    Meh, been there, done that, got the t-shirt, hit the ground, stood up, had a laugh. Whippers are fun and shouldn’t be feared :D

    @Ilogic: Thanks mom. We’re all aware that climbing is dangerous. Almost as dangerous as taking the bus to work. Try and enjoy it, or you’re wasting your time with it.

    Whatever man. I didn’t ask for some lame ass explanation about the dangers of climbing blah blah blah… you made a idiotic statement. from time to time idiotic statements get flamed. deal with it.

    Fair enough, I’ll take that. As one of this forum’s masters of idiotic statements, your explanation warrants acknowledgement.
