Any of you guys seen this movie? It was on PBS last night. And I thought we were taking a chance in life racing motorcycles.

we all would have cut the rope. it's easy to say you wouldn't have, but we aren't up on a mountain with apendages going numb in a blizzard. y'know how easy it is to think about leaning a bike over, then when you're actually there it's not so easy. they'd both still be there if he hadn't cut the rope. awesome movie though, liked the format. JohnnyB would like it too if he wasn't a bigot. oh well...

I'd disagree, but only in hindsight, that they BOTH might have made it out if he hadn't cut it. They BOTH would have fallen to the same place joe did with the broken leg, and sure, maybe they'd both have bad legs, but the chances of survival are better with two than one. And that joker in the tent might have had the wherewithall to get help if neither of them came back. And the reason joe kept going was that he didn't want to die alone, which is something none of us want to do.

What was the name of the english band that kept coming back to him with that song that he couldn't get out of his head?

JB would have liked it, I am sure.

I've got digital cable... I can watch good stuff.

Like right now I'm watching a Frakenhiemer marathon on TCM. Film showing right now is "Grand Prix"

And I'd cut the rope on a perfectly healthy person on a nice sunny day.
