Well, truth be known, we were safer when this photo was taken (anchor, belay, awareness of crevasse existing) than climbers usually are when walking across a glacier (no fixed anchor, unexpected crevasses). Or driving in a car at 70mph, for that matter. =)
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
