You say potayto, I say potawto.

You say "committed to his photograph," I say he "should be committed." *lol*

It's terrifying to me that someone would make the jump ONE HANDED especially. In the right kind of shoes and with no baggage, it doesn't seem as terrifying. But I can't imagine ever thinking "I'm wearing flop shoes and I've got a shit load of gear. Time to make like a mountain goat!"

I wonder how his photograph turned out, though.

Ah, well, i'm sure i should have snopes-ed it first, but it would still seem more sensible to have climbed down into the crevice and then back up the other side. It would suck quite a lot to have a broken bone and have to get back out of there to get help.

Even after reading the Snopes report on it, I still have to say that he was incredibly stupid. I've been taught since I was a young girl you don't wear flips or thongs or sandles to go tramping around the desert, no matter how sterilized a tour group may make it. Hope he got his shot.

I'll have a very nice life. You claimed you didn't hurt my back in March. The x-rays all show that you did. Thanks for causing damage and putting me through even more surgery. Oh and that night when you talking about suicide, I called the cops.
