Very slow Friday night… not much time spent talking with Mel, or doing much of anything, really. She has been in the hospital for observation.. I’m going in to see her this morning. With any luck she’ll be released. (an X-Ray/MRI this morning will tell if she can go.) Apparently she’s feeling a lot better, her chest has cleared up, and is feeling tougher.
Once I switch my techs over, it’ll probably be out the door with me.
How evil are you?

Moment of Lyric – </p>
We will sink and
We will swim
Til’ the ocean turns to sand
We will laugh
We will cry
Til’ there’s no more breath inside
Cause we will sink
But we will swim
Man peed way out of avalanche (posted everywhere, but I’m going to want to read this in a year.)</p>
A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.
Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains.
He told them that after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out.
But as he dug with his hands, he realized the snow would fill his car before he managed to break through.
He had 60 half-liter bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realized he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported.
He said: “I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I’m glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there.”
Parts of Europe have this week been hit by the heaviest snowfalls since 1941, with some places registering more than ten feet of snow in 24 hours.
