a German man who went missing nearly 40 years ago

...and then the Chinese man jumps out and yells, "Supplies!"

I'm pretty sure the champion is still Otzi.

Not a missing white girl? I thought that was the only person we looked for.
 
2021-11-05 4:54:33 PM  
Wouldn't that be former champion?

It's like my grandma used to always say: "You can always tell a German, but you can't tell him much!"

Was he a writer? Did Annie Wilkes find him?

My German friend has parents who think they are indestructible explorers. They are not. Every time a news story comes up where dead Germans are discovered (this guy, the poor folks who died in Death Valley, the canoeists crushed by the glacier, etc), he sends them the story, in the possibly-fruitless hope that he can deter them from doing something truly stupid.

If he was a missing German man found in Argentina, I'd be really concerned

One does not simply run into Modor.

In terms of "person going missing" and "remains discovered", 40 years isn't even close to the champion. If I remember right it's 100+ years.

Fireproof: I'm pretty sure the champion is still Otzi.


I would argue Otzi doesnt count, no records of him being missing. If that doesn't matter, there are longer than Otzi.

They found him because the ice/snow pack he was buried in finally melted. More will be found as the planet warms up.

"Nobody reported on this guy because he wasn't a beautiful, white woman."

Oh my lord.

Uh, hello, 40 years ago is clearly some time in the 1950s or 1960s.

Kind of disappointed it not about some guy living in a cave thinking the Korean War is still hot.

I had a German girlfriend who's parents were the same.
They immigrated to Canada to be explorers and live in the only cabin on a lake in Northern Ontario.
Her dad survived getting shot going over the Berlin Wall in 1970, so he had that boost of confidence.

The first time my girlfriend took me to meet her parents we drove 1 and a half hours into the woods, then took an ATV 2km to a lake and then paddled across the lake. Half way across the lake my girlfriend shouted out something in German and three black bears came running down to the dock(I'm freaking out the whole time). When we got closer to the dock I realized that the bears were Newfie dogs.

Her dad told me that the dogs they fought the bears.

I saw the movie, and nothing is obscure on Fark. Fun trivia: she was the body of Jessica Rabbit.

"But once again, the investigation at that time wasn't completed due to authorities shifting their attention to fight wildfires as well as high volumes of snow."

A guy in a canoe was crushed by a glacier? How slow was he paddling??

I used to manage a campground. One day someone came running into the office breathless to tell me a small child was walking a bear through the campground on a leash. I informed him that was Sadie walking her Newfoundland Brodie, and that dog was completely under control by that six year old girl, and would do absolutely anything she asked of him. Also, if you start drowning in that river right there, that dog is going to rush out there and drag you to shore.
/that wasn't the only time that happened. They were regulars.

Yes. The article said "nearly 40 years ago" and I didn't feel like typing out nearly.  So I used the squiggly line.

Maybe writers get paid by the word (or flat fees based on tranches like 500-750 = $X)?

I think the original sentiment was essentially "Whoa... 1983 was really almost 40 years ago?" not that the number was inaccurate.
