Taking Things in the Right Perspective

Made me laugh:

I recalled the story of Canadian snowboarded Ross Rebagliati, who was stripped of his olympic gold medal after testing positive for Marijuana (the decision was eventually overturned, largely because Marijuana was not on the list of banned substances).

rossI just remember thinking back then: the guy won the gold medal being stoned! Do you need anything more than that to prove that he is Number One?  I’m sure Michael Phelps would have been impressed too.

As for me, I’m too old for these experiments, having a drink or two on the slopes gives me just the right amount of courage to continue jumping in the snow-park at the age of 36.
