This shows you what happens when you try to pass someone while racing.

I wish that would have happened when I was running cross-country in HS. I might have finally won a ribbon.

I made it like cars crashing which is symbolic and I didn't want to ruin the surprise :)

Cars crashing, symbolism, the last comes in first. Please explain. Your point escapes me. Unless it doesn't, so what's the surprise? That the best and most competitive wreck themselves while the also-ran takes the race? That it? Encouraging, somewhat. I guess.

GMAN , there's no explanation for people in countries where site like youtube are banned (like me) , i can however access it by either using an anonymizer a bypass proxy server or a VPN , but lets assume i don't have those neither (being the dumb hick i am)

it's generally a good idea to do a little intro before a site , for all i know this could have blown my mind away leading me to pm you , resulting in mutual symbiotic spiritual success , maybe later on i drop for half a cup of sugar?

i too stand on the proverbial soapbox too much , so maybe it's just a rant (love those) , either way , i hope i got my little eentsy weentsy point through .

Australia's Steven Bradbury achieves an unexpected gold medal in the short tack speed skating event, taking advantage of a mistake causing his fellow finalists to fall at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Coming into the five-man final, Steven Bradbury was the rank outsider and as the race progressed his chances looked slimmer with each passing lap. But as the leading quartet rounded the final bend, Lia Jiajun (CHN) tried an over-ambitious overtaking manoeuvre outside Apollo Ohno (USA), sending them both onto the ice and bringing down Mathieu Turcotte (CAN) and Ahn Hyun-soo (KOR) in the process. This left the way clear for a nonplussed Bradbury to cross the line unchallenged and claim the most unexpected of gold medals.

luck is such a funny thing , specially when the aim is used towards achieving success.

interesting wouldn't that then make luck amenable to manipulation?


arbaham & esther (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esther_Hicks) "the hicks" (no pun intended that's their last time) , theirs was the first book I did ever read on this.
