I've heard of this guy. He was a gambler who bet he could survive the jump
and lived to collect. It's possible that this story be a myth. I'm not
I have a brother named Steve who is always being asked to jump off of
bridges. So far he's resisted the temptation. Glad I don't have HIS name!
Jumping Steve Brodie is no relative of mine but he may be related to the

I also am not related to Einstein, Freud or Beethoven. In fact there's
lots of folks out there I'm not related to, unless you want to go back a few
