Who Cares?

Response to Everest Summit (or not?)


Mountaineering is a recreational activity. I don't really care whether someone else did something or not. Just like I don't care whether someone who claims to have a potato that looks like Richard Nixon grew it with or without artificial means.

Such debates are silly and remind me of that guy (Dan Howitt) in Portland, Oregon, who constantly goes around demanding time verification and photographic evidence before he deems anyone's (Chad Kellogg's) claim legitimate. If the evidence doesn't pass muster with him, then he claims the ascent didn't happen. Who cares?

I guess it comes down to whether you want to be act like the Chad Kelloggs of the world or whether you want to act like the Dan Howitts of the world.
