That just goes to show: 

When the Grim Reaper has you on his to-do list, he’s gonna get you no matter where you are.

The sad thing is that Final Destination 3 *IS* being made.  We’re doomed, I tell you! Dooooooomed!

What kind of an asshole goes, “Wow, I was so lucky to narrowly avoid a horrible tragedy that has touched millions.  I’ve gotta take my luck and hit that wicked powder.” If only he’d taken the drive to Vegas, he’d be passed out in a pool of his own urine under a dirty Vegas hooker right now.

Sometimes some snacks and a warm toddy at the Summit Restaurant between double diamond mogul runs is the only real cure for the grief he was obviously feeling.

I would hand over my life savings ($3.65, half a pack of gum, and a coupon for a free McDonald’s small fries) to have known what this guy’s final thoughts were as he saw Mother Nature barreling down on him.  I imagine, amongst the terror, he had to be thinking, “You have GOT to be fucking kidding me.”

I bet there was someone who cancelled his snowboarding vacation to take a job in Thailand, thus missing the avalanche and catching the tsunami.
