  2. This is the conversation I had with my wife a few weeks ago: Me: I want to order another Thirst from Mark this season. Her: *looks at closet full of snowboards* Ok then. Me: Cool, I ordered it last week. It's going to look like a banana. Her: Sweet. And that's why I will nurture our relationship until I die.

  3. In two weeks I turn 75. A couple of years ago my child bride (she's only 69) suggested I put together a short video of some of my life's adventures and misadventures. Alpine snowboarding is just a portion of the video but you might get a kick out of it.

  4. Well I'm healing up pretty well now ive been out of hospital a couple of weeks . Still under doctors orders to keep it very easy going but im feeling pretty normal now and my lung capacity is back to being where it should be for someone my age. So it looks like by the time the snow starts landing i should be able to jump on a board again

  8. Just got back from the Warren Miller movie. Great overall movie and the carving from the Montucky Clear CUT looks pretty darn good. @soccerdogeand the Winterstick story and riding was super fun! They used quite a bit of @Jcarfootage and there are a lot of us from the event in the clips. I wish I had a copy of it to give you a play by play…

  12. She's lucky that the transplant is even an option for her right now. Our ICU beds here are full, which means that even if a healthy donor dies, there's no transplant surgeries happening. That's just one of a slew of elective surgeries hat have had to be cancelled, including cancer surgeries and heart bypasses, right down to it taking days to get a broken bone fixed. And sorry, but the unvaccinated "did that". I've gotten to the point (as I'm sure most health care professionals have) where non-vaccinated people can go to hell, but I have untold sympathy for all the people who have to suffer and die because of their selfishness and idiocy. Our provincial leader might be a dickhead, but he did get one thing right. The unvaccinated are the ones complaining the loudest about mask mandates and lockdowns and their freedoms, but if they got the shot, then there would be no mask mandates and lockdowns - for them, or anyone. I can't any more. Sock it to the libs and exercise your choice all you want, but don't cry to the media when you have to be hospitalized and they leave you to die in the hallway. Because nobody cares any more.

  13. Interesting study. Found a news article about it here. The most problematic thing about the “natural immunity” crowd is that they use it as an excuse not to get vaccinated. You don’t want to catch this thing, period. And there is still a benefit to vaccination even after catching Covid. Regarding the Ontario decision: according to Kyran Moore who made the announcement, you are 18 times more likely to get myocarditis or other serious events if you get Covid. So get vaccinated!

  17. I asked Mark what boards he might have available (I was asking for a friend). He sent me a couple of pics of that new X, so I thought I'd share them here. It's 177 with a 22cm waist. Calls it the Every Mountain (EM). Man, it looks really nice with those red sidewalls. And I love that nose shape. Looks similar to the nose on the PC swallowtail carvers he made for me. No nose flip-flopping around while carving, yet still lifts over the soft stuff the way you want. He also has the original "X" with a 21cm waist up for sale at a ridiculously low price.

  22. The last two items you presented were neither suppressed nor censored. That study is easily found, as are articles pointing out the problems with it such as I linked. The Ontario decision was front page news in the National Post. Right now where I live we are in a world of hurt. Doctors are soon going to be making triage decisions resulting in unnecessary deaths of non Covid patients due to our overwhelmed hospitals. And part of that problem is squarely on the head of guys like you putting out misinformation under the guise of “just sayin’”.

  23. Note that for that factor 13 they are comparing delta variant infections in jan-feb 2021 vs non-delta variant vaccinations in jan-feb. They are comparing the chance that you get the same variant twice in 6 months vs the chance of getting delta variant within 6 months of getting a non delta vaccination. And that vaccination is not as good as the real thing(having a high mortality) is as expected. The second link is only a decision(recommendation) to use a vaccine with fewer side effects for this age group. Its the luxury of choice. Both links do not give any reason not to vaccinate. And a previous infection count as a vaccination(in Europe at least). But the immuno compromised and others are rightly fearful of those who downplay the risk of this virus, and spreading it. Open your eyes. You might see the sun shining.

