If you ever really want to get me mad, just bring up this phrase or something comparable in a business
conversation. ‘Thats the way we have always done it.’ Could there ever be a worse reason for doing
Do it because its the right thing. Do it because its the only thing. Do it because its all you know how to do or
because its all you can afford. But please, dont do it because its the way you have always done it.
I've been here way back in the late 80's. I still remember looking at the jump, this was during the spring, and thinking, "I'm glad other people like to do this." I also remember there is a great restaurant near the Ski Jump where four of us had a great dinner with a wonderful view of Oslo.
The Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Olso was first used way back 1892 and has since been extended 14 times to the current height of 60 metres. The 1952 Olympic games were hosted here.
In the satellite photo you can see the slope of the jump in its shadow and, as the photo was taken during summer, you can see grass growing on the lower part of the slope. The landing at the bottom fills with the melted snow and apparently people go swimming there when the weather is nice.
