Jonathan Smout, 34, was skiing off-piste at the popular winter resort
of Val D'Isere when the accident happened.

Can I have his lift pass?

You sick *******! I like your style. ;o) I suppose we all have to have a

are potentially devastating. Humour is probably the best.

If you ride a motorcycle (as several posters here do), you adopt this
attitude early on.
