And I thought of that movie right away too. :-b

Buttercup: And to think, all that time it was your cup that was poisoned.
Man in Black: They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder.

And the answer is..... GERMANY!!!

Man water-skis behind cruise liner

A German man water-skied behind a cruise liner to win a bet.

German man Dirk Gion water-skied behind a cruise liner to win a bet /Europics

The stunt was recorded by a German TV show after a viewer wrote in disputing an earlier claim on the show that it would be theoretically possible to water-ski behind an ocean-going cruise ship.

Reporter Dirk Gion, 40, took up the challenge "to prove it could be done".

He was brought up to the correct velocity by a speedboat and then switched over to a line pulled by the 575 foot cruiser MS Deutschland.

Mr Gion managed to stay afloat behind the vessel as it travelled at 17 knots for over five minutes.



I know this was a tricky one - water-skiing, cruise liner... it screams Florida. The fact is that you guys are getting too smart for me, so I have to get trickier and trickier.


Special thanks to suppasonic for this story! ;-D

I sure was. Everyone just go with the opposite of what I pick.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
