    Anyone who still plays even one second of that song should be raped with a chainsaw.
    And I realize you can't get paid unless you are Political more often than you are funny, but damn. "Whate guilt".... seriously?
    What a pity. THis IS a serious subject and you are 100% RIGHT about this whole thing. Too bad the message had to get all mucked up, again.

        Man vs food? Really? I love this show but using an old as fuck show for effect is disingenuous.

                      I've been hiking for 30 years. But I have no desire to ever go up Everest or any high or crowded mountain. I used to hike solo up a ridge line where no one barely ever went. 600 meters up over 0.75 km. That is about 2000 feet up in 1.8 miles. That was plenty good for me. I quit going there because I was getting migraines from the radio tower on the top. And also the rattlesnakes almost bit me once or twice. Oh and I got caught up in a lightning storm coming down one time. I saw a double rainbow that day, and my life flash before my eyes.

                        Cheap shot at Art Garfunkel uncool man. Garfunkel did the unique vocal arrangements and was the more experienced musician who gave life to Simon's lyrics. His work was subtle but he deserves tremendous credit. For shame John.

                            I feel angry that they do not get paid more, and they are not insurance. They government of Nepal should required that to whatever agency is booking this so called "climbers" . Also what kind of human you are that you know not value the lives of those that are taking care of yours

                              Rich white people climbing Mount Everest is like rich people going to Burning Man... they spend a lot of money for a comfortable RV with food and drinks all prepared for them and sleep comfortably while everyone sleeps in the sand and trade belongings to barter for supplies... I bet you $100 they can't climb it on their own the 2nd time without a Shepard.. so that means it wasn't an achievement because they didn't actually climb it themselves, but they had heavy assistance (Shepards carrying your equipment, cooking food for you, preparing the ladder to help you cross a deep ditch, navigating and showing you where to go).

                                It's difficult to see the appeal in this. I'd have imagined that one of the amazing things which gave this arduous climb purpose would have been some intense feeling of solitude at the top, something both desolate and spiritual, unlikely to be felt again, but a memory to return to often when your spirit needs a connection. How the f- do you get anything like a mountaintop experience when you're up there for a couple minutes?! That line looked worse than the line outside a women's restroom- complete with the conscious knowledge that you're pressed for time, others are waiting, etc.- only this time, they might DIE if you take too long! Or what of a relatively well-prepared, experienced mountain climber who gets stuck behind a person who shouldn't be attempting this by any means? Add to this frustrating bottleneck of humans conditions which are life-threatening and just plain physically uncomfortable, and it just seems to me like you've got the makings of the Everest of Vacations from Hell.

                                                  If nepal side is technically easy, then professional mountaineers would do well to climb the tibetan side. Why the whining?

If some rich asshole wanted to pay me 11 grand to climb the roof of my house just to take a picture by my chimney I'm not turning that down. I'll even throw in the call to 911 for free when they bust their ass.

Put together with other convenient glitches happening recently, I'm getting really worried about where this is going.

One of the eight-thousanders, Makalu is an isolated peak whose shape is a four-sided pyramid
