Man, 85, dies trying to regain title of oldest person to climb Mount Everest
[link to www.rt.com (secure)]

An 85-year-old Nepalese man has died while attempting to scale Mount Everest and reclaim the title of oldest person to climb the world’s highest peak.

Min Bahadur Sherchan died of an apparent heart attack at Everest base camp Saturday evening. He is the second person in a week to lose their life while preparing to ascend the near 9,000-meter (30,000ft) peak.

World famous mountaineer Ueli Steck, known as the Swiss Machine was killed Sunday after falling to his death near Everest. He was hoping to accomplish the daring feat of climbing the world’s highest mountain without the aid of oxygen.

Atleast he died at base camp... had he gotten a little further, his corpse would have remained there as a trail marker.

Maybe he died before he hit the ground??
They figured out a long time ago that its much easier to control people when we're all watching the same TV shows, listening to the same radio stations, going to the same movies, looking at the same billboards, eating the same food, and speaking the same language...

I call these persons "idiotas" and have no respect for them!

May he rest in peace, but he reaped what he sowed, or so.
(85 years old and thinks he could climb the highest mountain in the world, what a dumbass).

I read an article today, that this year there will be historic high-level of people travelling to Nepal/Mount Everest, to climb it.


Imho these people are attention-whores, that want to swagger about climbing this mountain.

So if some of them die?

It sounds like he died doing something that he loved doing. Maybe this is why he went up, so he could die happy doing what he wanted to do. In the old days people would walk out into the woods never to be seen again. They wanted to die alone in the wilderness, it was what they wanted and where they felt comfortable and closer to God.

Scaling Mt. Everest at age 85 is a great risk even for locals.

RIP Nepalese climber.

Now you can look at your beautiful mountains from on high for eternity.

People climb Everest because their lives are completely empty, utterly devoid of meaning. THAT's why they risk their lives in such a ridiculous way. They don't see the value in their lives and so there isn't anything to risk. It's sad, really.

Of course that is nothing but a bullshit stock explanation, dragged out to make the deceased's loved ones feel better for a few seconds.

You think he didn't know of the very real possibility he would die? Idiot, of course he knew, and he was willing to die to achieve his goal. I bet your sorry ass has never experienced something even close to that because you're perfectly content eating potato chips at your computer desk and on your sofa.
