    A guy I work with climbed Everest. Of course, he wasn't first, but he reminds me about it dang near daily. To the point that I wish he had FALLEN off of Everest.

    Having said that, this is somewhat sad news I suppose. He lived to a nice old age and will forever be immortal, so I would say it was a good life for the man.

    R.I.P. Edmund
