ok, since i know this would get locked anywhere else, i am asking you, the cooler senior dudes and chicas. i(along with some stupid friends)am going to amke a spinoff of jackass, wildboyz, and just throw in some plain stupid stuff, and stuff that won't hurt, and my friends won't let me test on them first. it is going t be safer than all of the mentioned shows/movies.
have any good suggestions, besides don't do it?
save up LOTS of money for hospital costs before you do anything?
still not the kind of advice you're after? sorry, that's all I've got for you. I've never been able to understand why someone woudl do something stupidly dangerous for no benefit - even stuntmen get paid, after training thie butts off (I should know, my cousin's a stuntman and worked on the LotR movies)

I'm going to simply beg you not to make the movie for the pure fact that somebody has to stop the vicious cycle of propagating stupidity in the media. I mean really, the very fact that watching a bunch of bored teenagers kick each other on trampolines is what passes for entertainment these days is a sad, discouraging thought. I personally think Jackass is the entertainment equivalent of drooling on yourself and watching moths fly into a bug-zapper and I plead with you not to feed any more of this mind numbing crud into the world.
As far as helpful advice I'd say at least bring a First Aid kit along and keep a phone handy so you can call 911.Even skateboard tricks and trampoilne-born stunts can result in some very nasty scars. I've broken my tailbone skateboarding, I can't begin to tell you how unpleasent that whole ordeal was.

No, on the contrary I believe we should do everything possible to promote this kind of mindless stupidity and encourage the performers to attempt even greater feats of idiocy for our amusement, then quietly sit back and let Nature take its course; worst case scenario is that we get to see future Darwin Award candidates humiliate themselves for mere mammon, and if we're really lucky evolution might step in and call out those annoying individuals who keep splashing around the shallow end of our common gene pool and peeing in the water. It's a win-win situation, really. :shifty:Originally Posted by Edicius
However, since I appear to be so unfortunate as to have been born with a chronically bleeding heart, I am going to second Edicius' suggestions of a First Aid Kit and a (charged!) cell phone. Furthermore, I would also recommend using proper protective gear for your stunts, such as a skateboard helmet as well as elbow and knee pads. Especially the helmet. I know a helmet looks uncool, but honestly, believe me when I say this, girls are not attracted to guys with brain damage. Unfortunately, a helmet doesn't protect against breaking your neck, so a first aid course with focus on neurological injuries might also be a good idea. In fact, you might as well call 911 in advance and have them set aside an ambulance in anticipation of your next call.
However, most of all I would recommend not being so stupid as to actually copy such shows as Jackass and Wildboyz. Wildboyz are people who put live poisonous scorpions down their pants, and the participants of Jackass are no longer part of the homo sapiens species by common vote. I believe the chimpanzees also refused to accept them, so at the moment they're apparently classified as a sort of mollusc. :rolleyes:

Rofl, go for it....
..as long as you don't mind the possibility of breaking several limbs in the process.
If you are going to do stuff like that try and avoid actually getting hit / hurt on yoru back, since the spine isn't made out of rubber.
NEVER, EVER risk using a trampoline, those things a sickingly lethal do something safer, like recieveing a hammer on your hand (I have felt the last one and it takes quite a whack to break a hand).
Seriously, jackass stopped being funny years ago.
Watch some dirty shanchez to see what real pain is.
What Edi said.
Do you really find people hurting themselves funny?

this is not going to be a hurting show. it is going to be cool stunts and acts that are fun to watch. i am a worry-wart when it comes to things like this, and we will not get hurt unless there is a freak accident. it is going to be interrupted by wheelies on dirtbikes and me flipping my go-kart. it has a full roll cage and safety belts and stuff, so we will be ok. and maybe some cool paintballing stuff too.
i asked for suggestions, and i am doing uit anyways, no matter what oyu say, unless the others chicken out. i need cool stuff to put on film. syuggestions people. also, there is no point in complaining, and it is for a good cause. i am donating the profits(or some) to a charity, because i am going to sell it for $1-2 a copy.
Instead of risking spilling your blood, please donate it instead. It fulfills your goal to give to charity, and saves lives too.
