Oh, those silly scientists. In the above referenced paper (Genome Research)I came across a new word: callipyge , which apparently means "beautiful buttocks" in the Greek language. The paper describes a mutation in sheep that favors the development of a more muscular rear end than normal at the expense of fat acumulation in the area.

And, yes, this has lots to do with skiing! We all know the benefits of a strong lower body in this sport. There may very well be a genetic basis to Picabo's rather large...ah...never mind.

every time I try to venture outside the North and South Poles, I find that the only snow is at high elevation.

why are you suggesting that we consult sources outside the Poles? I once worked for a very fine businessman who runs the best ski shop in the Wash DC metro area. He happens to be from Poland. Frankly, I'd prefer to stay with the Poles.

Also, it's so much easier to ski with poles. They help your timing on short turns. But for freeskiing GS, super G and big mtn, poles are more a security blanket. Still, I'm not ready to go without poles.

What exactly are these "poles" that are supposed to be so "extra"?

A new term of endearment for my wife, the most beautiful woman in the world.

Thanks BadRat!

Oh, lets do a beer sooner than November. Send me a PM with an available date but I am around most evenings this week and next.
