As a disabled instructor yourself you should have some concept that it is VERY common for people to be uinder the influence of various substances.... some are seen as quite harmless - when in fact they may NOT be so.... YOU should be more prepared to assess the SITUATION in EACH INDIVIDUAL SITUATION... not make such blanket black & white calls...
Disski: I wasn't referring to any part of the discussion on drugs in my post. I was referring only to the out of control obsession with alcohol. I am completely accustomed to assessing my students for determining the level of their cognitive ability, while on their controlled medications, which make their lives more managable. Without it they couldn't perform very well. You obviously missunderstood which substance I was discussing in my previous post. Sorry for the confusion.

In order to obtain a measure of friction at least some edging needs to be done...

Then you should realise that when I say that I ski better after 1-2 drinks I am QUITE serious.... that is not "I feel I ski better after 1-2 drinks" but "my instructors all tell me I SHOULD have a drink before I ski instead of my Kafi Lutz 1/2- 2/3 of the way through a lesson"

They are serious about my improved performance.... as with other things about how I learn movements sometimes the reasons are not really clear to start with - but we can guess.... often the guess is confirmed later

Nah, you don't even need a partner (Gonzo's favorite word "onanism" comes into play here)..... all you need is good rythym and one pole (no pun intended!)

Does that mean I'm supposed to have reactions without my bucket of morning coffe ?
Depressing...
Can't we get back to the cheese and sex part of the discussion ?

maybe my favorite word for those who appear to practice that very thing in their posts, but not my favorite word among all words.

Does one need an excuse to drink a beer, or cup o' joe? No excuses necessary. We do those things because we enjoy them. What's your reason not too?

Don't knock it 'till you try it.

Speaking of sex on skis, didn't the French invent rear-entry boots? Do you suppose there is a connection here?

After all I understand the preferred method of pharmaceutical adminstration in France is the suppository... :

Why do you hate the French?
post #254 of 266
I do not believe anyone said they hate the french. I just said don't bring them into this since this thread has so many different topics going at once as it is. Next thing you know we will be talking about the Innuits.

Actually I love the French as long as they are not doing anything militarily (like blowing up Abombs in paradise) or diplomatically (like the messes in Bosnia).

Skiing in the French alps is a blast, more French are into off piste stuff than the Germans, their food is great, they love to party and have great hooch, the ladies are charming and accomplished flirts, and they are generally really fun people to hang with. And I actually salute their preference for things rear-entry, although this is not my preferred boot.

Now if they could only increase their conversational distance, smoke less Gitanes or use more toothpaste...

Did you hear the story about the French Fur Trapper and the Innocent Innuit maiden??
post #257 of 266
Is this the one where they got engaged and were fooling around before the wedding on one really cold night when, all of a sudden, she sort of broke it off?

I don't get the toothpaste thing. For England, yes. But France?

I used to work for P & G in Europe about 15 years ago. To our great dismay the average Frenchman only consumed one tube of toothpaste a year back then. While this may have changed somewhat, probably in no small part to P & G advertising expenditures, my nose leads me to believe that old habits die hard.

Actualy, the latest study says 3.5 tubes a year. a 350% increase in 15 years ?Thanks P&G !

i'd back that - he who punched women was not very into teeth cleaning - encouragment was required

He must have been very attractive except when he was beating you or getting his stinking mouth near your face! You should heve smashed the teeth out of his filthy puss.

Well I have kinda avoided this thread cause I didn't know quite what to say. I am against drinking and skiing or drinking and any other kind of physically active endevor. I have not had a real drink since 5-29-97 at 7:28PM.

Prior to 5-29-97 I did drink and ski and was for the most part a poster boy for the Vonage phone commercials.

Lets see, I needed a beer to ride up the lifts, and I needed a warm up beer to be able to ski off piste. Well in fact I needed many warm up beers because I skied bumps in a less than low impact manner most of the time.

Twasn't all that bad. I learned to ski bumps without poles so that I could have a beer in one hand and a foot long sub in the other. I do recall some bizzare accidents involving alcohol but for the most part I did not ski where there were any REAL people so I didn't have collisions, at least with people.

I was carried to the automobile on more than one occasion as I would ski the fast line slow until I was exhausted or drunk or both. If that was not at the bottom of the slope, eh so be it.

I never drank hard liquor or did any drugs other the alcohol and Water, huh I never touched the damn stuff.

So am I sympathetic to drunks. You have got to be kidding, I have no tolerance for drunks but don't mind someone who just has a couple of beers.

Good for you Pierre! Now quit beating your wife and brush your teeth once in a while, Frenchie!

Pierre,

Happy almost 8 year anniversary!

And thanks again for the impromptu "private" the other week -- now I know what that above comment meant!

You ROCK!

He only hit me the once - I then stuck everything in the car & drove away.... NEARLY managed to drive over him in the process as he would NOT get off my car bonnet - he thought lying across it would stop me going.... HA! I told him move or I drive over you & started moving forward - he ran away!
