What the fuck is that? I try to be a nice guy and warn you that you've been making yourself some 'enemies' lately(I don't think you need to be told), and are at the same time listed as a minor, and I get a 'fuck off' for my trouble? Fine.
Fuck off right back you infant. Perhaps I'll just ask @dag to ban the 12 year old then.
What the fuck is your problem? At one point you wrote 'friendly' comments, but now you seem to feel the need to be a chingalera light.

Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum

Ah, one of the all-time great singles of the rock era. So mature, yet it was their first single. I envy those hearing this for the first time (and they're just kids in this video... kids!). One of Paul McCartney's favorite songs:

McCartney: "It's got to be "A Whiter Shade of Pale." The first time I ever heard it was the night I met Linda. We met at the Bag O' Nails, and we went on to the Speakeasy, and they played the record of it there. We were with Keith Moon of the Who and Eric Burdon of the Animals, and we were all trying to figure out who it was. We all thought it must be Stevie Winwood, but it turned out to be Procol Harum. We just said, 'This is the best song ever, man.'"

Happened across this while looking at avalanche videos

if you're interested,....

generally you wear a transceiver (sometimes called a beacon). Everyone wears one and it constantly transmits. If someone gets buried , the rescuers switch to search mode. Old transceivers just beeped faster as you got closer, but modern digital transceivers generally have a distance and direction readout. They're still only good for about 100 feet.

You have 15-20 mins to dig someone out before Bad Shit happens (oxygen depravation, etc). The digging itself takes most of the time, so finding them quickly is imperative. All of which assumes they haven't already died of trauma in the initial slide.

I thought RFID or GPS tracers would have eliminated the guesswork in finding skiers.
