“A lot of people think I’m nuts.”

Yes, that tends to happen when you’re nuts.

I tried going down a hill on my bike and I had no control on stopping because of how fast i was going. I wasn't even going that fast and I crashed in a ditch. Not fun times.

Mark he put that big rock in there to make it less top heavy.
Cyn remember that people [i]lie[/i] on the internet
Rhcp how did he manage to get to 90 while sitting "inside" the cart without bailing like the jackass crew did when they went downhill carting? also a car wont just run into someone while that person is going down a straight street. I know that if I saw someone flying down the street i would avoid them since i doubt they have any control. If you are just making that up please admit it and if not then sorry for your friends loss.

hey Johnathan how can he hear all that. he can probably read all of it, but hearing requires for someone to be talking.

"I'll just smuggle this shopping trolley out of the supermarket by putting it in the back of my car *whistles nonchalantly* . . . a lot of people think I'm nuts. . . I think I'll just ride my new trolley down a long and steep hill to the shoe shop . . . ah - it's slowing down . . .where did I park the car ? . . . how do I stop myself veering offcourse whilst riding a shopping trolley down a steep hill ? . . . my feet will make an excellent rudder !"

It's Vancouver, but the same argument holds.

hey, i added a caveat about skateboarding and rollerblading, and you gots to pick the ONE thing i said that potentially has brakes?

also, i just don't see a friggen shopping cart rolling at 90.

Thats probably a good idea. Going that fast with absolutely no pads or protection on busy steep city streets with traffic on a mechanism with no steering or brakes and is top-heavy and liable to flip at the slightest bump. Just to point out the obvious for those of you who didn't watch the video and skip right to the comment section to see what petty nonsensical irritants DYOG has cooked up for today.

its not the same thing as riding a bike down a kill. at least youcan stop the bike pretty quickly, it would take him far to long to stop the shoping cart.

I wonder how often he has to buy new shoes.

January 8th, 2009 at 7:18 pm cynnicysm says:

they estimated wrong. a shopping cart can't do 90 mph without some serious modifications. ever try to roll down a hill on a skateboard? even at 10 or 20 mph its difficult to steer. the first bump that guy hit in a shopping cart at like 20 mph, the little front wheels would spin around, the car would turn, and his dumb ass would fall over and out of the cart.

maybe the car was doing 90.

i'm just saying.

i kind of know someone who tried riding inside a shopping cart down a hill in san francisco and got hit by a car and broke every major bone in his body. they estimated that he was going about 90 mph when he got hit and according to my friend who knows him better, he is a vegetable now. he cant do anything

my opinion on natural selection:it's part of evolution and in evolution you have the need for different types of individuals (it's like with the beez and the ants) you got some explorers, leaders, shepards, workers, else would natural selection explain astronauts or priests or even gays?
This dude is just a crazy explorer...and who knows..maybe evolution shows him right..chicks dig it, he gets lots of children and we'll all be riding around with shopping carts in a few 1000 years...anyway I just wanted to post that I wish he looses his shoe on one of his next races.

January 8th, 2009 at 1:45 pm cynnicysm says:

i just don't equate this type of thing with "natural selection" how is this more risky than skateboarding or rollerblading or riding a bicycle down a big hill? people tend to not do things if they aren't confident that they can survive the event. unless they're trying to kill themselves, thats a whole different story.

this being "natural selection" to me seems like crossing a busy street is also helping the process. it appears as though anything that can potentially get you hurt or killed is "speeding up the process" and that seems wrong to me.

Back to the issue of natural selection... I agree, but I also think that this shopping cart thing beats the crane-pullups. For some reason it just seems like so much more fun to rush by people with a manic grin on your face before getting hit by a truck than just to drop from the sky and paint the pavement.

Hey, I think this guy has found a healthy way to deal with his crazy. He's speeding up the process of natural selection.

He may be nuts, but that doesn't mean he's riding a shopping cart downhill at reckless speeds.
