Fact of the Day: Everest Air

At the top of Mount Everest, there isn't much oxygen in the air. As such many of the people that get close to the top often have tanks of oxygen with them.

  6. Yeah and there's a dead zone near the summit for the poor bastards whose oxygen runs out. Bodies from decades ago are still frozen up there.

  12. Man, I don't know why people feel the need to get up there anyways - is there no piece of nature they could just leave alone for a second, haha!
