I was watching the Discovery Channel and I cannot understand the people who attempt to climb Mt. Everest! The highest point on Earth is almost 30,000 ft. high! UNREAL! The oxygen is so thin, the temps are so cold, and terrain so treacherous; who in their right mind would dare risk their life to go up that monstrosity? JAYSUS! Some climber got really bad frostbite on his fingers and some of his toes, and the woman said that the tissue was literally dead, that his extremities would either just fall off soon, or they'd just have to cut them off. UGH! Must be the rush and sense of accomplishment that drives these people to climb Everest, but I say no thanks man! I respect nature enough to know I ain't messing with her.
I'm currently fascinated by Scotland all of a sudden. Yes, the northern region just above England! Scottish men can be quite attractive, very masculine, and assertive when the need arises. As much as I admire England and all her glory, I kind of feel bad for the Scottish in a way for they haven't been dealt with by the English too kindly throughout history from what I have learned. I suppose they deserved to be their own independent nation, but alas, were swallowed up and became part of the United Kingdom in the early 1700s due to English dominance and corrupt dealings. Nonetheless, I salute thee Scotland, and thanks for giving us such fine talent as Travis, Franz Ferdinand, Belle & Sebastian, and Ewan McGregor of course!
