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.

Climbing Mt.Everest would be soooo amazing! I'd put it in my bucket list, but to be honest, I'm pretty sure I'm not fit enough to do the hike. Sigh....someday, I tell yah....

Oh dear.

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.

I've learned that spiders are so resilient that they even live at the top of Mt. Everest.

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!
