i was just suggesting, before the searcher enlightened me with that link, that the woman died with her mouth open, which would've exposed the tongue a little. kinda a reach, i admit, but just a suggestion.
hehe... others are saying i'm not pleasent? well, i'm opinionated, but then again there is quite a few people on this forum who are every bit as opinionated as me. difference is that i have an open mind towards things and don't automatically dismiss people's claims as to whatever i deem them to be. people believe different things, and i feel that i'm more sensitive towards those beliefs than alot of the skeptics on this forum. myself, i believe in certain things that others don't, simply because of the things i have seen. but i'm very much a skeptic of CLAIMS, because most can be explained with normal explanations; i don't just simply come out with an answer that best fits my view and try to shove it down the person's throat like alot of other members. being a skeptic is something to be proud of, it's the best way to be. this is provided that in the process of being skeptical one tries to help the person to understand exactly what is happening with them, and not just to force feed them what you believe to be happening. i don't understand how people who don't even know a person can come to the conclusion that they're unpleasent, but everyone has a right to their opinion. :rolleyes:
yeah, i think we'll do ok. :D

no problem, just lettin ya know. yeah, pretty level-headed and fact-based if you ask me.


Opinionated?
I am surely cut from that cloth also. It is rare someone wonders what I am thinking :) But I suspect you have picked up on that already.
I think it is great to have an open mind, that 1% is of great interest, it is hard sometimes to know what side of the fence a person can be sitting on. I have become somewhat deeply skeptical having spent quite some time here, but with some of the nutters you will get to know and love, I am sure that will be well understood.
Please don't dwell on the unpleasant crack, I am guilty of "opinionated" responses myself, good comeback, I respect it :tu: No offense meant, in fact, the cheeky banter made me instantly like your views. In all fairness, you started it LOL, with read up. But I am liking the blunt approach. Straight up and honest.
I look forward to more of your posting. It is nice to have Matt and Cetacea, Neo, Copasetic,in fact too many professionals to mention, to learn from as well, and more often than not these people do have the answers, but the mystery is always intriguing. Actually, quite often I find the answers to be so as well.
Keep it up, don't mind me :D
Cheers mate.

nah, it's over and forgotten! never once took offense, believe me, i'm always up for a good verbal sparring myself. i've actually been a member of UM for a while now, though i've just started the majority of my posting (did lotsa reading in the forum, just not posting, so i kinda got a little feel for the longer-tenured members) as of late. it is good to have so many different views, keeps things from gettin stagnant! take care and no worries! :tu:

And no you're not unpleasant, neither is Psyche101, at least you guys read up and think. More than can be said about a many people here. And no worries Pshyche101, the blunt and to the point is needed sometimes, cause it's the only thing certain people will understand. We've all abused that one, once in a while.

I just thought that the tongue may have taken longer to freeze than more exposed bits.

With the scavengers, the weather sounded pretty harsh, I would be surprised if tracks were found, although I guess the bodies were in the elements for quite some time.


That's what I was thinking actually. a small scavenger might not have the strength to open the body cavity and even if the mouth was slightly open, it would have still been slightly more sheltered. But that's just a guess, my knowledge of decomposition processes aren't that great.

Yep I just realized somebody else voted for that. *facepalm* - even government conspiracy is more likely that that option.

We are talking about the government of the Soviet Union.  It could realistically be argued the entire system of government was a self-inflicted conspiracy on itself.  There was almost no interdepartmental communication, and almost everyone involved at any level was just as likely to sit on information they thought was important until they could pass it on themselves to whatever higher-up they felt the need to brown-nose at the moment.

When people say avalanche they think of the large airborne and massive events seen in movies. Avalanches are scary. They make an enormous sound. Thinking that a large slide was about to overwhelm a camp at night could certainly scare a party into abandoning a camp they believe is about to be buried. They might have abandoned the camp only to realize later that the camp was still partially intact because the avalanche missed or barely impacted the camp.

The story does not sound like anything more than another mountaineering tragedy.

Quite good theory that, I like it. Under the circumstances, it would explain most of what had been found.
