Why in the hell play tag with a Great White Shark?
Just shaking my head.
He Ya all, watch this!!
What did they have on Hillary Clinton?
He died as he lived - bragging about stuff no one cares about. RIP
Pointless exercise in ego. “I climbed Mt. Everest.” Yea, well so did some dude in a wheelchair and a guy with prosthetic legs and a 90 year old lady. Hopefully, no guides were harmed in this experiment.
Except for the sherpas, aren't they all foreign climbers?
Destroyed by Russians?
You puts your bets and you takes your chances.
Adios and prayers for your family who have to live with your suicidal notions of risk.
No real sympathy here.
Notwithstanding catastrophic failure of equipment or snow packs causing death, hypoxia causes you to do strange things, such as walking into the void thinking it is a step. They finally found Mallory but others just disappear.
“Pointless exercise in ego. I climbed Mt. Everest.”
You be happier if he was eating a chicken friend steak, clutched his chest and fell over? Made him happy.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
It’s the world’s largest outdoor funeral parlor.
Makes me wonder, just how many bodies are still up there?
Yes, bodies are still there. If you die close to a crack or void, sometimes other climbers will dump your dead body into the hole so things won’t be so gruesome for everyone else. I think this mountain climbing “coolness” of Everest died out 20 years ago. But people still wait in line to do it, risking their lives. Weird.
Yeah, made him happy as he literally stepped over the frozen corpses of climbers who died earlier.
Everest climbers are among the most selfish f***s in the world. I have no respect for them or their pointless endeavor.
Joe: “Hey, it’s freezing cold and extremely dangerous and some of the climbers die and are never found again.”
Jack: “Awesome. Let’s go dude. Here’s my $11,000.”
Somehow I don’t see myself doing this. I love adventuring, but I hate the cold.
There were four new deaths just yesterday. Yikes.
The Wiki article is chilling.
