two young snowboarders, a 26 belgian and a 20 from S.Marino, got down first as the track opened early this morning.
They descended in parallel on the still desert slope, then suddenly switched sides, but crashed one into the other as they crossed tracks.

One's skull collapsed in, the other one broke his cervical vertebra. Both died, despite the tempestive intervention of an heliambulance
The younger one's father was assisting the scene from above.

It's not clear yet whether they wore helmets, anyway head protective gear is enforced by law for snowboarders only under the age of 14

:eek:

It would only belong here if it had a hilarious video to go along with it.

[btw, does "obs." mean obscene???]

how can you be so callous and joke on such disgraces?
:p

anyway, in the evening news they gave some more interesting detail:

after the clash, the two bodies kept on slipping downhill, smearing a red trail behind them on the white virgin snow...

does this kind of thing qualify as major news in italy?

we have things like terrorist beaheading plots here

major news yesterday in Italy, monopolising all the evening talk shows, has been a public quarrel between Berlusconi and his wife because at a gala dinner he told to a former hot TV starlet who he then hired as politician and got elected in the Parliament, that he'd marry her if only he weren't alas already married.

Julius Caesar is ashamed of you.

MoSe

Caesar was a foreign conqueror invading the northern regions famous for their operosity.
He knew squat about skiing

But he wasn't boring, he killed a lot of frenchmen for a start. That's a plus.

MoSe

In Reading we have 0 in the last 100 years. A rare success story for the local authorities.

Own goal

Obsolete

And "tempestive" does not have the sense of "timely" which you want...

1. Too late: I already 100-0ed IW
:p

2. tell dictionary.com, as I had already posted above
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tempestive
\Tem*pes"tive\, a. [L. tempestivus.]
Seasonable;
timely; :p :p :p
as, tempestive showers. [Obs.]

I accept the remark anyway, forgive my LATINISM
and beware when you go snowboarding

I had never heard of that word before.

Why is MoSe using really confusing English words?

KrazyHorse
01-02-2007, 15:35:01
Yeah, that one was new to me too.

MoSe
01-02-2007, 15:45:00
you must be prevented against latin, which nevertheless constitutes a good chunk of english lexicon too

It just that we tend to 'englishize' :p common 'latin-rooted' words in the hope they exist. 99% it works, but sometimes they are not common at all when translated.

Reminds me of maroule and his use of the 'oniric' word.

I AM prevented against Latin. I had the vaccine when I was 3.

I remember I once impressed a french girl when she asked me "qu'est ce que tu fais la" and I replied "Je cogite"

Well it is a ski crash, rather than the car crash that is Berlusconi's political career...
