@101WaysWas this an attempt to sound intelligent? Your comment came
across as being pompous and extremely uneducated. I'm guessing the biggest
risk you take everyday is stepping outside into the sun after playing World of
Warcraft all day. It must be really difficult for you to live life because
it's full of "Anti-risk" technology such as airbags in cars.Try to be a little my sympathetic and understand a life was almost lost
from this avalanche. As someone who is very familiar with what occurred, the
individual who was buried was being extremely safe and was not doing anything to
provoke the avalanche. It's similar to someone driving 50 mph in the slow
lane just to be safe, but is then hit by a drunk driver from oncoming traffic.
Accidents happen no matter how safe you're being and thankfully
there's technology that just might save your life like airbags in a car or
in the case of this avalanche, a beacon.
To "101Ways" the equipment for protection is nothing near the cost of
the equipment for the sport.In this case, look at the cost of a
snowmobile. The average cost for a new snowmobile is $11,000. A beacon can be
purchased for $200 to $300. That means for less than 3% of the cost of the
machiene, you can get the beacon to help yourself be safe.
You can sell the tools and equip for risk taking in a sport or occupation but
that is the nature of being human. If beacons were not so expensive then more
people would have them. High cost fun has little market value in the spirit of
sports and risk. When profits can be made by induced propaganda by
advertising and government greed by neglect to inform the danger, risk, and
death are never advertised as a side effect of a sport luring the ill prepared
to take risks.Our lives and the way we live is all based on
instinctive risk and you can't buy that or sell it. And the young age
group of those making high risk fun a thrill will never think about personal
safety or advice preventing it.Risk means you can fail, and if you
survive the risks it makes you stronger and more determined, that is why we
desire the dangers in taking risk. Anti-risk prevention technology is for the
risk impaired that shouldn't be taking the risks they can't survive.
