Here are two examples of idiots on Mt. Everest who should not be allowed to be there

The New York Times recently published this article about the relatively large number of recent deaths on Mt. Everest.

The article states:

Some climbers did not even know how to put on a pair of crampons, clip-on spikes that increase traction on ice, Sherpas said.

People like that should not be allowed on the mountain.

This is from the same article. The bolding is mine:

“I saw some people like they had no emotions,” he said. “I asked people for water and no one gave me any. People are really obsessed with the summit. They are ready to kill themselves for the summit.”

This person also has no business being on the mountain. It’s not other people’s responsibility to bring water for him. It’s his own responsibility.
