Epic people give you a chance to be part of the group. I started here not really aware of how things typed come off as thoughts on the net. I am a bit full of my own ideas, partly due to a lot of experience, and came off rude and arrogant at times. People backed off for a while. I'm slow, but I got it, and have gradually become tolerable to read. Some folks here totally recognized the effort to be less of a dick and have posted on a thread or two of mine and completely normalized interaction. Nice. Thanks.

I haven't logged on in five days -- this thread is still cookin'?

Dawgcatching --   

Davluri -- two good posts (# 109 and 125) IMO.  Not to detract from them, but they were somewhat inconsistent.  In #109, you said that people are rude not because they are inexperienced, unaware, or slow, but because they were simply a**holes -- and in #125 you confess to past rudeness and ascribe it to lack of awareness and being slow.   

My own view of human nature is that it's more like both your posts combined:

(a)  some people are rude because, as you noted, they are just a**holes (the guy who cuts you off in traffic);

(b)  some are unintentionally rude because they can't help it or are caught up in their own circumstances (the 85 year old lady who cuts you off in the supermarket line);

(c)  some people are unintentionally rude because they are inexperienced (my 9 year old daughter who cut in front of several snowboarders at the terrain park because she thought they were "just resting" at the top).

As usual, just my $.02....

If you think being a gaper has anything at all to do with skill level or certain clothes, you are most likely a huge gaper. Gaper is a state of mind.

I still have the jacket O.B. but I can't button it anymore!
Check out the Gogs,Bouton firefighting goggles,it was a hot/dirty job but somebody had to do it.
Pete that was a homemade neck gator/hat.So yes everyone was a Gaper at one time or another. Even Jer.
Skiing was sooooo much simpler then. 1978?

Hey Slider, you were the height of fashion for 1978. I know cause it was Old Boots good fashion sense that made me love him.

The rule of thumb is...if you're not Jer, you're a gaper.

Cuz everybody gapes at Jer...the boy is SO HOT.

In short - this place rules and it's time to show some appreciation. Post up your favorite things about GapicSki - and don't feel the need to limit yourself to just one.

I'll start with a couple:

-8 page arguements over the merits of safety bars.
-flailers blaming their horrible technique on their edge bevel being off by .5 degree.

I of course could go on and on, but I want others to have a chance.
I'm glad I wear a helmet because I'm always getting hit in the head when people put down the safty bar.

I thought I was a gaper because I don't get the edge beveling thing.

Just a reminder.  This thread is what can happen when you have too much time on your hands.

The 'Ultimate Thread Killer' thread, that was love.
post #139 of 140

Yes it was.  And what a lame bunch of crap replaced it.

It amuses me that there are so many people who think typing on a computer hassomething to do with skiing.
