We have an elderly set of Binatone ones......20 quid for 4 of them. They still charge OK and last the day after a decade of use. Tested them over 5 miles separation with no issues. Line of sight is important. If the kids get around the other side of a hill then they don't work. They are branded as Binatone Latitude...probably from about 2003

Im not sure if this is true but i was told (Austria specifically) it you read the very small print of the t&c of lift companys an articles of association with ski resorts. It is compulsory to be insured. Therefore if your involved in an accident with no insurance you may facr a double blow with the Police. Did you get toilet paper yet?
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Tell the school they will be absent because you must attend a family gathering. Then go and have fun. Make sure the kids catch up with anything they missed by the weekend. Don't tell blatant lies...just massage the truth until it fits. :-D You know what they say about all work and no play.

Bicarbonate of soda loves smelly boots. My work boots get wet and dirty every day. Dry them out, bit of soda bic and a quick shufty with the Henry sucking device in the morning.....No smells. Don't put the soda bic in if they are still moist. Wet and dried soda bic is the second hardest substance known to man (after Weetabix)

It is a confidence thing. Carving a blue feels like it puts energy back into your legs. Carving a red feels like you have pulled a horny blonde Russian hooker on her day off. Go faster and enjoy it, but stay in control.

(only kidding. Please don't. 1.5km of moguls and a long way to slide. Enjoy it from the bubble.) That made me proper lol. As a relative newbie I navigated roughly half a dozen bumps in the States...Believing I was now an expert I went for the big one. Was about a mile and a bit down and steep as a steep thing with a bit more steep. My thighs and face still hurt thinking about it a decade later. :D

@king key, what is the closing speed of one skiier moving at 80 towards one standing still? 80 again. Right? So from the frame of reference of one skiier in either scenario the other skiier is approaching them at 80 MPH. Now if the skiier who is standing still is replaced by a brick wall or a tree, the system will have exactly the same momentum and kinetic energy as two skiers hitting each other at 40MPH. It is a principle of physics. HTH :-D

@king key, Will that be a no then? I was hoping you would demonstrate using momentum and relativistic kinetic energy rather than a cartoon. What is the closing speed of two skiers moving towards each other if they are both travelling at 40MPH?

All I was trying to point out was that 2 skiers going into each other whilst both travelling at 40mph is not the same as an 80mph collision. I don't want to start a fight it's just a physics principle. :) Show us using equations. I like equations :-D

It's not to do with velocity but with conservation of momentum. I agree with @king key edit: best quick find, watch from 30 seconds http://www.our-space.org/media/item/72/13/Momentum-in-Space.m4v That video doesn't really explain it very well. Some interesting physics above.....and some hilarious. The important bit of that vid is that the total momentum after the collision is the same as the total momentum before the collision. If one skier is standing still he has no monentum. When someone tits him at 40 MPH they will probably come out with half the momentum of the moving skiier. If they are both moving at 40MPH then there is twice as much momentum in the system, flesh and bone will need to absorb twice as much energy than if one was standing still

@Norrin Radd, harsh....but fair. If a cyclist wants to filter up the inside with 3 inches to spare and then hold me up they shouldn't be surprised when I decide to pass them with 3 inches to spare. Sauce for the goose and all that. I usually 'have an accident' with RLJs if I am on foot. You wouldn't believe how many times they crash face first into my elbow. :shock:

@dp, once bitten, twice shy. I haven't hurt myself properly on planks. Have done on a motorbike (technically speaking, not on a motorbike when it started getting hurty). Give it a few days back on the planks....Your head will ignore previous pain and injury when you give it something nice to think about.

@under a new name, It will have a momentum of 7.03 kg/m/s when it hits the toe. What we need to do now is get a super slow mo camera and get @flangesax to repeat the experiment. Then we can count the frames, work out the exact amount of time required for the toe to decelerate the metal plate back to zero and subsequently calculate the force. It would need to stop in roughly 0.035 seconds to give a force of 200 kg-m/s^2 or 200 Newtons. I can't wait to see the video...in the name of science of course :-D It would of course require an un broken toe of similar size and bone density. A toe on his other foot would be ideal for your purposes I think. That does indeed seem like the only sensible option. @under a new name, Computers and Maths for me, but you tend to forget all that stuff. When the kids started doing their GCSEs I was like a rabbit in the headlights. "Dad...what is"....insert formula here..... "OK - I know this. I have a degree in this stuff...give me a look at your text book for a second so I can check" :lol:

@foxtrotzulu, I spent many of my childhood summers on a dairy farm. The cattle were free to roam between byre, barn and fields. I would get sent to look for them every morning and there didn't appear to be any pattern. Some inside, some outside. They just like to hang out in gangs.

How, @flangesax, did you arrive at 200 kg "force"? (Force is in Newtons and would be 5.8kg x 9.8 ms^2) ... you would need to work out its velocity at point of impact. Time to fall (s = ½at^2 ) and speed (v=s/t) and then momentum (p=m*v) where s=0.3 a=9.8 and m=5.8. The answer will be in kilogram meters/second. Then you need to work out the squashyness of a toe. I don't have an equation for that.

CGI, like that bear (?) in Japan? @bambionskiis, fun fact of the day, moose are colourblind. Crickey it's just one big learning arena on here. For example, I found out on Word Association earlier (thanks to thornyhill) that a baby cod is a codling. How cool is that (sorry, I've got teenagers). No - a ling is a type of fish like a cod.... but a baby cod is indeed a codling. I have adultlings

@SlipnSlide, Agreed 100%. Bit of a conundrum. We do a shed load of work with homeless people, (they never tip) but a quid here or there can really make the difference between life and death. Most people are happy enough to spit on them and tell them to get a job. Sad state of affairs. @martinm seems to find some humour in the misfortune of others. I don't think people choose to be homeless or live in a war zone. People choose to be chalet staff. They know the score before they sign the contract.
