Here's my question, and I truly want to know: is it wrong of me not to feel terribly sorry about the plight those rich fucks find themselves in? Keep in mind I'm not talking about the Sherpas, who are essentially slave labor and frequently die unheralded thankless lives.

I'm talking about the self-indulgent bucketlisters who pay a minimum of 40 grand per person to shlep themselves across the world, follow guided mountainclimbing packages, make sherpas haul all their shit up the fucking mountain and back down, all so they can do a top-of-the-world selfie and post it to Facebook. Average Sherps pay for each trip? 32 bucks.

I hope every one of those spoiled rich fucks slowly starve and freeze to death on that stupid mountain, and tweet/post/instagram every step so guys like ESAD can find it and share it with me.


Yes, it's wrong. A human life is a human life. It shouldn't matter how rich or poor a person is.

And after your last sentence, you show me (yet again) just how fucking compassionate you extreme liberals really are. Fuck you for wishing that kind of suffering on anyone, let alone someone you've never met and have NO IDEA how they live their life or what they do with their money.

Oh sure, blame the gays.

Everyone knows it was the black liberal transsexuals (BLTs) who got God's dander so far up that he felt the need to shake it out all over Nepal.

Seriously.....I feel the same as FAHQTOO -- rich or poor, Sherpa or shar-pei, convervative or liberal -- I really hope the best for all of those trapped under buildings, or stuck on mountain tops, or just trying to come to terms with losing their loved ones without any warning.

Those souls spent 50 grand apiece to stroll up a mountain and treat it like it's a disneyland ride. Their sherpa guides carry all their goods, risk daily death and make thirty-two bucks.

Per trip.

Any guesses who the rescue teams and helicopters will rescue first?

Fuck them rich assholes on the mountain. They knew the risk of trying to climb a mountain that clearly does not want to be climbed. If they were truly adventurers who had got into a scrape at the whim of mother nature I'd be more sympathetic, but they aren't. Their self-indulgence endangers everyone around them, from the sherpas and their families who will go unrescued while the rich take precedence, to the villagers whose rescue resources will be diverted to the wealthy ones, to the rescue crews themselves who now have to try and traverse even more dangerous terrain to save these assholes who PUT THEMSELVES IN HARMS WAY. There are thousands dead in Nepal right now: how much sympathy do you suppose they deserve?

I have every sympathy in the world for people who face death and danger through no fault of their own. But these fuckers were asking for it. Sometimes the mountain wins.
Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

For years now, I have watched any program on TV having to do with the climbers of Mt Everest....Must be the adventure gene in me....Can't remember the year now, but it was a record year of lost lives, was especially heartbreaking. Loss of life becomes so casual, i.e, hikers on the way up or down casually step over deceased climbers...I think people should be allowed to climb mountains, but Mt Everest has literally become so trash ridden and littered including still frozen victims...I know that money talks, but I, for one, would like to see Everest closed down, at least, until they can clean up some of the trash. "They" say not possible because of altitude and/or weather conditions. I don't consider the frozen bodies trash, but just think if it were one of your relatives laying up there on path to the top....but I digress.....I wouldn't wish death upon rich or poor....I just want them to ban all climbing until they, at least, get the mountain cleaned up.

Unless they want affordable health insurance, a decent living wage or the ability to not be killed by police during detainment, amirite? Everyone knows rich people matter more than poor people, quit pretending.

I not only hope they all die on that mountain, I hope they starve so slowly some of them end up resorting to cannibalism before the inevitable end. And I hope they use up the last of their celphone batteries begging for help that will never come, knowing full well that all the money in the world ain't gonna save them from becoming just another frozen landmark for the next set of rich assholes who come to the mountain when everything settles down.

Fifty to a hundred thousand bucks they paid to die on a mountain. I find that hilarious beyond words.

Besides, isn't it the religious conservative mindset that the Caucasian Jesus God has a master plan for all his children? Well it seems to me God's plan for those people was for them to go fuck themselves on the side of Mt Everest. And what does that tell us? That either all those people were bastards, or God is a bastard. Either way, I hope they die gnawing each other's squishy parts.

