I have skied for over 40 years (geeze..., I used leather boots in my first ski lessons in 1968, but buckles had just come in, ha!), and I can see that GP's version of the accident could occur on a bunny/training slope for beginners if everybody is going slow and nobody's looking out. It happened to me as a kid, and other kids with me. If MrS was going fast, the lithe GP would have been really popped and we'd be hearing more about pain and suffering. Instead, they just went from slow near one another, to very slow and entangled, before they fell over together <modsnip: not victim friendly> Yeah, his life changed: he became angrier, travelled less, and couldn't get it up for sure, as he was paying all those lawyer fees from his 401k to keep this case going for 7 years.
I only know of GP from her crazy mag and vag theories you read about, but I never saw her in a TV show or movie. Doesn't matter to me. I saw her testimony. She speaks clearly, understands skiing, stays on topic, answers directly, and has patience and poise with the insanity that is all around her in that courtroom. And, she's supported by the only documentation made at the time. (btw, if she wants to spend $8k on ski school for her kids, it's her right and her business only. This is the USA gosh darn it - self-evident..., unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness...). [Edit that...more than 50 years, phew. <modsnip>]
