“Bloody good time that Everest was!”
Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to summit Mt. Everest, died today at the age of 88. I must admit that I feel partially responsible. You see, earlier this morning, I happened to randomly look at a Wikipedia page on famous explorers, and when I read that Sir Edmund Hillary was still alive, I thought to myself, “Really? He’s still kicking around? Him?” I think at that point God must have been like, “Shit, you’re right.” DEAD.
Hey, the good news is that he lived a long and exciting life, but if you ask me, after you climb Mt. Everest, everything else is just DOWNHILL FROM THERE! (Rimshot!!!)
