I'm not referring to your common skateboarder at a skateboard park, or sanctioned sporting events like the X Games. I'm talking about the people that jump off roofs, and do absurd jumps and such, most of the time with no helmets or any other protection. It's the Jackass Movie crowd.
The emergency rooms have to be littered with these "stuntmen" that have broken their limbs and cracked their skulls. It's just plain idiotic, and certainly will cause them health or quality of life issues later in life.
