Serious Times


i just met my new back country skiing partner out here at Lake Tahoe (California). What a perfect day! We did Mount Tallac (see pic) which was a relaxed 4 hours up and probably the best adrenalin-rushed powder run i had in years :-) They have a solid layer of no less than 2m of perfect snow - hmmmmmmm

Anyways, I don't wanna bother you with my miserable life. Rather i have to share THIS ABLSOLUTELY BADASS VIDEO of a guy skiing-or-better-flying down the EIGER!! 



      

And while i am at it. LEt me recommend two other outstanding YouTubes:


The power of ten is an amazing visualization of perspective-us-and-the-universe:



And last but not least: An awesome animation about what cyberspace does to human verbal practices:
