(Daily Star)   If you're planning on climbing Mount Everest, you better bring at least one empty garbage bag to the mountain and leave with at least one full one. We're still waiting to hear if dead climbers are considered 'garbage'   ( dailystar.co.uk) divider line

sethen320: I don't climb mountains so maybe there's something I'm missing here. Is it a hipster-type thing where a mountain is only cool until everyone else thinks so?

To be fair it hasnt been cool to climb mount Everest in 51 years.  And even then there were people going up it, they just werent white so nobody counted them.

If I had unlimited funds I would install a weather proof gondola there and charge $10 bucks a pop for anybody who wanted to go up and down in a few hours in a catered and heated room with windows.  A quick trip with beer and corndogs, nothing else.  Run the entire operation with local sherpas and train them to maintain everything so they keep making money, hell more money than they were pulling in before.

Sell T-shirts and crap out of concession stands.  Also hire them to arange all the frozen bodies into giant letters that spell out "Welcome to the Everest Experience" on the side of the mountain for the tourist flood.

//as long as China keeps getting the same paychecks I dont think they will care.

Actually, many of the live climbers are garbage as well.

When the line to get onto Disney's Expedition Everest ride is shorter than the line to get up the Hilary Step you know all you need to know
