      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Dying is NOT worth it.

Recommended Posts

maybe this will help in differentiation:

 

"wine" - a result of the fermentation of mashed grapes and resultant juice

 

"whine" - a result of shriveled grapes

The big question is this: knowing that you could die in a car wreck, would you still drive or even get in a car again?

 

Wolfgang Gullich doesn't have this answer. John Bachar might.

""OK, all the recent deaths in the climbing world""

 

Don't buy the Faux News hype. Just because you see it on TV doesn't mean it's happening at any faster rate than it ever has been. Percentage wise climbing deaths probably haven't changed. Much of the stuff on TV news is abberation type stuff that has no relation or consequence to real life.

 

Lot better chance of a car accident to and from the climb than death on the climb.

 

You could just let all the recent hype make you climb safer. Like not putting daisies on your belay loop. And taking food/stove/insul.jacket on winter volcano ascents.

But adding this as my 200th post IS worth it.

I love the look of total adoration on the guy in the Lacrosse (funny enough) t-shirt on the right. Priceless.

Saw a post by the universally adored Jonmf76 in the Alaska Forum, and with the advent of the Hood disaster book, thought this thread deserved a bump for renewed adulation of our hero, Jonmf76.

 

 

More Jonmf76 sagacity

 

 

For a current sampling of his concern for others, you can read this quip in the thread prompted by Lara Kellog's death (due to rappelling off the end of her rope, presumably): "Tying a knot in the rappel rope" in the Climbing Forum. -

 

"Maybe living just isn't that cool...it must be cooler to fall off the end of your rope."

You guys are clearly a bunch of dumb pussies.

 

Is everyone on this board an asshole for a specific reason or were you just born that way?

 

I like to think that I was born a dumb pussy due to an accident of nature, but worked hard, damn hard, to become an asshole for the specific reason of no longer being viewed as just another dumb pussy.

 

One thing I never forget to bring to an emergency situation is the capability of CAPITALIZING the most poignant points of my posts.

 

Finally, I'd like to POINT OUT that dying in the mountains is WAY COOLER than dying from, say, prostate cancer or a disease of the anus. Much as we'd like to pretend otherwise, there is a hierarchy of cool ways to buy the farm, with spaceship malfunction being pretty near the top, and a dog eating your face off while you're passed out from too much malt liquor after a meth binge being somewhere near the bottom.

 

Some finer points: Motorcycle accident > car accident.

Brain tumor > colon cancer. Lion attack > pitbull attack. Hit by train > hit by bus. Shot by a jealous lover > shot by your spouse.

 

Don't ask me why this is, it just is.

You're right about the spaceship malfunction being near the top. When people ask why I climb I sometimes tell them that I do it because I was too lazy to become an astronaut, so I guess dying in space is just a little better than dying in the mountains.

The only way to die with more press coverage than in an exploding spaceship is to be an assassinated president...but in the latter case a majority of folks might actually celebrate your passing. That puts space accident at the top of the heap.
