       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 


Greetings Infomaniacs,

Everyone knows that Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in 
the world and one of the deadliest. For every 10 successful 
ascents there is one fatality.

With a record like that you would think it is an incredibly 
difficult climb. Not for the right kind of person. In 2004 
a Sherpa named Pemba Dorje climbed Mount Everest in 8 hours 
10 minutes.

Now that is a pair of legs. 

Enjoy!
