The death of Jackass's Ryan Dunn is a sad and eye opening tragedy. My husband and my brothers bonded over many episodes of Jackass back in the day. A lot of people saw them as idiots, some found them incredibly relatable, and many believed those guys to be invincible. Truth is, those guys were basically hilarious stuntmen who were fortunate enough to grow up with one another. What you perceived them to be was your own opinion. They may have started as somewhat amateurs but along the way they built themselves up to something great.
It is an unfortunate way for someone to pass, may he rest in peace.
