    When you “wipe out” while skiing it is either “head first or feet first”. When you approach a tree whether it is on the “bunny slope” or “black diamond” there is that split second or seconds to choose how you eat it.
    I have never heard of anyone going “chest first”. Bullshit, I am calling Bullshit. What he knew or what he was going to disclose hit him in the “chest”.
