Skip to comments.Over 200 Dead Bodies on Mount Everest
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.
Sherpa Lining is people!!...
Whenever I had gloves like that, they would always get wet and suck.
At least Susan Rice can grow hair.
Poor old Mishmush....they made him into gloves. Well, you have to hand it to him.
Bill and Hillary have more victims than that.
What Would Hannibal Lector Do
Neat ant farm. Is that bleached flour instead of dirt?
Seriously,....surviving ‘mount obawmuh’ may be an equally dangerous experience.
And she walks like Dick Butkus but I could still take her in five rounds after she wore out her hands on my face.
“Explains how they make these:”
Well, first they collect the dead females that were parachuted off of Everest. You see, they are made by Sherpas and not of Sherpas.
Which leads me to believe there is some conspiracy going on.
Now there’s a job for Harry Reid....deboning pork rectums while he’s inverted. I see they also get inspected....that’s Nancy Pelosi’s job.
She DOES walk like Dick Butkus! Thanks for pinning that down. But if she got past your knees after five, hey, what?
Sometimes you have to go down to go up.
But when the Messiah comes (and i don’t mean Obamessiah) they’ll be closer to Heaven than the rest of us!
Of all the awful headlines to read, this is one of the funniest threads I’ve seen all year!
More dead bodies in the pet cemetery in my backyard
Don’t worry. Global warming will soon melt Mount E’s snow and the bodies will all slide down to basecamp.
this thread is humorous ping
The dead must be cold up there!
Murphy comes to mind.
Which reminds...the McRib is on sale.
Read ‘Into thin air’ and was fascinated.
You have to respect the mountain.
Well, that and fork over a heft price to get into this ‘club’ and then that’s it. Seemingly not a lot of background, just the dough, and you’re in.
What’s the point? To brag you climbed Mt Everest? Or to have your relatives brag you’re buried on top of Mt Everest.
Isn’t it funny. It’s named Mt. EVER REST...
I say find another hobby.
That made me so nervous!
