v.— «According to the press accounts, many snowmobile drivers like to “skip” their machines over open water.…A snowmobile cannot change direction while “skipping”—it can only go in a straight line. If a snowmobile doesn’t make it across the open water, it sinks. It only takes one second for a snowmobile to sink to the bottom of a lake or river.» —“Skip the snowmobile skipping: Stay clear of thin, open ice” by Thor Science Buzz Jan. 16, 2007.
