Remember back in the day when daredevil Evel Knievel used to jump things with his motorcycle.His first major stunt was jumping a 20-foot box filled with rattlesnakes -- and thank goodness he made it. That would have hurt.As his feats of amazement increased, Evel failed to jump 12 cars and a cargo van in Montana, which landed him in the hospital. But he rebounded nicely to successfully jump his motorcycle over 16 cars in California.Evel’s most publicized endeavor was his failed attempt to jump the fountain at Caesars Palace.
