Extreme sports almost met a man's extreme demise.

A mountain biker in Saint George, Utah came within a spoke or two of falling off a cliff and meeting his maker after he tried to do a wheelie onto a rock. The bike also nearly went tumbling a few hundred feet down to its destruction, but both survived.

What's more amazing than the fact the man was thisclose to having his body parts jumbled up like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle is how he reacted. He's laughing. Laughing! He could be speechless, he could be shivering from shock, he could be on his knees saying a few dozen prayers, but no, he elects to giggle.

If you cheat death like this, maybe it's best to keep the chuckling to a minimum because the Grim Reaper isn't exactly known for his sense of humor.
