Taken just a bit ago at 7:15 or so - 6:15 real time. I've been sitting out here in shorts and sandals enjoying the return of the warm. Not today or yesterday. It's 31° and will remain not too nice out for the rest of the day. Springtime in the Rockies.

X Games Safety?

You're kidding right. Our society loves nothing better than watching endless video's of people being hurt or hurting themselves on purpose.

This fetish demonstrates a culture that has issues. Came up "short on the second of the course's four massive jumps". Tough shit. This is front page billing as well and is just not news.

A society that embraces violence on many levels but you cross a line when you blow away let's say more than a few with a gun. The outrage over mass killings is nationwide. Single doubles and triples not so much.  
No linky.

"Feel the fear but do it anyway." Later that night, the 19-year-old New Zealand skier was rushed to a Denver hospital with a fractured back she suffered during practice after coming up short on the second of the course's four massive jumps. That same night, 25-year-old snowmobiler Caleb Moore's condition worsened as a cardiac injury he suffered in a crash Thursday night during the X Games freestyle competition led to a brain complication.
