Climbing Mt. Dumbass

People are dying on Mt. Everest standing in line, like a damn Disney ride, to get to the summit. Is Everest now the ultimate stupid game?

Another one died just yesterday.

Christopher Kulish, a 62-year-old Boulder attorney, died Monday at a camp below the summit during his descent.

About half a dozen climbers died on Everest last week.

Hundreds of dumb turds are paying sherpas to basically carry thier fat asses up the mountain, and some of them are winning the stupidest of prizes.

Stupid people put others at risk with dangerous activities .

Th sad part is they think they are doing something others cannot do only to find they are lined up waiting for their picture perfect moment.

I hope their families go to visit them because they can’t move their fat asses off the mountain once they drop dead. Pretty stupid if you ask me. Instead of being buried with your family you’re now bury the top Mt. Dumbass.

they should just make one big giant tombstone for all of them.

Here Lies Stupid.

This is a fascinating fixation. The amount of garbage and corpses there would make it a macabre adventure and a green earth proponents worst nightmare.

I have nothing but contempt for anyone climbing Everest now.

:sheep:

Ego and adrenaline have serious impacts on common sense.

No need to bury anyone as the snow quickly covers them. A plank in the snow for over 300 stupid people: Here lies stupid people with over 300 of their best friends they never knew. Friends frozen here for all eternity, on certain days when the wind blows a certain way you can see the stupid look on their face as the stupid is uncovered for another moment in time for all to see what stupid has looked like over the years. It really doesn’t change much as frozen is frozen.

Do, you’re saying in Nepal the height of stupidity is measured in feet above sea level?

I can say I have been to base camp, but was never inclined to scale it’s peak! The weather conditions are so unpredictable that it can change at any time making any climb a perilous endeavour! I remember seeing these hipsters withdrawn at their camp because of muscle cramps and being tired. It was like watching them being demoralized because their bodies betrayed them as they would retreat to inside of their tents to sleep. These were mostly college aged people I witnessed being defeated, who were part of a clean up crew tasked with cleaning up the Oxygen tanks and garbage left behind by previous climbers. So for a 60 year old to want to climb Everest the odds certainly are not in their favor!

Now this is just stupid. People think that a lot of expensive gear, and some poor bastard carrying it, is going to save them from one of the harshest locations on the planet. If athletic climbers have trouble with this mountain, pudgy 60-somethings who only climb in and out of their golf carts shouldn’t be shocked when death comes knocking.

Everest should be a world heritage site, and left alone. Off limits to idiots. It looks like a landfill from top to bottom, because of all the trash scattered by climbers. Shameful.

When I see a world heritage sign I want to tear the sign down and melt it down. Screw the world.

The point I want to make is; there are just places that should be left alone, world heritage or not. But if making it to the top of Everest results in a good story that can get you laid, I guess climbing has value.

If the locals want to make a buck off of assets within their Jurisdiction and it’s okay by their laws I’d prefer that over granting any outsider police powers to stop them.

You can’t make / force the locals leave stuff alone from the outside without subverting their Jurisdiction.

Those needing rescue should be required to pay and those that die their estate should pay the total cost of all efforts on their behalf , perhaps these morons will think twice .

Not if they are buried by local traditions! They chop their bodies up and feed them to the Eagles! It’s considered a high honour!

So there’s that. High Honors. We have cadaver farms here in the USA. I don’t know if being nibbled on by a possum could be considered a High Honor.

It is a Buddhist tradition that has been in practice for thousands of years in that part of the world!
