Age it is Rusty. Welcome back by the way it’s been a day or two since I’ve heard anything out of you.


I've had a parent in the hospital for the last month, and today we approved a 4th surgery. I'm on a back-up computer with no bookmarks because mine is on it's way out.

I still enjoy you guys, but I gotta prioritize. Let me think of something to ask about...

Okay, according to my memory, the Sochi Winter Olympics featured Snow Cross races with 4 snowboarders per heat.

How many snowboarders per Snow Cross heat competed in the recent Winter Games??

There are usually four snowboarders per heat and they are color coded per their seeding. I have seen heats with five in them due to ties or special rulings.

As far as know, that has always been the normal way of doing things.
But not this time in South Korea.

For anybody else who doesn't know or care, think of it as guessing a number between one and ten.

I agree with 6. Too bad, 4 is a much more manage-able number.

6 it was!

Thinking about it, while I find 6 contenders more exciting than 4, I'm thinking that I'd rather see 50% more heats instead. But the problem is they wouldn't televise them all.
Your Turn, Pirate!

We like to watch that event because it is like Roller Derby - lots of collisions, bumping and crashing but no one gets hurt.

Whoever can get to the floor the quickest is the winner. Floors open.

This! Lots of suspense, because you never know if somebody will wipe out or be forced off of the course.
