Interesting that no recent speed skiing meets have achieved better
results? Formerly the record was creeping up yearly. Maybe FIS has
stopped holding speed skiing meets?




Interesting to note that the figure on his trophy (2:25) is a man on
skis.

You encourage children to snowboard? I shall have to report you to
the proper authorities for child abuse.

More threats.


Threats? What threat? You really are losing it Horvie.



The, "or else," is a clear threat.

Horvie, Horvie. You ain't even got the nads to directly threaten me,
which is what you really want to do. So you do this pussy suicide
crap, which as we both know, is a clear threat. Skirt the law like
the pussy you are.


When I come for you, you'll never see me. So do yourself a favor and
do the job yourself.

Just think, all your enemies will just disappear. All your problems
will be gone.

But that's at zero airspeed.

They have 6 events coming up in 2011


At the risk of making a ski related post, I ran into that event
several years ago at Sun Peaks.
You freaks would have loved the lycra. Otherwise, a very boring
spectator sport. Like most skiing events. Wait, wait, swoosh, wait.

That's a great question, and the pussies here have done a lot of
research. Several of them claim to have seen me on the slopes.
Of course, none of them had the nads to say hello.
Considering both snowboarders and skiers were involved, I wonder who
was faster in fleeing from the scene? The boarders or the skiers?
Another question: does the wearing of ski diapers slow them down?
Does urine ruin a wax job?
Enquiring minds want to know.

Local area Mountain High instructors don't even mention the
inadvisability of doing things like that to the students. Just
one more reason it's a crappy hill.


My opinion of Mt. High is that it is not worth wasting a good skiing
day, but that it might be ok for a weekday. Have you ever been there
on a weekday?


ONLY on weekdays and only when there's some kind of discount and
there's some other good reason for going there. Last time was in Feb
or March when I gave the grandspawn snowboard lessons for their
birthdays. Closer and cheaper than Big Bear and hey, they're only

From what you said above, not a very good place for a snowboard lesson.

Iron balls and anger of ice? Babelfish is a bit off sometimes.

this is what I found, just ignore the music and most of
the video, just look of trying to keep upright, it looks like he is a
nanosecond away from going to ER.

Scary, but the arm-flapping remindes me of Itchy.


Except he has good reason to flap.
