Altitude


1. The addition of the Alpine Trebuchet event added some much needed drama to the winter games.

2. Never piss off a Swiss coke dealer.

3. "Hans! Look out for that... [thunk]... Piper Cub."

4. While skiing in Idaho, John Kerry's ego suddenly exploded ... sending him into low earth orbit.

5. Unable to afford UAV's, Norway implements its own form of manned aerial surveillance.

6. The really impressive part: He can write his name in the snow at the same time.

7. "♪'Upside-down, you're turnin' me'♪---" Johnny Weir changes winter sports but still honors his Diva.

8. A new metaphor for the Democratic party: Flying high now but completely inverted and headed for a crash.

Zurich Pride's first ever "Black & Blue" circuit party never recovered from the publicity grabbing stunt of its founder, Lance Gruber.

I dunno, Hans. It seems there MUST be an easier way to set air traffic way points than flinging skiers and radioing "X marks the spot..."

In response to news that China was able to destroy an orbiting satellite, Swiss defense contractors do their best to convince the government that they too have high altitude capabilities.

So there I was, hung over, minding my own business, taking a dump in my own bathroom, and I lit a smoke. How the heck was I supposed to know that the d@mn contractors had poured all the turpentine down the toilet after they got done painting???

China's earlier attempts at space exploration was something left to be desired.
