The video of the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili is a horrible thing to watch, and you'll have to go elsewhere to find a link to it. But, when considered along with the terrible injury suffered in training by American snowboarder Kevin Pearce, Kumaritashvili's death is enough to make any sane person wonder whether or not the line between athletic competition and special-effects stunt work with living human beings isn't becoming painfully blurred.
