THE OLYMPIC FLAME AND EXPLODING EYEBALLS
A 21 year old Tibetan woman carried the Olympic torch to the top of Mt. Everest on Thursday. I don't understand people who get up one morning and say "Hey let's climb that mountain that is so cold people pee ice and die when they climb it" and then climber number 2 says "OK maybe our eyes will explode because we are at such a high altitude and our feet will fall off, but we can do it!". Thrill seekers unite and do it on a regular basis. Seriously if I see one more movie about some moron with a death wish climbing that ridiculous mountain, I am going to blow the thing up. It is too cold, too high and there are too many skeletons saying "turn around! turn around!" for it to be considered as an amazing feat. Go ahead and chalk one up for the Tibetans for taking the torch to the top. Who ever said they weren't allowed to do anything fun in China. Next highest place...THE MOON!
