These two guys are privileged brats will have nothing better to do with their lives then risk it for nothing. I'll never understand people who want to climb Everest. It's nothing but a waste of time. It's been done before by hundreds of people now. Do something real, and useful with your lives you idiots! But then they are probably so stupid that there's nothing better that they can do except to risk throwing their lives away for nothing! So go to a young men! Go to your deaths !
