    Hmm, the previous record was set by a 70 year old Japanese man about a year ago. Same guy? :D

    The evolotion of words: e.g. "Google it" "YouTubed" although reaching the summit of everest is scarcely the same level of task. :p



    That guy is amazing. To think, I get annoyed if I have to walk to my car in the rain. :eek:

    Wow! And here I was just telling one of my classes about a 17 year old, thus youngest, that just made it to the summit of Mount Everest. All I can say about this 71-year old gentleman who did the same thing is OUTSTANDING (bows deeply to the person)! :)
