  1. New low on Everest

    Still full of shit, good to see things never change http://www.alanarnette.com/blog/2013/04/29/everest-2013-everest-armistice/
  2. Best stove for France...

    The screwin canisters are pretty easy to find in france (nor really most any popular mountain destination in the world) and flying with a stove in checked bag isn't a problem at all so whatever the screwin stove of your persuasion is. On the small/light/cheap front a Pocket Rocket or a Snowpeak Gigapower
  3. Annabelle is a meanie!

  7. Crevasse Wanker vs. Snotty Students

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/may/24/mountaineer-joe-simpson-twitter-row Even the most successful authors have to suffer the occasional fit of spite from critics and readers. Few, however, have to contend with the twin indignities of being branded a "crevasse wanker" and having their accounts of preternatural mountain endurance rubbished by sulky teens. Fortunately, as befits a man who has outshuffled the Grim Reaper in both the Andes and the Himalayas – and who chose an automated alcohol dispenser as his luxury on Desert Island Discs so that he could drink himself to death rather than endure a protracted insular exile – Joe Simpson is not the sort to sulk. Best though is from his twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/touchingthevoidhttp://twitter.com/#!/touchingthevoid

    [video:youtube] clamp down!
  9. Stupid use of FB "like" button

    That's a mighty big "if" just like the data mining "if" which is a fair bit off I think. The bigger conversion issue is going between Facebook content and business content. Example: an Irish packaging company found their facebook participation didn't return shit compared to Google - which makes sense because you Google shit to research it. Facebooks ads aren't relative without some deep knowledge of the Social Graph and then how do you market it? They won't immediately go away but for them to be an advertising superpower they have to have a more subtle understanding of the customer than Google and be able to succesfully market it which takes some big thinking. Myspace had 1/4 the users. Why isn't that valid? Shit, I wish I had those hotsluts friending me.
  10. Canada in the news (Not?)

    The only border crossings in the world I've been accosted, detained and aggressively searched by asshats are 1) China 2) Canada. If I didn't know better I'd think the Canadian cunts were looking for bribes. Favorite bit was when, while going through my wallet and looking at the ATM card and Credit Cards the asshat asked me why I only had $5 in cash when coming to Canada. I didn't say out loud "you have ATMs in this 3rd world shithole, don't you?"
  11. Canada in the news (Not?)

    Grad school slave labor isn't free.... oh, wait, it is. Nevermind. The palaces for research professors that rarely teach don't come teach. Same for the advisors and everyone else.
  12. Montreal...

    I can't be a true fag fest without Mark.
  13. Montreal...

    like saying you got the biggest cock in china though? err, no, montreal had some serious talent last time I rolled through. pm porter regarding the cock size in china

    You mean like Teddy Bear Paradise? http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/ci_20310271/teddy-bear-paradise-arrested-santa-cruz-federal-warrant
  15. Montreal...

    Go to the stripclubs. Best titties in Canada
  16. Canada in the news (Not?)

    Why do so many Canadians think Canada is liberal and enlightened? Shit, why do Canadians still make jokes about how bad American beer is?
  17. Capitalism

    I'll give you $50 for a finger.
  18. The Silence is Deafening Today

    I quit giving a shit. You were trying? That's scary. The interwebz (or at least fora) are dead KK... now it's "social" media and self promoting spammers
  19. Why can't we all just get along?

    Perhaps partly because the internet is a relatively shitty way to communicate complex experiences? It best rewards simplistic narratives that can be beaten over and over and over and over. Even those extremely skilled in written communication can, and will, be raked over the coals either through miscontruction or assholity.

    I can't disregard someone having to pay back $1 million to a charity they are still a part of when I consider a charitable donation.
  21. Sobo's Updates...

    Woah. You in the 'stan? stay safe and all that; try and head up to Kyrgyz or Uzbekistan if you get a chance - fucking awesome countries, hot chicks, high peaks, cheap booze, meat on a stick.
  22. why do i care about whole wheat anything?

    drink your bread. much simpler
  23. greg mortensen, bs artist

    There's a wonderful charity I learned about on Cascadeclimbers.com long ago called Room To Read www.roomtoread.org that's done a much better job helping 3rd worlders, but a much shittier job promoting their head. Isn't an organization I have any desire to donate money to.
  24. RIP Whitney Houston

    what's 6 inches, didn't get blown on Valentine's Day and isn't Dru? Whitney's Crack Pipe.
  25. Good Seattle Times Colmun on Taxes(!)

    Remember both SS and Medicare are caped and Mitt doesn't have any payroll taxes so - usual disingenuity from the Anti-Tax dipshits aside - many more people pay more in taxes than Mitt. I've certainly paid more as a % some years.
