James May weighs in on the impact of Richard Hammond's jet car crash, pointing out that the boy lives for danger and claiming that he once managed to talk the Hamster and a group of United States Marines out of a bar brawl. According to Captain Slow: "In Hammond's ideal world, all the pub furniture in Britain would be made from balsa wood and all the windows from boiled sugar, so we could all have a big brawl in the evening without doing any serious damage." Which is probably why he's alive right now and we're not. Oh. Wait. Crap.
