Not bad, but you're still a spectator. Gotta die doing something!
So does TD!
An estimated 154,050 Americans are expected to die from lung cancer in 2018, accounting for approximately 25 percent of all cancer deaths. The number of deaths caused by lung cancer peaked at 159,292 in 2005 and has since decreased by 6.5 percent to 148,945 in 2016
certainly pales in the face of 11 deaths on Everest. So I guess no matter how careful the path we chose, the end destination remains the same?
Every climber should be required to carry a bucket of dirt to the top, so that the next person will have to try harder as the height will always increase as long as there are climbers to climb.
Time to shut this thread down! Who want to mention Bigfoot?
EDIT: Of course! The Yeti!!! What's his take on all of this?
Maybe he's to blame for all the deaths up there rather than the conditions?
Or he's thinking, "I will eat well this season!"
bigfoot this,bigfoot that, whats wrong with little feat?
That still sounds too cold for my liking. I might visit if they bore through the centre of the mountain and install a heated elevator with a large screen TV fitted to keep me entertained during the ride to the top.
Then again I can just look at it on my laptop from the comfort of my own Sofa.
A 24/7 live stream from the top of Everest could solve all these problems. Maybe station Don Lemon up there permanently to relay the experience and give hourly weather updates in real time.
everyone shoud have to wear a michelin tire man suit, cause the world has too many sharp edges...
FYI, did you know he has a name? Bibendum.
I don't care if people are stupid enough to die while mountain climbing. Give them Darwin awards, AFAIC. I want them to stop littering the mountain with their bodies, oxygen cans, and other trash. Pretty selfish, if you ask me.
And no, I'm not joking. If you're gonna risk your life for your own ego, at least have the decency to not leave a mess for others to clean up. It's next to impossible to rescue and recover climbers, and clean up all the trash on Everest. Not to mention the environmental impact.
It's a tough call. My preference is sea level, like right to the edge... the beach. You don't see many climbers in Speedos now, do ya'?
Maybe the gov should release a Colony of Polar Bears up there? They could clean the place up, keep the number of climbers down and make it a real adventure instead of the theme park it's becoming.
Oops, I screwed up here, sorry.
Bunch of issues in my head all mixing together.
Among others, a friend who just got brain damage from an OD and my thinking is a little toxic right now.
I will try to tame it down and pay closer attention...
Yep - the shark's fin peak of Meru, is one of, if not the hardest climb in the world. Conrad & Co. crashed and burned bigtime on the first attempt. Most of the climb is on a vertical cliff. I saw part of the film on it, and it was quite the trip seeing the 3 climbers trying to sleep in a tent that's basically roped off of/pitoned into a cliff.
I used to rock climb when I was younger, and wanted to seriously mountain climb, but what can I say? No money to move where you can do some serious climbing.
Whaddya mean? We've got Rib Mt
Seriously though, it amazes me that every single year it seems some dumb kid dies at Devil's Lake, scaling the bluffs
''At least 11 have died this year climbing Mt Everest.'' - Just wait for the casualty figures when SpaceX and Virgin start doing their space tourism flights!
I can see it now: their space crafts collide mid flight; one plummets onto Mt. Everest, crushing a queue of climbers, the other spirals into Klatch Coffee in San Francisco, crushing someone just as he was about to sip his $75 cup of coffee. Oh the humanity!
