I have no karma, would dogma be ok?

Subby needs a basic understanding of metaphysics. Karma is not something that can be sent, it is something that you accrue on your own.

Actually, it's quite a hike, and I'd bet they are hungry, so probably best to send some shawarma.

If he's really hungry and tired and needs a lift you could send a llama.

Aren't you a Debbie Downer. I have some left over Karma and will gladly share.  If you want to quibble over semantics then just send money

Sorry to burst your bubble of pie-in-the-sky karma sharing, but  Abbey is absolutely correct. One can neither give nor receive karma as an object might be given or received. You may  wishfor someone to gain good karma, but thinking that karma is a commodity to be traded is ridiculous. The transacting of karma is between an individual and the universe.

Sorry to bust your bubble but karma doesn't exist. You are trying to sound smart about a stupid fairy tale.

Perhaps karma does not exist  for you,have you ever considered that? Look at Saddam Hussien, for instance. That guy got all kinds of bad karma by disemboweling two puppies every night and wearing them as bedroom slippers for eighteen years. He ends up hiding in a hole in the ground for several weeks prior to being hanged by the neck until dead, dead, dead.  Karma, baby, pure and simple.

I've been following the exploits of this guy...Dave Hahn, or as his fellow Taos Ski Patrol buddies call him, "Super Dave".

Certified badass.

14 Everest summits. Most for any non-Sherpa climber.

Wow, You guys take your comment threads a little to seriously. What did I mistakenly walk into a room of philosophy professors. my bad.. please accept my apology.

You have to admire and commend when an old timer takes it all the way to base camp

Hope he does well, and I wish him good luck, but why do this? It's not like he's going up to get something that can't be found at sea level. This does nothing to better humanity or science. With today's technology climbing a mountain is easier than it was in the 50s and a waste of time and energy. Can't these people find a truly useful endeavor that hasn't been done yet and will actually serve to do more than a physical feat that, in the scope of everything, is minimally effective? I won't use the common phrase bandied about on Fark to describe what I think of this type of behavior.

The hike to base camp is not too bad, biggest thing is to take an extra day of rest a couple times on the way to acclimatize, like once in Namche and another farther up at Lobuche, the biggest problems come from the yaks really, just stand top side when they pass coming down and don't get knocked downward

Make sure your buddy goes up Kala Patthar subby, it's just below BC and an easy 1 day no gear climb that will get him the best views of the mtn he can get since the view from BC is pretty much shiat

Subbys friend is 55 and only going to base camp.  the real shait is his friend who is 67 and if he summits will be the oldest person to do all 7 summits on all seven continents.

Mentioning karma and climbing Everest in the same sentence is funny. I don't believe in spiritualist nonsense, but wouldn't contributing to the destruction of the mountain and it's surrounding environment bring bad karma? Everest has become a high altitude trash pile strewn with corpses. The only reason to climb it is so you can pound your chest and be macho (even though the porters you hire do all the real work). BTW where do all the exorbitant climbing fees go? Oh right. Good karma indeed.

I think going to basecamp might harm a llama, I will have to ask a llama farmer.
Wouldn't a yak be calmer than a llama?

Maybe, but "yak" doesn't really rhyme with "shawarma."

Also, having spent some good time in Nepal, the yaks there? They can be pretty damn irascible.

Old Chief Scott and AbbeySomeone are absolutely wrong.

You can send and receive karma. I, through my constant attempts at doing good and accruing excess karma, I am flush with it to the point that I have plenty to spare. Send me 5 dollars is a SASE and I will send you 50 units of positive karma. For a 15 dollar donation, I will include a spiritual prayer cloth which can help you harness the karma of Everest itself. (Did you know that Mt. Everest is a global power spot?) For a 60 dollar donation, I will send you 100 units of positive karma and a USB memory stick with the complete works of the Buddha!

Act today before the karma runs out!
