    I read an interesting article a few months back comparing Logan Paul to the Jackass guys and why people enjoy the Jackass pranks more than LP's.

    Essentially, it boiled down to the fact that the Jackass guys are the butt of the joke. Whether its the giant hand slap, the jet engine, or dicking around the city, they are the ones being laughed at, and aren't targeting anyone.

    And, if they did target someone (i.e. bull in a China shop), then the 'mark' is heavily compensated and/or in on the joke.

    Logan Paul is just a garbage person who was somehow dating Chloe Bennet.

    Edit: found the article:

    Every time I see that show/group mentioned now I'm reminded that they drug Steve-o to rehab and he's been clean for a few years now and he's so grateful. It's a nice story of friends doing the right thing instead of enabling a problem.

    It was interesting to read/hear Johnny Knoxville talk about how he absolutely knew he had to quit doing his own stunts when he returned home from a day of shooting Action Point , sneezed, and his eye ball plopped out of his socket.

    And ya know what, I'm willing to agree with him.

    dude had already gone harder than was reasonable, or wise

    like (spoiled for a really powerfully uncomfortable injury)
    one time he injured his penis so bad he had to flush out his bladder with a catheter twice a day for three years

    that really should have been the wake-up call for him

    johnny will do anything for a laugh, to the point that it is dangerous, and it's honestly amazing that he hasn't died yet

    I hope he retires from stunts, he's more than earned it

    I used to direct a local news talk show and we would always get comedians who were performing at the Funny Bone comedy club on to promote their show.

    We had Steve-O on numerous times and he was always a really nice professional guy. He really has embraced sobriety and was always willing to do something dumb and funny to make people laugh, but was also perfectly happy just hanging out and talking about whatever.

    He was by far one of the nicer people they sent us.

    I used to get prank calls all the time at Blockbuster, asking me to look up porn and stuff. The thing is, they get very annoyed if you actually look up everything you're asked and don't react at all, and just give cheerful customer service like any normal call. Every interaction I had always ended with them getting bored and hanging up on me, while I enjoyed the break in routine quite a bit.

    when I worked at Gamestop I occasionally got kids trying to prank call me

    the thing is though, kids are fuckin' stupid and have no chill, so their only joke was to call and ask for a game they were certain didn't exist, but which actually did:

    "uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh can you tell me *stifled laughter* if uhhh you have Halo 4"

    "no, that's not out until November."

    "uhhhhhhhhh um how about uhhh Halo 5"

    "no, they haven't announced it yet."

    "uhhh...yeah. right. okay, bye."

    Yeah, we had some dude who would call all the branches asking female librarians to look up books about sexual spanking. They'd do some research, make a couple of recommendations, offer to ILL some stuff we didn't own. This was apparently very frustrating for him, and the general consensus was that we were really harshing some creep's humiliation fetish.

    I loved getting prank calls at gamestop because literally no one in the world could out deadpan me at the time

    Plus everyone at my store hated their jobs and there were rarely any customers in the store, so we would always match the vulgarity of the call and then one up it. It wasn't uncommon to hear something like "oh yeah? And how big exactly is your dick?" and just nod at the coworker on the phone
