It's far more controlled than it may look. These shoots are pretty high budget

Yea, but not from doing a stunt. He was riding his snowmobile up a slope and it rolled over and crushed him. The stunts were incredibly controlled and he had more control of his car while doing these stunts than you do of your own body while walking down the street.

You will be dead too, but What you are doing… isn’t worth dying for. 🤷‍♀️ you are correct, he’s a legend. You however, aren’t. I hope you got the attention you were looking for.

He died riding a snowmobile with his family, not doing stunts. He died in front of his wife and daughter doing something fun. Grow up.

Not being knowledgeable on a subject means that if you don't temper your statements as being inquisitive, you will be effectively being unnecessarily assholeish while saying anything.

That is to say "I am not knowledgeable" means maybe you shouldn't talk out your ass.

He’s telling you to grow up because you resort to assumptions and name calling when people refute you

Been ripping in a Hoonigan lately in FH5. Dude was so awesome. Watched a video of him building an 80s Audi with his daughter the other day.

Ken had some of the most insane car control I’ve ever seen. RIP

I mean captains control the crew and the boat somewhat. That sea be a harsh mistress. Just like ice and other drivers you just never know.

You probably would try to joke about Steve Irwin sticking to crocodiles not stingrays. Factual but not really funny.

Depends on the weather clothing and situation. Not all snow is uniform even though it is just cold water. Living in extreme temperatures can be hazardous even collecting fire wood you could die easily.

Kenny Block never heard of him or if I did it was in passing.

Think it would have been funnier if you focused on insane.

"Insane snow mobile had a mind of it's and killed the great Kenny B for trying to control it. RIP"

Or

"Ken could have stuck with slow mobiles and lived longer. RIP"

Or

Something combining wild horses and insanity.

Your quip is short and to the point but is it funny? Meh.

Be the Hero we need not the zero we have seen everywhere. Gallows humor has to have more thought than that....

RIP Ken. It was a shitty weekend in park city, in addition to his snowmobile accident, two people died at park city resort. One older man’s body was found, bad crash or heart attack, and an employee was riding a lift when a tree fell on it and he fell 50+ feet to the gully below.

I can’t believe the level of toxicity some people are willing to stoop to. Ken Block was one of the most genuine and positive individuals around. I’ve never heard a bad word spoken about him from anyone except from some of the people in this comment section. If you can’t respect the dead, at least have a little respect for yourselves. Absolutely despicable.

Ken Block was my hero. 2023 did not start the way I wished it had.
