Just watched a china movie about the hard journey to climb Mount Everest even though at first they have already done that in 1960 but didn’t take a photo as part of celebrating China 70 years. And using that movie to compare to the things that had been described in this video. And the difference of people dying up there was so fucking different in these 50 years
Well I google searched Makalu, just to make sure, that John hasn't bullshitted us.
*He hasn't.

Aww... everyone knows what was up in Simon and Garfunkel, you didnt have to call it out like that. That just seemed kinda harsh. It was still funny but kind of unnecessarily spiteful. He's an incredibly talented musician and seemingly decent guy that keeps to himself.

. The sherpas are paid a decent wage? and willingly do the job, a better question to the Sherpa would be, what would you be doing if you didn't have this job? The sherpas are not *_forced_* to do this work, they aren't slave labor. Instead of feeling guilty about providing them dangerous but well paying (or best paying, I don't know how pay and cost scale there) work, maybe feel guilty more isn't done to provide them other kinds of work.
I am by no means saying wasting money and risking life for the meaningless "achievement" of climbing to the top of Mount Everest is something we should be doing. Think of the environmental problems for one, air travel, van travel, disposable stuff needed for every trip including oxygen tanks and so on. But providing people work is one aspect that isn't exactly one to feel guilty about. This isn't a sweat shop employing little kids with painted on fire exits.

Wanna help the *nepali poor? Buy a kukri. And I mean one from a local blacksmith, not a tourist trap like the khukuri house. My blacksmith, ram, is just 13 km north of Kathmandu and he makes some fine blades. I've convinced him to let me do the heat treating and tempering but he does everything else. I've given him 2 solar panels (electricity is erratic in Nepal as well as a tuned Chinese shoe patcher sewing machine for his leather work. Wish I could give you lot an exact address but the thing about these informal businesses is that they're informally situated. Even gave him some macassar ebony for the handles of 2 of my knives.

If someone wants to go on Mount Everest, why not through Google Expeditions in VR: https://www.gearbrain.com/7-best-vr-education-apps-2579317090.html rather than the real deal?

Honestly People shouldn't be climbing Everest in this day and age. Unless its on their own or with minimal assistance.
Or at the very least they should seriously think about how much danger and potentially fatal risks that they are putting the sherpers in.
Yes they pay the sherpers but not nearly enough to endured such an exhaustive and potentially fatal climb.
Considering that those sherpers are normally the main bread winners for their family's ..children ect
What happens to their familys if god forbid one of them dies on the mountain. What happens their spouses..familys or if they happen to have childern
Who will then resume the responsibility of taking care of their loved ones. I
Im not not saying that all who have summited everest or tried to summit it are bad people
I'm pointing out that there is a real danger in underpaying them for the potentially fatlal risk(for the sherpers in particular)
That should be payed more attention to
Any humans life is worth more than summiting Everest just to break a record....like making a phone call.
Or the sensation of accomplishment that one feels after descending.
I dont have the awnsers ......i just know theres a problem and it HAS TO BE SOLVED . VERY QUICKLY

Just my oppion

K2 is far more dangerous. Death rate on Everest is about 4 percent; on K2, it's about 26.5 percent.

14:33 - because it's their free will and free choice, John. Taking freedoms and prohibiting people doing stuff they wanted to do freely is a feature of another type of regime... I would not like for the state to decide instead of me what is best for me... And if they die up the mountain, they die, and it's their fault.
Stop telling people what to do, how left can you go?

The Simpsons, Season 9 E23: King Of The Hill. Sherpas drag a Powersauced-up lift-tacularly swol Homer up the mountain while he sleeps, at the behest of the Powersauce CEOs. In reality this service is available to nearly everyone for only $125 000USD. Everest tourism: so ridiculous cartoon writers couldn't write the reality and have it be believable enough for Fox.

So... lemme get this straight, Ted Cruz should lick John Oliver's 'scrote' cause Cruz said that legal immigration is a good and illegal immigration is bad? WTF? How is this even a debate? How is following and respecting the law of the very nation you seek to enter something to be scorned? BTW, if you agree with John Oliver, then please tell me, why don't you and your family go n offer to vouch for some random, total stranger and let him/her stay at your place if you're so keen on the idea? I'm betting you won't, will you hypocrite?

Here's the thing: I am sponsoring an immigrant. She's my fiancee. In all reality, open borders are not an inherently bad thing. Criminals generally don't feel an overwhelming urge to live here. Those who want to escape their awful situations and start a new and better life here do.

mike meeks - Vor 25 Tage
@Kyson Channell lol, omg you didn't even listen to what John Olivier said did you? Everything in my post covers topics brought up by him. He covered ways someone can go through the immigration process. Vouching for an immigrant to stay with you is one of the ways to gain citizenship. So, you go ahead n let some stranger stay with you, vouch for them. I bet you won't. Why? Simple, cause you don't know them, and wouldn't want to put your family at a potential risk, right? Now think about that on a national scale, that's what open borders creates, and what Mr. Olivier is supporting.
