    Damn, RIP Apetor. Vodkahhhhh sales plummet

    The Norwegian hiking, ice skating, and overall venturing with vodka dude has apparently died at 57. A legend in a little corner of this crazy world. I can’t drink, but I’d do an ice cold shot of vodka in his honor if I could.

    Oh man, so sad.

    SkiBall - kindly consider editing your post so it's just a link to the video. I really enjoyed his videos but didn't need to see his lifeless body.

    Oh man. Loved that guy. Shared his videos with lots of people. Actually went back and forth a couple times with him in the Youtube comments, kinda oddly made me feel like I almost knew him. Apparently he fell though the ice? Is that true?

    Judgemental pricks don't need facts, dude.

    He was odd, yet oddly relatable. or maybe not so odd at all.

    I enjoyed his vids. Sad his art was cut short.
    I'd toast Tor Eckhoff in the halls of Valhalla, as readily as I toast his memory now.

    What you said. Skol Apetor. A bright crazy light in an increasing insane world. I hope he left me the Volvo 142.

    When he took a big toot of vodka and then ice skated directly into a hole in the ice, only to crawl out and have another toot, I didn't cry but I'll be damned if I wasn't inspired to try a little harder

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    RIP. When I saw the OP thread, I immediately thought fuk the cancer got him already. Was a bit surprised to hear he died doing one of his activities. He was one unique kook who lived life his way. Skol brother!!
