Mt. Everest, the worlds tallest trash dump.
A landfill with a cemetery… According to the Himalayan database, at least 322 people have perished on Mount Everest since records began in 1922, averaging out to about 4.4 deaths per year and that number slowly ticks up each year.
I would rather spend the money on helping people instead of just boosting my ego and adding to the mess that is already there..
At least the climb get rid of some rich nogoodnicks.
Well, at least it’s not a Starbucks!
Not to worry, the Peak of Mt. Everest is now, thanks to global warming, 1000 feet lower.
WHAT? No selfie post? what’s this world coming to???
It’s right next to the Tesla charger.
the phone charging station is maintained by a guru who works the other side.
There’s been cell service at the top for years now, I hear.
And a golf hole.
I get the biggest kick outta people that climb Everest…even Hillary couldn’t have done it without a support team of umpteen others, including many locals.
Where’s the Starbucks? There was supposed to be a Starbucks!
Ohh – K2 then …!
The joy’s of idiotic conquest – gone…
The first charging station was stolen, and they had to call in Nepalese.
One of the Sherpas was fired ’cause they caught Himalayan down on the job.
Soon, a 7-11. Doritos will start at $400 a bag. Don’t ask for directions from the kid in the puffy smock and visor. The giant Slurpies in a display… outside. (Drawn from a heated churning machine. Just for a touch of nostalgia.) And of course, the soft serve machine doesn’t work. No surprise.
We ruin everything, don’t we?
