What do they mean, "might have broken his leg?" Is this another quantum thing? Without opening the box, we cannot determine if alcohol was or was not or is or is not involved, in this or a parallel universe? It's way too early in the morning for physics.

By any chance could alcohol have been involved?


As a physics professional, I can say that Heisenberg would say, MEH!

key quote: deputies believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.


He was jus getting his wood on,.,,sure!

Boating and drinking are rarely found together.

Somehow, Jethro Tull's SKATING AWAY song comes to mind.

He must have just watched Hangover 2.

I've driven boats for years, and very rarely have I had to worry about hitting a tree. That's why boats drive better on water. Now if we could just replace the interstate system with canals we could end the scourge of tree's jumping in front of motorists.

He must've been totally alert and in full control of his senses ...

I mean ... it takes a really strong try to hit a tree with a boat ...

You're supposed to yield right-of-way to trees on both land and water. Some people just don't know the rules of the road.

Instead of passing port to port, sounds like he was drinking it.

I drove my Dad's aluminum Lone Star completely up on the bank one time, but I was only 13 and completely sober. I didn't hit any trees.
