Aoi Thanks for posting this. Having read Into Thin Air as a teenager, this...was even more amazing than it was on its own.
Dicknuts It is sad that they died. It's touching that he called his wife while he was dying. But what a waste. I understand challenging oneself, and pitting yourself against nature and such for a rush or to prove something. Unless there's a bunch of gold up there or something that I don't know about.
Dicknuts Well, I guess that's the same drive that keeps the human race achieving, while simultaneously getting us killed. Idunnoman.
memedumpster We're all born pitted against nature, nature having made that decision for us. May as well take the fight to it occasionally.
