Life: Skiing Is Overrated!

My sister is currently sitting in a hospital recovering from a major concussion after a chairlift accident last weekend. After seeing this photo (posted today on Gizmodo) I've decided that skiing is TOTALLY overrated:

"In a bizarre incident that will surely lead to litigation (or an out-of-court settlement), a skier at Colorado's ritzy Vail resort was left dangling upside down and pantsless from a chairlift last Thursday morning. The January 1 mishap apparently occurred after the male skier, 48, and a child boarded a high-speed lift in Vail's Blue Sky Basin. It appears that the chairlift's fold-down seat was somehow not in the lowered position, which caused the man to partially fall through the resulting gap. His right ski got jammed in the ascending chairlift, and that kept him upended since his boot never dislodged from its binding."

Hey, CJ, at least you didn't lose your pants! ;-)

I hope you feel better soon.
