"Everest" spelled backwards is "tsereve". Which explains everything.

I love the American measurement system, but it's a little confusing. How many pingpong tables are in one football field? And how many football fields are there in one Manhattan?? And how many Manhattans are in one Texas???

It has become a Sherade......should restrict to qualified climbers only. Evidently the only qualification is money, Sad the environment in a jungle or a mountain, always suffers becuz of man’s stupidity 😳😳😳

The actual climb itself, is relatively easy, in terms of mountaineering difficulty. That being said, it's not the physical hiking that is demanding. It's the altitude that people don't take seriously. When you're standing on ground, that is the same cruising altitude as a commercial jetliner, there's going to be some serious risks. The next time you get it in your rich âsś, bond trading head that you have what it takes, just crane your silly little neck up and look at a vapor trail left behind by a jet. THAT'S THE ALTITUDE OF THE SUMMIT. high enough to freeze the capillaries in your lungs, then burst them and kill you as you drown in your own blood.

He didn't even mention how there are frozen bodies on Mt. Everest that are actual landmarks to the route to the top.

Such a sad feeling to make an achievement into commercial business. Shame on humans
The whole presentation was actually quite good, except for the end. The treatment, the 'shooing' away, of the Sherpa was quite distasteful. Seemed like the white guilt needs to come out soon.

Kinda shows how many people had life handed to them and are desperate to show any real accomplishment at all. So why not exploit poor indigenous people to drag you up a dangerous mountain just to take all the credit at the top. The only thing I can find hilarious about this sham is that if you research these types of expeditions then you find out even the original trips up these mountains aren't that much different than the tourist trips of today.

Fuck that if you can't get to the top of Everest on your own then you haven't accomplished shit other than being a 1st world douchebag. And, look, I'm sorry but if you have no experience in mountain climbing and you insist on climbing a fucking mountain you deserve to die.

Wait why is there white guilt that the rich people are paying Sherpas to risk their lives? It's not slavery. The sherpa can say no fuck you I'm not risking my life for you. It's not the rich peoples fault that the sherpas don't have many other options for work and it's not like they would be going there with money at all if there wasn't a service they were trying to procure. The sherpas are as much to blame for accepting the life threatening work as the rich people are for offering it. Rich people in North America also pay poor people to spend their lives doing miserable work that causes them to spend most of their time hating their life and wishing they were dead. FFS they also do it to middle class people they just get paid more. If you have a problem with it then it sounds more like you are criticising the short falls of capitalism that allows a system to be created where people with more capital than others can get those others to do dangerous or degrading tasks in exchange for a tiny amount of that capital. Which is a fine thing to criticise but you can't really blame the player you have to hate the game.

Something I love about this segment is the fact that John was willing to wear some heavy snow pants for the entire episode just to prove his point at the end.

Fun fact. Because it is so high up and so cold body’s do not decompose. Body’s are used as land marks. They are usually covered with the flag of the country they are from. Helicopters can’t get that high and people can’t take the body’s down because their body’s are dying. But because of climate change the body’s are melting down the mountain. It’s very sad. (Learned about this is my college geology class)

Took him an entire 50 seconds to go through his umpteenth AT&T skit. I love him but god damn does he sometimes not know when to let a joke go.

Maybe I'm stupid, but if the sherpas have to put down ladders across the crevasses individually for hundreds of climbers, wouldn't it be more cost-effective in human capital for them to just build semi-permanent bridges? I understand that the climate and topography is generally unforgiving on Everest but I'm sure SOMETHING safe, however primitive, could be built as a semi-permanent installation every climbing season.

With all due respect to the true mountaineers, one good storm and collective intelligence of the human race goes up a notch. But dangereous jobs are the human condition. The coal miner a mile down who could be buried any time so you can watch this video.

when your brain swells so much that it leaks out your ears, it really describes your intelligence level. very low. it's pretty stupid to climb everest. with all the sherpas that help you, it's not really a great achievement anymore
