Down Memory LaneWhen you think of casinos, the Las Vegas Strip is usually
We all want to step back in time. There is a reason why products from the 50s, 60s, and 70s are considered classics. There are several different categories regarding the age of cars. Cars still in existence that were made between 1919 and 1930 are known as vintage cars, while antique cars are technically cars that are 45 years old or older. Cars actually become classic, by most standards, when they hit 20 years old, but that doesn't necessarily mean that a lot of us regard cars made in 2000 as classics! We still have an association between the classic
