LOL! Now why would someone strip nude in an area where one can freeze their twig and berries off within minutes of exposure?!?

Never know when the mountian is eyeing your pork 'n' beans. I really don't see what is so offensive about it. Even from the sacred point of view, most things considered sacred are also tied to being something to do with God, and God didn't create us so we're born wearing the latest Gucci outfit, we humans cloth ourselves. And what about the mountian itself? Aside from a few flags and tents it's NAKED for the world to see. It should be ashamed.

I came out kicking and screaming in a goo! LOL!

Considering it's common for Everest climbers to get such severe frost bite that finger, toe, nose and ear amputation is common I dread to think what "other" bodily parts might need to be cut off!
