Let us not forget that not all these stories end up on the positive side. As in my family, sometimes falling into a crevasse means the death penalty.

Hardcore? Sounds like he was just bored. Stuck unhurt halfway down a crevasse with just a camera - what else would you have to do?

reveal101: *takes a bow*


Looks like it's reveal101 for the win. And he's from Canada too. Goddammit. Or, maybe he felt so humiliated about his retarded post that he's pretending to be trolling...yeah, probably not...

Now somebody help me finish this nursery rhyme I'm trying to write:

"Troll, troll, troll your thread, gently down the screen..."

Somebody else probably wrote it already.

Good thing he had a bottle of Bear Grylls' piss to drink or he never would have made it.

lowbrowdotorg: Imagine if he had gotten crushed and they found his body after the thaw, along with his camera...pictures intact.

Eerie.


It's happened before on Mt. Rainier. If I recall correctly 11 people died back in June 1981 due to an avalanche on the Ingraham glacier. They found a camera and developed the film, you used to be able to view the pics at the lodge.

This hole wasn't made for him.

I think it's hilarious that a guy who died by falling down a hole had another hole named after him following said tumble. A cruel reminder to his family and friends of his tragic end, no?

How did he fall through with those balls?

Good thing he was hiking with a partner or he could have kissed his crevasse goodbye.

One of the finer points of the article can be found in the comments section:

sugarmommydatecom (signed in using yahoo)

I know it's worth it to try to date someone online, for you can meet so many people who can potentially become the one for you. Meeting the right one was not an easy job, but I found the one for me on ♥♥♥♥ sugarmommydate, c~0-m♥♥♥♥, a place where you can meet people who are serious about starting a relationship. You can check it out, it's a great site for ones seeking a partner online.


Now that's what I call some fine, timely spam work.

Yes, the story is amazing.

The problem is that the two "heros" did everything they could to put themselves into harms way with absolutely no margin for error. For all their technical climbing ability...they were idiots.

ivars: reveal101 I hope they send him a bill for the rescue costs.

There's aaaaalways one.

Waaaaah! My tax dollars! Waaaah! Personal responsibility! Waaaah! I'm a dick! Waaaah! Waaaah! Waaaah! Taxes! Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

1) This happened in Canada, a civilized country, so your taxes didn't pay dick.

2) Even in Canada, a civilized country, the majority of S&R comes from volunteers. And if the Army gets called in they love it. When they use their choppers it's great training for their troops. This is an excellent use of our tax dollars.

3) The actual amount of your personal taxes that fund the actual costs incurred in these rescues doesn't amount to diddley dick. That Latte' you are sipping probably costs more.

4) Those of us who DO like to hike and climb pay for numerous permits and trail passes every year that help greatly in covering these costs and maintaining our forests and parks, since people don't want their TAXES to go to such nonsense.

In other words: Shut up.

/member of Seattle Mountaineers since 1993
//participated in numerous search and rescue operations over the years... for free...
///sick of selfish ignorant people who don't understand what their taxes get them
////when your daughter runs away or gets kidnapped, perhaps we should send YOU a bill


Unfortunately there's always more than one. Waaahhh!! Don't make me grow up and take responsibility for my own actions. I can do anything that sounds fun and if it's dangerous, you'll bail me out right!?

The link was broken so I didnt get to RTFA, but some of these rescues that use helicopters run into tens of thousands of dollars. I hope he was billed for any government expenses, too, and I'm not even Canadian.
