Dearest Huggable Science Peeps !

See this Air Hockey Game Thing ?

[attachment=3733]

Nice eh ?


Now why can't they use the same principal when it comes to non-snow ski slopes ?

So much better than that material stuff which grazes ewe when ewe fall !! (not me of course...as a sheepy I am of course an expert skiier)

Can't be that big a deal to try it eh ?


whajafink ?

Because you wouldn't be able to steer on it.  To steer with skis or a snowboard you must angle or tilt it but as soon as you did that on an air-table the air would escape and you'd end up scraping the surface.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

You wouldn't want to fit castors to a skateboard either.

Beavers are NOT for fitting to skateboards!  [:(!]

And it would hurt more to fall, i've been flying down a ski slope just about as fast as i could go and gone over, and just tumbled and tumbled and lost my skis, boots, beanie, sunnys, ski poles and a sock but i wasn't hurt at all, on hard stuff like that i wouldn't have been so lucky