I have God figured as the Bastard here and my heart goes out to anyone in these horrible circumstances, be they rich or poor. Now if some guy was committing a criminal act that hurt or threatened another and the gun back fired and he got hurt instead, then I might take the attitude you espouse, Donovan.

I'm choosing not to think about the awfulness of it all, I'm burying my head. Other people's misery affects me and I don't want to be affected.

It's heartbreaking; hard not to be affected by what the people of Nepal and the tourists there are going through.

The latest update is definitely a buzzkill.

With the death toll now standing at more than 4,000, ^ mass cremations have been taking place next to the Bagmati river, the waterway which divides the Nepalese capital, as mourning families attempt to give their loved one the honourable send-off so revered in Hindu tradition.

Today, plumes of white, acrid smoke could be seen floating across Kathmandu, as hundreds of bodies were burned in the ghats beside the river.

Around these ceremonies, families gathered, wailing in grief for their loved ones. Scores of dead children were wrapped in orange and gold cloth on the ground, as their relatives prayed for their souls in heartbreaking desperation.

A Week Later...

[Image: _82643122_026970089-1.jpg]

Amazingly, today three people were pulled out alive from the rubble of their home eight days after Nepal's devastating earthquake.

The current toll of 7,056 dead is likely to rise as an entire village was carried away by the avalanche and many more people are believed to have died, officials said.

The United Nations said 8 million of Nepal's 28 million people were affected, with at least 2 million needing tents, water, food and medicines over the next three months. According to the United Nations, 600,000 houses have been destroyed or damaged.

U.S. military aircraft and personnel were due to arrive in Nepal on Sunday, a day later than expected, to help ferry relief supplies to stricken areas outside the capital Kathmandu, a U.S. Marines spokeswoman said.

The team arrives as criticism mounted over a pile-up of relief supplies at Kathmandu airport, the only international gateway to the Himalayan nation, because of customs inspections.

Hopefully they'll rethink their priorities. I understand things need to be inspected but I think this would be a good time to forgo the red tape.

In point of fact the Nepal govt is starting to look like real bastards as well, for saying the climbing season was safe and fine etc. Sounds like the whole system is corrupt as hell over there with the lives of the citizens and sherpas being practically worthless. That is where my sympathy lies, not with the douchebags on the mountain. I'd like to know if any of them ever spent fifty to a hundred grand on relief efforts when the quake hit instead of blowing it climbing a big rock? Or the "leisure firms" that make a lucrative business on that mountain and the backs of the sherpas. Seriously, the more I see and read about it the more disgusted I get.

This is so sad. She called her sister as the house was being swept away and said, "I'm in a house floating down the river, tell Mom & Dad I love you". I can't begin to imagine how awful this has been for her husband who couldn't save his wife and kids :(

Such a sad story.

The amount of rain has been something... we've gone from extreme drought to surplus water in about 4-5 weeks.

Most river basins are saturated now, so flooding risk is up just about everywhere.

This year it was a slow melt around here. I've seen how floods can flash in the red dirt of Texas it's worse there by far.

It's gotta be awful for the husband/father who survived. He was holding onto a tree as the house was swept away. Imagine the sense of helplessness and loss.

Another family from Texas lost their 18-year-old daughter. She is described as well-loved upbeat high school senior who'd just been elected homecoming queen.

Alyssa Ramirez ^ was returning from prom when her car stalled. She called 911 and called home, but the flood was too forceful and too quick. Her car was swept away and she was found dead with it the next morning. RIP.

In the U.S., a line of storms that stretched from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes dumped record rainfall on parts of the Plains and Midwest, spawning tornadoes and causing major flooding that in Texas destroyed or damaged more than 1,000 homes and forced at least 2,000 residents to leave their homes.

"You cannot candy coat it. It's absolutely massive," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said after touring the destruction.

The governor has declared disaster areas in 37 counties so far, allowing for further mobilization of state resources to assist.

Smooth move by Anheuser-Busch.

Anheuser-Busch has recently halted beer production at one of its facilities for a very good reason.

According to company officials, its brewery in Cartersville, Georgia, has temporarily reconfigured itself to produce cans of drinking water for flood victims in Texas and Oklahoma instead.

It plans to provide the American Red Cross with more than 50,000 cans of potable water as part of relief efforts.
