It's the greatest mountain in the world...for me to poop on!
2003-05-29 11:33:24 AM  
He calls his likey.
2003-05-29 11:34:40 AM  
What a shiatty article.
2003-05-29 11:34:45 AM  
That's just a fun word to say.

Also in the list of fun words to say I'd have to add

Though, these 5 words should never be combined. eww.

"Did someone say POOP?!?!?"

Can you imagine how bad it sucks to be the dooky sherpa? That has to be rough at the highschool reunion when people ask you what you do for a living and you have to tell them that you carry other peoples poopy down a mountain.

Why do people crap on Mt. Everest? Same reason people climb it.

Because it's there.

Grim, but good read
2003-05-29 11:38:13 AM  
Crapped twice? Lucky guy. Too much pizza lately for me...
2003-05-29 11:38:16 AM  
Well it's a good thing Everest climbers are handling our environmental problems now... Phew, I thought we were in trouble there for a second!
2003-05-29 11:39:32 AM  
"We need to give Everest a rest."
2003-05-29 11:39:45 AM  
8,000-foot (24,380-meter)? I think the high altitude made his math screwy.
2003-05-29 11:40:14 AM  
ok, who broke the interweb?
2003-05-29 11:40:20 AM  
If you like Into Thin Air, read Into The Wild. It is a quick read about a different event written by Jon Krakauer.

" I only (defecated) twice at Camp Four "

greatest. quote. ever.

I'd like to squeege the moist muffin of most redheads.

See the words can be put together creatively.

This, friends, is what now passes for journalism.
2003-05-29 11:42:33 AM  
As I said yesterday, what Hillary was really saying is to give the mountain a "rest-stop", not a "rest." I think he was mis-quoted.

" I only (defecated) twice at Camp Four "

That gives me an idea for a t-shirt...

I've been to Everest (not summiting attempts) twice, I don't know what the japanese lady is biatching about. Human waste isn't a problem, we shiat in buckets and piss in barrels which are carried down the mountain by sherpas. You pay a HUGE amount of money as a deposit against fines before you get your climbing permit.

Its all the little bits of plastic and miscellaneous type stuff that is hard to keep under control. It's kind of neat and kind of upsetting to find a candy wrapper from some decades-lost japanese expedition frozen in place. The really upsetting thing is running across the frozen bodies and equipment that slowly come down the icefall -- guys in 1960s all-wool gear that fell down a crevasse before i was born and are just now surfacing.

Who gives a shiat?

Yeah, but when they laugh, you can tell them you make four-tenths of a U.S. penny per pound!
2003-05-29 11:47:50 AM  
Wierd, I can remember crapping at least 20 times at camp 4. Altitude must affect people in different ways.
2003-05-29 11:48:08 AM  
He said, "I've been three times to Mount Everest and I only (defecated) twice at Camp Four," the 8,000-foot (24,380-meter) last stop before the summit.

8000 m = 24380 feet

2003-05-29 11:48:22 AM  
He should've said, "I only defecated twice at camp number two"?, i'm retarded.
2003-05-29 11:50:03 AM  
Y.M.I.G.S.T.C Nice timing!
2003-05-29 11:50:41 AM  
Bah. Even that's wrong:

8000 meter = 26,247 feet
8000 yard = 24,000 feet.

They need a new mathematician. The one they have is broken.
2003-05-29 11:52:29 AM  
So number one on the agenda was the problems of number two's ?

1 million liters of urine.

That equates to 88,000 cases of beer.

Should be renamed University of Everest, party college.

1 million liters of urine.

It does in the US.
2003-05-29 11:53:38 AM  
Ah yes, there's nothing like taking a pee outside. I do it every chance I get.
2003-05-29 11:55:31 AM  
1 million liters of urine equals one hell of a lot of yellow snow.
2003-05-29 12:01:00 PM  

The world is my urinal.

One of the great things about being a guy.
2003-05-29 12:01:10 PM  
i couldnt watch this scene in the jackass movie, it made me sick.... then again, it made him sick too....hhhmmmm how ironic
2003-05-29 12:02:13 PM  
This if off topic, but What happened to the Jenna Bush photoshop contest?
2003-05-29 12:02:41 PM  
"there's nothing like taking a pee outside"

So true. Just wish my gf and neighbors understood.
2003-05-29 12:06:56 PM  
Are the woodland creatures required to carry a port-a-potty too??? This is a really shiatty thread.
2003-05-29 12:07:54 PM  
Still no cure for cancer, right?

I've been to the mountaintop... I've pooped on the mountaintop...
2003-05-29 12:17:11 PM  
did anyone else notice that the photoshop contest for Jenna Bush just dissapeared like a fart in a hurricane? what ever happened to free speech?
2003-05-29 12:18:07 PM

That reminds me, i just saw a PBS special where a bunch of guys were climbing the biggest mountain in Antarctica, and they had Jon Krakauer with them. Wow, what a major league asshole. Talk about self righteous pricks. The guide they had with them had climbed the particular mountain NINETEEN times. Jon Krakauer launched into some story about how he used a guide ONCE and it almost got him killed, so this guide could basicaly f off. Well, the whole point was that they were trying to get this NOVA camera crew to the top, and Krakauer ditched 'em saying "you'll never make, I'm going on without you". Well, they did, Krakauer took some f'ed up route he knew nothing about, having never been there, and at the end finally conceded the guide they had with them was probably the best skilled and most carefully planning climber he'd ever met.
2003-05-29 12:26:25 PM  
Yeah...where's Jenna?

i have read both Krakauer books. they are definitely a good read. i even have the special edition 'Into Thin AIr' in hardback with great photos taken of the climb. On the other hand, i saw an interview of him on OLN and he IS a major asshole. Thinks he is God's gift or something. By the end i just wanted to punch him.
