Man people talk about getting away with murder saying there's no perfect murder but getting someone a trip to everest and trying to kill them on it? THat sounds like the perfect murder to me. 1 the mountain my kill them. 2 any attempt to screw them will probably result in their murder.


E:
Cruises also seem like a good place to kill people.

Also my attic. There are days getting up there feels like climbing Everest with this drat arthritis

Wow I missed 14 pages of the thread.
Have we had our annual influx of "actually you're all monsters for guessing how many people will die" posts yet?

Also: 1 single person will die on Everest this year. Even mountains must rest sometimes.

Yeah there was one "how do you sleep at night" post and the answer is always "in a warm bed with no less than 60 degree weather and access to hot cocoa 24 hours a day"

To show that we aren't completely heartless if be all for setting up patreons for the Sherpas. We can pay them for every rich rear end in a top hat they no longer have to take up the mountain

I can Ladysplain.

The long story is contained within the Discovery show 'Everest:Beyond the Limit' in which walking 'RUFTY TUFTY USA BIKER' stereotype Tim Medvitz attempts to scale Everest. He was in an accident (which iirc was on Sept 11 2001) which the show tells you about at least 3 times a show, and is packed full of metal pins, staples and other stuff, so that makes him SPESHUL. He is climbing with Russell Brice's Himex outfit, regarded as the best on the Mountain. However being an American Stereotype he thinks he knows better than the leader and veteran Brice and frequently ignores his demands to come back and generally pises Brice off with his 'If you can dream it you can do it' attitude which people like Brice are not fans of, especially if it leads to a fatality on the mountain and a spot on Brice's (so-far) spotless 0 Fatalities rate.

Here is a video with his INJURIES montage included which you will see a lot if you watch the show (which is, having said that, is a Good Show)
http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/everest/videos/everest-beyond-the-limit-tim-medvetz/

He's not a BAD GUY, he treats the Sherpas with respect and knows a bit of Nepalese, but, he's the antithesis of everything that Brice is. (edit-oh yeah he got to the top of Everest the next year, breaking his hand in the process and neglecting to tell base camp who surely would have told him to return immediately)
