Other questions for you:
-Who detemines if one is in control? The individual? The ski patrol? God?
-Who do ski areas and local sheriffs believe has the authority to determine who is in control?
-One place you're from Idaho, one place your from NH, and you complain about texans and I-70. Do you feel this is just? Should I start complaining about all the Bostonians clogging up I-89 on their way to Bretton Woods?
-Do you know that there are significantly less "rules" in the mountains surrounding the ski areas? In the west, these mountains are frequently on public lands and open to all. Doesn't it make sense to go to areas with fewer rules than to go to areas with more rules and complain about them?
-What does "tousch et li pude tu" mean?
-How many fibers are intertwined in a buscuit of shredded wheat?
Yes I stand behind the metaphor. The overall speed is irrelevant, what is important is the speed of the moving objects in relation to each other. The speed limit mentioned in the preceding post was to give the reader a visual example.
Since you have not refered to a trail map key as i recommended before i will explain the colors to you. Green = begginer, blue = intermediate, Black = expert the addition of black diamonds indicates increasing difficulty above single black diamond.
As for who determines whether you are out of control. I would say 1st the individual, 2nd the ski patrol if they can catch up to the individual and 3rd the almighty flying spaggetti monster may you all be blessed by his noodley appendages.
The man and the law always think they have the authority, fight the power. Don't let the man keep a brotha down!
I am from NH 21 years, lived in Colorado for 11 years then I got a job in Idaho.
And yes I will complain about texans on I 70. I think that the high temps negatively affects the development of thier brain. And nothing good ever came from texas. They move to CO and try to change river access to match what they are used to in texas and they can't drive in the snow.
Bostonians have made a science and an art out of aggresive driving. I would rather drive in boston than denver. Because Bostonians know how to drive. Though they have earned the nickname "Massholes" for a reason. They also clog up 93 going to waterville Valley etc. And yes go ahead and complain about them if you want. Its a free country.
It does make sense to go to mtns that allow for more freedom. That is one of the reasons I like A Basin and won't spend my money at Breckenridge or Vail. But I will still bash Breckenridge because it has to many rules and lines of speed facists. Might be because it caters to rich assholes who will sue over a broken fingernail. And I will also bash it because it is a free country. Save the Elk, feed the rich to the wolves!
Yo no habla frenchie. Does that mean "would you like rupture duck liver Pate with your freedom fries?"
I would have to guess that there are millions of intertwined fibers in a shedded wheat. Organized into hundreds of stands which are layered to make a shredded wheat.
A texan and an arizona rancher shares a fence along the border. THey are out checking the fence together and find a sheep with it's head stuck.
The Arizona rancher drops his pants and goes to town on the poor helpless sheep. When he finishes he says ok, your turn pardner.
The Texan then sticks his head in the fence.
Peace and love. cant we all just get along? It's all good bro and all that happy touchy feely peaceful crap. Merry kwanza. Happy Hooligan days.
Geez this has been fun..... hahahahahahahah
