Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
When I was very young (seven, I think) I broke my leg (falling off of the backyard swing set, and a friend falling on top of me). I lived in a mountainous region where, in season, many people took narrow slats of wood into the mountains and slid down the snow, only to ride back up hill and do it again. And over the next few years many of my classmates returned to school after a vacation with crutches and a newly-plastered leg.
I concluded that I'd been there and done that. So I never took up skiing.
