Is life really that bitter?


See the comments of Bob S for the similar thread about the 17-year-old Everest climber. She has committed the ultimate offense: casting a shadow on carefully-polished egos.

"this woman" ?

That is a pretty insulting comment. Have you yourself managed to do what she has done?

She did a nice thing, and people bash her for that?
:?
True philanhtropy comes without personal gain. She, however, called the news crew and put on a show before rescuing kitteh.

WORD

"Oh I was out running on the trail and I heard a kitty cry so I went home called the new station first, then animal control, and had my agent write me up a personal statement of all my accomplishments, oh and to rap off the bridge abutment, I will require my mountaineering boots, rope, acenders, helmet... the rap will be about 1m so I will bring my 60m rope...."

Oh and if managing to do what she has done required no funds as I am a poor ass college student then yes in a heartbeat.

So you two are taking issue with the style of her philanthropy?

She didn't act philanthropically at all.
