Thread: Fatalities at Everest

  1. #1

    Fatalities at Everest

    I'd often heard the bodies were never removed. Pretty bizarre. All in all not a bad place to park your bones... great view, but probably a little breezy.

    Hey, I think you solved the mystery of 32G's disappearance. One of those guys looked awfully familiar...

    Yeah, a Jet frozen at a thousand feet below the summit, while a guy in a Patriot jersey is perched on top in a hoodie.... sounds all too familiar.

    Hey, if I feel like it's getting close, I'll definitely look into it!

    Maybe get dropped off on a sweet spot near the top with a bunch of pills and booze. I'd try to make it look like I was waving for future climbers!

    Just in case you're wondering, a helicopter rescue for a climber in distress somewhere in the vicinity of Base Camp II will result in about a $60K bill when all is said and done. Don't ask me how I know.

    read the story about one guy who basically nobody could help. he had no guide also. they just had to leave him there to freeze to death.

    It's all the used condoms that are impressive.

    Everest: where the witnesses are frozen and the Sherpas are nervous.
