As with many of these rapid mass wasting events, if they trap air they can accelerate, like an air hockey puck. Avalanches are strange beasts, their initial rheology ( material strength) can really dictate their behavior. Pretty amazing event. Glad the videographer survived.

I think it's time to preemptively out crazy the crazies.  Every time something bad happens somewhere I will blame it on the policies I don't like.  So the bad fire season this year is because Tony Abbott was elected prime minister.  And things will be worse overseas because he's cutting foreign aid... wait, that's probably true...

And of course the conclusion on divine opinion on marijuana should be obvious from the Super Bowl.

How refreshing to have a political party that doesn't consider itself a "big tent" and will actually kick people out. Here, you join the party, they have to take you.

  • In September, MEP Godfrey Bloom {was forced to} quit the UKIP group in the European parliament after joking that a group of UKIP women who did not clean behind their fridges were "sluts".

Unfortunately the global population of people like this would indicate that being this class of idiot isn't very detrimental.
