Orcaella Brevirostris's Curls and Curves

The Winter Olympics are on, accompanied by the clatter of skates, swoosh of skis and..the silent sweeping of brooms?

Curling as an olympic sport is a little hard to understand. For that matter, curling as a sport is hard to understand.

Skiing though, is awesome, even when there isn't enough snow on Solang's slopes and you have to go up into the mountains for some off-piste action. Here's Sanjay, former India under-19 champion, skiing down a meadow above Beaskund.

*off-piste action ~= eating large quantities of salted dry fruit

Definitions of what is sport will continue to change.

True, Anil P.

And of course, there is the
curling scene in Help! to make curling acceptable, (although slightly fiendish) to me.
