PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

44. "RE: A tribute to Mika"
I think if it had been me and any one of my friends I would have expected to be shoved probably with a comment of "Your stupidity is not going to cost me 1,000,000$". ... No one was going to die going down the slide. It's not like jumping out of a plane or mountain climbing where the potential for injury exists. It's a slide.

Actually, that is very much not true. For your typical water slide, the slope is so low, that the only real potentials for injury would be whatever hit the hardest on the slide as you fell from being pushed. After that, it would become your standard ride down the chute. However, the slide they were on is very different. These slides (many water parks have a similar version) are almost straight down. On a 70' slide, the curve from vertical to horizontal will start about 40' down. But for that 40' down, you travel horizontally about 5'. Normal slides, the slope is just the opposite. As for the chute itself, it is very narrow and the sides are low. There is a reason they tell you to go down flat on your back with arms and legs crossed. It would not take a lot of shifting of your center of gravity to turn sliding into uncontrolled falling and uncontrolled falling into leaving the chute and falling straight down to the ground. Or in this case, into a shark tank. Now combine that with frantic panic and I wouldn't just not be surprised if Mika got hurt had she been forced down the slide, I would have bet my house she'd get hurt.

Welcome to the boards. Please continue to post. But on this point, I'm afraid you are dangerously wrong.
