Okay, kids, it's picture time!
I know, some of you really don't care one way or the other, but
before you dismiss this entirely, let it be known that there are some twisted things in here.
For instance, the topographically inclined among
you should be able to figure out my driving route to Salt Lake City from Oklahoma City based solely on this picture.

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SKELETON.
Yes, it really is that fast (40k),
especially when you're right next to the track.
This is Tristan Gale (28k)
