    Default Loss of another Everest Climber

    Wow, this is depressing, but he did make the summit before going blind.

    Very sad. Must be hard for the Sherpas to have to leave somebody to die.

    That is a sad story. I suppose when one attempts to climb one of those peaks, there has to be a certain amount of awareness that there is a good chance you won't come back home. For some, the chance to stand on top of the world may be worth it.

    Kind of like what those who will be the first to travel to Mars will deal with internally.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!
