Delay: Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.
Atomic Spunk: If I was nearby when this happened, her first words upon waking would have been, "Hey, where are my jacket, shirt and bra?"
TheWhoppah: Does she drive a car?
Benevolent Misanthrope: Delay: Wow, that's not something a healthy person does at work. She has a medical problem.She said it's happened before when she gets too cold or is at too high an altitude - and her sister has the same problem. I'm guessing it's a form of altitude sickness. Good on her for being a trooper, and I hope she does as she said she will and gets herself checked out by a doc.
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Am I the only one who thinks Nordic Alliance sounds like a white supremacist group?
wildcardjack: Maintaining balance on skis increases oxygen use, so she was close to passing out to begin with. Then she started talking so she maxed out VO ability while maintaining a calm breath.I think she needs more cardio training.
gwowen: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Am I the only one who thinks Nordic Alliance sounds like a white supremacist group?Yes, but the Utah Nordic Alliance of Utah sounds less threatening
belhade: That's just a mild burtation.
TheWhoppah: What does locking your knees have to do with anything? That sounds like an old wives' tale.
ThatBillmanGuy: TheWhoppah: What does locking your knees have to do with anything? That sounds like an old wives' tale.It's not. I damn near passed out standing at attention in boot camp because of this. Some others actually did. They don't tell you not to lock your knees in boot camp. They probably should.
GranoblasticMan: belhade: That's just a mild burtation.Yeah. She didn't even bahanda pet.
ShawnDoc: TheWhoppah: What does locking your knees have to do with anything? That sounds like an old wives' tale.Nope.http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_locking_your_knees_make_you_pass_out
hokiethug1992: Hope she resolves this before she gets to Kolob.
BenJammin: I love XC skiing and I hate it when the media attempts to make it look (zzzzz) boring.
