210 from 70 days.... weak, how bout some extra points for earning your turns?
Also how bout some points (+or-) for frostbite?
That's a relief, I was beginning to think people were actually taking this seriously.
Don't worry, people on internet forums never fail to spot the humor in facetious or sarcastic posts.
Back to the Bob Peters question, I think being Bob Peters automatically gets you declared winner.
Thiago comes in a very respectable second for dragging himself from all the lovely distractions of Brazil to spend time in the mountains.
Are there any point deductions for being the resident Buzzkill on an internet ski forum? I think that's a big -100 right there.
By the way....bonus points should be AWARDED for flying to your destination, not deducted. For example, on February 18th, I flew from Fresno to Salt Lake City, for a Park City Day Trip.
Using my exclusive access to Airline Flight Release Data (I work for alleged airline), I can see that the CRJ200 I flew on, burns an average of 3,512 Pounds of Fuel on this flight including Taxi. At 6.8 lbs. per gallon for Jet fuel, it burns 516 Gallons of Fuel. It also holds 53 people including crew (who may go skiing on their overnight stay), so my share of the fuel burn is (516 / 53) = 9.75 Gallons of Fuel!!!
If I had driven that same route, according to Yahoo Maps, it's an 818 Mile trip...avoiding National Parks because hey...we're being clean here. At 23 MPG for your average car (some lower some higher...my Jeep Patriot gets 23), that would have taken 35 Gallons of Gas!!!
Now lets not forget you have to get back home, so the round trip will cost you 19.5 Gallons in a Jet, or 71 Gallons in a car.
The only way to make it effective is to have at least 3 people in the car, or drive a car that gets better than 84 mile per gallon.
So how many points is flying worth again? Because I flew to Aspen, Steamboat, Park City, Jackson Hole, and Spokane this year.
Your time machine broke in February, and you didn't get it fixed until January.
You only score 5 because you own a time machine.
Tired of the worn-out "How Many Days" threads? Not to worry. Mr. Prickly is on it, with a new wrinkle on an old theme.Here's the thing. A lot of people ski more than I do and, frankly, that pisses me off. So to feel better about the state of things, I've devised a super-scientific, geo-logarithmic system to create an "adjusted" number of ski days per season.And I've put a lot of effort into this: I came up with the idea this morning, biking to work, and thought about it for, like, 15 minutes.Here's the formula:-Take the "raw" number of days you skied last year -- for me, 56, a personal record. That's your "base score."-Now, add 50 points for every kid you have. 100 points for any kid under 3. Teenagers don't count.-Do you have a full-time job? Add 100 points. Do you work in the ski industry? Subtract 100 points.-Give yourself a point for every mile you have to travel for one day of skiing. I have to go about 60 miles, but since I have a house in the mountains, I ski two days on that 60 miles, so 30 points only.
-Speaking of which. That house in the mountains? Costs you 50 points. Live there full-time? Lose 100.
-Travel to the hill by public transportation or car-pooling? Good for you, Jack, you're putting in an effort, and helping the environment. Give yourself, I dunno, 20 points.-Give yourself 50 points if you're over 40 or under 20. Just 'cause.-Have you ever had a "career-threatening injury"? Well done on the comeback. Give yourself 25 points for each.-Do you have a spouse? Knock yourself out, that's 50 points. Does he/she ski? Then it's zero points.-Do you have a non-skiing significant other (non-spouse)? You lose 100 points, 'cause that's just stupid.My "adjusted" score for last season on this basis comes out at 411: Wow, I skied a lot!So, how do other Bears do on this basis? What should be added, changed for the scoring system?
Oh No, I am left with 76........I'm sooooo lame
My score is also low. I guess I either need to ski a lot more or move away from the ski hill and ski less to score better as a skier.
So I start with 145 days of unadjusted skiing.
No kids or any of that, so I'm still at 145.
I have a "sort-of" full time job, so I add a hundred, but I also have a "part-time" job in the ski industry, so I guess I just subtract that 100, so I'm still at 145.
I guess I live at my "house in the mountains" so I would have to subtract that 100, but I take public transport a lot of the time, so I'm going to subtract 80 instead. That drops me back to 65.
I'm definitely over 40, so I get to add 50, bringing me up to 115.
Does a blown acl count as a career-threatening injury? It didn't seem like it at the time and certainly doesn't seem like it now, 20 years later, so I'm saying no points on that one. Still at 115.
I do have a spouse but she is definitely a skier, so that one's a wash. Still at 115.
I'm bummed. Your little exercise cost me 30 ski days. Now I'm going to be depressed all day.
You two need to move down to Brazil like Thiago. Then, you could score over 1000.
what...does prickly work for FEMA??????
That gives me 1/3 of a point (assuming I count myself as 1 since I support myself; otherwise, I'd score 0).
