When Can A Jet Ski Become Dangerous?

Whenever you are at the beach and you see people jet skiing, you often think to yourself “It must be fun to ride a jet ski.” You catch the wind, you enjoy the speed, and you get to see the ocean in a whole different way. But, skiing is not that easy. As enticing as it may seem, it is very dangerous especially if you are inexperienced.

Jet propulsion powers jet skis and one can only have control over it if there is power. There is no braking system in the machine. It is like a water motorcycle with applications of boating. However, it is still handled differently. You have to have the fitness to be able to control such machine. If you have little experience in such, do not try dangerous maneuvers.

Jet skis can be toppled easily when the sea is at its rough state. Plus, it offers little protection in case of collision. An accident may instantly cause death. When jet skiing, you must consider the number of people skiing and how experienced they are in handling the machine. It is important to keep in mind that a simple collision may lead to a very serious injury.

Accidents at sea due to jet skis often happen on places where it is not a strict policy to have a license before you are allowed to ski. In some popular tourist destinations, there is no strict reinforcement of having a license. Operators rent out skis to anyone who desires to ski and all they give are basic instructions on how to use the machine. Operators who conduct detailed trainings or lessons for skiing, the way Tony Horton gives trainings or lessons about fitness, before they let skiers go out to sea are very few.

To avoid unnecessary deaths and accidents, we must be careful in handling a jet ski.

At least we can be thankful that the polls don’t determine the college basketball champion.

BCS Every Game Counts

espnX

The people that voted a 3 loss Texas team #2 over the previously unanimous #1 Ohio State team should lose their votes and be banished to watching the Golf Channel and listening to karaoke for eternity.

I don’t really have a problem with moving a 1 loss Kansas team over OSU despite the fact that they are not nearly as good a team as the Bucks. Kansas proved that by promptly losing to unranked 9 loss Kansas State. K State won for only the 2nd time since Moses was a young boy.

But what were the voters thinking by putting a 3 loss Texas team #2? Maybe the question should be are the voters capable of thought?

Texas lost at home to #4 Pitt then to an unranked USC on their floor. On Jan. 8th they lost at home again to #9 UConn. My question is this. How would you feel if like the joke of a “system” like the BcS decided the NCAA Basketball Champion?

The champion will be decided on the field just like every national college championship for every sport except BcS division football. But it will be interesting to see how the pin head voters pick a #1 team now that Kansas choked. Do you want to bet they put a 3 loss Texas team #1?

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.
