Posted on 11/29/2012 5:45:33 PM PST by Daffynition
Mount Everest has claimed the lives of over 216 known mountain climbers in recorded history. The area above 26,000 feet is called the Death Zone, where breathing fresh oxygen from canisters is necessary for all but the most experienced climbers. The atmospheric pressure is about a third of that at sea level, so there is about one third the amount of oxygen to breathe. The air is so thin, recovery of bodies is impossible. As such, many victims lay where they took their last breath.

* May the climbers who have perished on Mount Everest rest in peace. *
When you climb up, throw the bodies off the mountain... use a parachute for the females
Like a battlefield site, preserved forever in the chill air, casualties on display to serve as a warning to all who attempt the climb.
It’s an ascent attempted by many semi-qualified climbers these days, but it can go very, very bad and very, very quickly.
You want to know why I climb mountains? Because they’re there, that’s why! That and my stupid jet pack won’t work.
Why a parachute for the female?
SHEET. I’ve buried more than that in your backyards.
We were making the final ascent when suddenly, the Abominable Snowman jumped out and grabbed one of the Sherpas and tore him in half! Thinking quickly, I immediately dropped to my hands and knees and began to imitate the only known predator of the Abominable Snowman....The Black Angus Cow! I mooed at the blighter a couple of times and started chewing my cud. He immediately retreated into a cave. Surprisingly, half of the Sherpa was still alive and you know the old saying, “Half a Sherpa is better than none”, so we continued on fighting the Spitting Cobras and Crocodiles.
Your story sounds photoshopped.
And ate near as many as was buried, hey?
Bighead need a big meal!
I wondered why the backyard was all tore up. I thought it was the cable company. I guess this means I won’t be watching Cartoon Network after all.
I am not a young man. I graduated from high school in 1961. One of my classmates climbed Everest in 2010. He’s in great shape for a guy my age.
To soothe my conscience. :p
The Cartoon Network. Who the F*** wants to watch anything from the MSM?
Only the young ones. Finger licking good.
One likes to be a gentleman of course, but when push comes to shove if I don't get a parachute ain't nobody does!
Why, my story is as true as Obama saying he did everything he could for the Americans in Benghazi! You have besmirched me and Susan Rice’s honor! And you know what they say about Susan Rice’s honor.....she has as much honor as Saudi Arabia has Mormon missionaries.
Maybe someone can built a zipline from the top?
You graduated from high school in 1961? That makes you what, about 30? I would have graduated from high school but math kept tripping me up.
