Haha, I'm not sure which pic you can even see that in, but on my trip to canoe the Spatsizi/Stikine, I made the genius move of strapping the bike with the kickstand down. The road was ridiculously rough and the bike kept falling down because my buddy's trailer didn't have any good place to strap to (so the straps would break from rubbing.)
So yeah, I learned my lesson.
But anyways, I was too cheap to get a new kickstand, so I asked a friend to see what he could do. He cut out the bent part, stuck a bolt in the two pieces of tube, welded it, and--VIOLA--good as new
