but at what point does a hill become a mountian? come on skiking tell us.
Yes, I will tell you all.
Back in 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue. When he saw a big wave, he thought it was bigger than a hill, which is exactly what they called their tiny little Alps. So he decided to call the wave a mountain.
And he still lives to tell the tale.
So, a mountain is a big wave in 1492. Therefore there are no more mountains.
God, I can't believe you guys don't know this.
