An Engineer Learns to Ski

The first time I ever put on downhill skis, I shuffled straight to the lift and, at the instruction of my seatmates, took my first-ever slide as a jump from the chairlift.

I slid, two little sleds on my feet, in an uncontrolled straight line that stopped when I ran out of momentum.

That was the first lesson: little friction, all momentum.
