American Dies on Mt Everest

American Dies on Mt Everest
The thing that gets me ---

There's a motherfucking line - queued up to the summit.....


Hey Ed Hillary - what the hell do you think is so special of an experience - that you have to wait in line?

I won't wait in line to see a fricken movie. I sure as hell ain't waiting in line to see if something will kill me......

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I find it rather selfish of the people who have young children at home. Shouldn’t being around for your kids be more important to you than scaling Everest? I understand why people do it, but how can that be worth the very real risk of devastating your immediate family? Do that shit when you’re single.

I didn't get married until I was in my mid-30s because the job was inherently dangerous. So, yeah, I agree with you.

People dying on Everest isn't really news - there are far better ways to die.

Seems that climbing Everest is a bit of a banality these days.
God thinks it's fun to confuse primates. Larsen's God!

Not to mention we’re turning it into a landfill. And, a sewer.

Yeah, but none of the Caesars were stupid enough to climb Mount You're Gonna Die Up Here.

IIRC Everest isnt even a very hard one. Amongst the famous 8000ers (meters of course) there are a buncha much harder ones. Particularly K2 seems to be a real bitch, and its like only 200m less than Everest. Who cares if you are operating on 39% oxygen or 38%? Huh This is clearly a *wannabe climber* problem.

Not sure about that. But they, mostly, didn't like snow very much.

Even if they did have runners bring snow down from the mountains. Cool job. Hehe