  24. @Charlie2021, As you are already having fun with your Rossi, you could of course keep on with it focusing may be a bit more on alpine technique to improve your technique . The board size seems ok for you as you consider yourself/are an intermediate alpine rider. Totally true that a modern board will change your riding perspectives....so much joyful......but not absolutly necessary if money ( and time on the slopes) is a concern..... If new board.... Board size : 162-168 Width : 20-21 cm due to your boot size SCR : around 9-11 Board flex : soft to medium Board construction : rubber dampening. Combined with Titanal would be Holy Grail but very expensive. Last point, you're from Barcelona. Not a lot of Hardbooters around there... I don't know where you usually ride, but I've been a snowboard instructor for 25 years at Grandvalira-Pas de la Casa Resort. A lot of people from Barcelona ski there....so if you're around.....we could share some technical knowledge through a few runs, lessons, whatever......just ask for Rodolphe at Pas de la Casa ski school.

  25. Ride your Rossi, book a trip to one of the European carvers' gatherings, ride lots of demos, buy what you liked the most. OTOH, if you bought that Vantage, the price is incredible, you could always sell it at close to no loss, if no love.

  26. Just checked this thread again - been avoiding it a bit because I realized a while ago that the vaccination discussion bears to many similarities to politics and religion discussions. But sometimes I like to check the crap you get thrown at you in the US. E.g. the first link from TVR. In the article a guy Steve Kirsch cites the VAERS database which lists 6000 heart attacks within 2 weeks after vaccinations (https://openvaers.com/covid-data/cardiac). If these data would be correct.... Then COVID vaccines also protect against heart attacks!!!! There are 800,000 heart attacks in the US per year. That means 0.01 % of the population gets a heart attack every 2 weeks. 180 million have been fully vaccinated, so those 180 million should have had 18000 heart attacks. Since only 6000 are reported, I guess COVID vaccines provide a 60% protection against heart attacks! A bunch of crap of course, just to show how you can play with numbers.

  27. You want to see a show? Get vaxxed. Want to eat inside at most resorts in Colorado? get vaxxed. Using common sense is not "woke", its considerate of others, and smart. Got both of mine, I'm not magnetized, and try as i miight, I can't seem to get my laptop to hookup to me for that high speed 5g hotspot on my jobsite Mario

  34. Far more contagious? Euh? no. https://www.cdc.gov/leprosy/transmission/index.html "Prolonged, close contact with someone with untreated leprosy over many months is needed to catch the disease" https://www.medicinenet.com/is_leprosy_hansens_disease_contagious/article.htm#what_is_leprosy "However, acquisition of the disease usually occurs after long-term (months to years) contact with an untreated individual with the disease." https://www.leprosymission.org/blog/how-is-leprosy-transmitted/ "Recent research by our team in Bangladesh showed that, over the course of a year, no more than 13 out of every 1,000 people who lived with a person affected by leprosy was diagnosed with the disease themselves. " https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/a-z/leprosy-risk "Scientists have learned that to catch leprosy, a healthy person must have months of close contact with someone who has leprosy." Fun Fact from the link above: "It’s possible to catch leprosy by handling an armadillo. U.S. dermatologists are finding that some patients who get leprosy have either handled an armadillo or spent time outdoors in an area where these animals live." I guess, we'll have to ban armadillos from restaurants, concerts and family reunions. LOL.

  35. Last time I go to Nicki Minaj for medical advice. All those vaccinations didn’t swell things at all. I should have gone with the tried-and-true hernia surgery method. Not just the size of gorilla nuts, but the color too. Looks like I’ll be lame at snowboarding again this season…

No because it meant i could get by quite happily on one lung so i wasnt exactly rushing to the ER/AnE department(4 weeks later) so it made reinflating it more awkward than a normal collapsed lung
