Dumb on-hill quote from yesterday - Page 2

post #31 of 49

I just thought of another missing feature in this "new Epic"....the Ignore button.   What happened to that?

Stick around a bit... to a handful of us here- forums are just entertainment. And yes, I'm usually rude and crude out of anonymity. (Thanks gawd this medium of communication arrived... it brought out a lot of us with multiple-personality disorders.) If I were to show you my professional profile, you'd learn I'm actually quite the international public speaker sporting a suit and tie and 3 daily languages.

Six posts under this handle, true. But serious decades on the planet.

Sadly (for me) this medium is not particularly robust in the area of communicating the finer nuances of interactions.

I attempted to respond with some balance. Starting with an acknowledgment of the potential for your contribution. Perhaps this is a nod to your international public speaker persona; and an invitation for that personality to begin to assume dominance over the rude crude twerp persona which seems to have been in control at the time of your post.

To speak true, I am genuinely puzzled at what you, and the countless others who indulge, gain from acting out on forums. Comprende? Entiendo? Verstehen? Capiche? Claro?

I'm not terribly interested in your professional profile, I expect most on this forum are expressing their passion for excitement and dancing with gravity and friction as a way of getting away from the humdrum of chasing the benjamins. Whatever.

It would, IMHO, be much more entertaining to hear your latest gear rave, trick tip, powder cache secrets, etc. You're invited and more than welcome in that domain.

Enough said. I'll not say another word about it. Back to skiing.

Seriously downhillMe, packing, on Stunt Night at the Basin.

why the hell are people so damn sensitive?  we have become so damn pc in this society. Everywhere I go, people are always acting so fake, just so they don't appear rude or "improper."  Honestly, I wish people would just act normal, for a change.  Look, STFU is just a figure of speech.  it's not meant to be taken personally.  People need to calm the hell down.

 

And lighthead, you can now put your dick back in your pants.

I actually though Samurai's posts, along with Racer256's, were entirely consistent with the original post that started the thread.

 

The gist of the original post is that 14 year olds are idiots. Samurai and Racer256 were really just providing further explanation of exactly how and why they're idiots.

hey- why did you cut out the part from my quote where I said skiing was a big joke to me?

post #39 of 49

I've already expressed my thoughts on collisions.  Bottom line, if you collide with me or if you collide with another, I will pull your pass, call patrol and ask questions later.  Colliding with someone is assault, plain and simple and I expect the perpetrator to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Look pretty f'in serious about skiing to me!

COLLISIONS ARE A PART OF SKIING

 

Yes, and dying is part of living. But that doesn't mean you should be in a hurry to do it. And it certainly doesn't give you the right to kill someone!

I'm with you, Chaos. As the long-running recent thread about liability in collisions shows, many people have frighteningly little understanding of their responsibility--both legal and simply as human beings. The disclaimer on the back of our lift tickets absolves the ski resort of most liability in things like skier-skier collisions. But it certainlhy does not absolve the individuals involved!

 I teach freshman in HS.  Today on a quiz I asked what is 47% of 100.  It took them a good 10 minutes to cipher it out and 50% got it wrong.

 

That's like...almost half wrong, right, Racer256?

 

 

Best regards,

Bob

I am not 100% sure about this.  I would have to say most wrecks are complete accidents.  Certainly if reckless or out of control, I guess you have a case.

 

As for the Math problem.  Yep I teach English.  Reading Narrative of Frederick Douglas.  I must confess the math was actually a bit harder than 47% of 100.  It was 47% of 10 million (a statistic on what percent of native Africans were shipped from the continent of Africa to the Carribean islands as slaves.)  So how many is that?

 

Nipple.  (hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehh - snork.)

Lighthead, what are your previous usernames? You allude to having posted here under other handles, then accuse Samurai, a knowledgeable and respected member of this on-line community, of hiding behind his internet anonymity!? I know who Samurai is, who are you?

  Ummm ugghh [lights dimming] 4.7 million?[/lights dimming]

 

I'm glad you and others like you still have a passion for teaching.  I am extremely grateful for all the teachers do for my kids and they are only 5 and 6 now.  I only bother to tease folks I respect

 Good question, Samurai's from Minnesota.  Knowing that helped me to better understand his brand of wit and humor.  Might otherwise have needed to pull my foot out of the back of my throat after  saying something to him without reading between the lines he carves when posting.

Well LightHead and Richie-Rich have at least one thing in common - the full face helmet.

Not sure what to make of it.uh...LightHead, do you have a heated camelback? Do you drive a large suv?

Ya know, when Richie posted a picture of his girlfriend some people changed their tune as if "well she likes him..."

Got some photos? Not so interested in the storm trooper thing...

Actually, I think we all gave in when he posted the pic of his girl because he actually posted it. That delivered a lot of respect. People like reality. And when a poster opens up, it usually works in his/her favor. RR is famous because we all give him hell for being so ghey but he still stands behind himself without dropping his guns. It's respectful that he doesn't hide anything... even when he's blatantly out there and being attacked. That's why I throw punches at him and he laughs that I can't reach because I'm smaller. It's funny to him. And then it's funny to me. I would love to actually meet that guy and have a conversation. 

 

It may be funny to Lighthead, too. I hope it is anyway.

Well, in NASCAR you'd expect some collisions... Oh, wait a minute... you said NASTAR.... oh, we are talking about skiing...  

 

Nah... skiing was never intended to be a contact sport until Skier Cross came along...

 

Is there seriously anybody here who believes that any collision/contact between skiers or boarders is acceptable? If you DO believe it to be acceptable- please stay away from Vail, OK? I'd hate to be the one you tangle with... and trust me- you will hate it even more!

I did a trip report back in Feb about our bad experience at Breck with two different snowboarders.  The attitude and recklessness was ridiculous.

 

So, that is all that was needed in the quote.
