The problem is that--unlike toilet paper--ALL flushable wipes currently do NOT break down easily and quickly when in water. As a result they cause hundreds of millions of dollars in sewage problems per year in Canada ALONE because they must be removed, sometimes by hand.
Newly fallen snow gets sifted by the branches and needles of evergreens which can create a small well of basically uncompressed snow around their bases.
I had experienced this once about 40 years ago. My Boy Scout leader took a bunch of us to Yosemite to do some ski <something> (um, the term escapes me, but we had rented a specific model of skis which did not have the full skiboots but only a heavy boot which only connected to the skis by a clamp in the toes). Some help?
Weirdly there was only a trace of snow in Yosemite Valley (though it was cold enough that the open-air ice rink was open), so we took the road that went towards Glacier Point though the snow stopped us long before we got close to the Point. While getting set up, one of our guys needed to take a human waste and so approached a tree in his boots without the skis and fell into its tree well, fortunately feet first. The densely packed snow around the tree was only 4 feet deep so he could have crawled out on his own but we helped him out, laughing at him.
Cross country or Nordic skiing. There is also telemark skiing, which is a modified cross country ski, where the heel of the boot can be locked down, allowing a more alpine type of skiing.
Ah, much thanks. Cross country skiing was the term that fell out my 40-year-old remembrance, but then that was my ONLY experience with such being a Southern California resident with not much inclination to go into the local mountains during winters.
Y'know, while I have seen bits and pieces of Episode III I hadn't bothered to watch it, but even without knowing the original some of these are AMAZING. You have to imagine that the actors who were hired for their voices for this redubbing had to breaking up with laughter on every other line and saying "Are you stick fiddling kidding me?" on most of the others.
Based on the question: "Could I walk to the Moon over a lifetime?" (meaning just walk the distance, ignoring gravity, air and all other problems) while using the discography of David Bowie as a historic background.
Researchers studying langur monkeys had set up a video camera in the eye of a fake monkey which was the size of an infant monkey and had a very limited set of movements. Other monkeys attempted to engage with the fake including trying to nurse it, but at one point the fake fell some distance to the ground. Not entirely clear if that fall might have damaged the robot so that the researchers could no longer control it, but the behavior of those other monkeys considerably altered after the robot had "died".
