5. You will get lumped in with the 'elitist' crowd.

4. You've never been there, and neither have I. But having read all about it makes me an expert.

3. Oh look ! Five minutes of my life gone, just like that.

2. Chief Dow Milquetoast will flame yer sorry ass.

1. Top reason :

You beat me to it, you filthy llama-llover. But I was going to go a different direction.

Five reasons to climb Mt Sunflower:
5. You probably won't die.
4. Scuba proficiency not necessary.
3. Illinois' high point is only open a few weekends a year.
2. Hey, if you're already in Kansas, you might as well do something.
1. You can be the first to complete the Sea-to-Summit route.

Any mountain can be the most dangerous in the world if you don't approach it the right way.

The most dangerous mountain in the world is any mountain I've climbed and you haven't.

1. Mt. Everest's climbing seasons are May and October. Why would you want to go climbing when you can spend May chasing sexy senoritas around in Mexico (Cinco de Mayo) or October frolicing with the frauleins in Germany (Octoberfest) for a story?

2. Show the editor what the Internet is all about. Show him/her how easy it is to cut-and-paste last years drivel about Mt. Everest onto the company's most recent webpage update (nobody reads your stinkin' rag of a e-newspaper anyway). Point, copy, paste . . . yer column inches for the day are done!

3. Its a only a mountain. It'll be there tomorrow. So spend the time doing #1 & #2 above.
