A sad and bizarre ski accident from Keystone Resort. Jennifer Ash, was riding a beginner run and fell, landing on her butt, which caused a tear in an artery in her vertebrae, which in turn caused her to have a stroke, damaging her brain. She was pronounced brain-dead four days later. Full story at The Denver Channel.
Just a horrific accident last Sunday. Three cyclists were hit head-on by a Santa Clara County sheriff's deputy who claims to have fallen asleep at the wheel while on duty, veering across the lanes and striking the 3 cyclists. The crash killed bicyclists Kristy Gough, 30, of San Leandro and Matt Peterson, 29, of San Francisco. A third cyclist, 20-year-old Christopher Knapp of Germany is recovering from his injuries. Tragic loss. Via SF Gate.
Looks like the Martians are having a bad avalanche season just like us. NASA released a photo from their High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) shortly after a massive avalanche hit near the Martian North Pole, kicking up debris and red dust all captured by the camera. How epic would a road trip to Mars be for snowboarding and skiing? And with surface gravity only about 38% of ours, imagine the huge air? Though the food kinda sucks we heard. And the Martian ladies, while excellent in bed, are rumored to eat their men after coitus. Ahh well, think of it as an adventure. We call shotgun on the shuttle!!! Woo, hoooo! Via Reuters.
