Crazy Bastards you only find out about after they die

    I've seen this photo before, I'm pretty sure it's been posted in the p0rn Thread, & I even recall it was put forward that it was a mock up.

    Well, it isn't, & the fellow that made it, E.J. Potter "The Michigan Madman" has passed away.

    You can read about here: http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2012/05/03/e-j-potter-the-michigan-madman-r-i-p/

    It's a great read, I especially like the part where they couldn't find a clutch that worked, so they just did away with it altogether!

    I think people are great, & it's sad that the majority of us only find out about them when they die.

    But the fact that they lived & were awesome, is awesome. :)

    Any others? Maybe even some that are still alive so we can show some respect now!
