ok, I have to admit

I was first thinking that you got nice teeth, but then I realized it would be polite to congratulate you on summiting an 8000 meter peak!
Did you use oxygen? As a scientist you surely know about the brain damage at high altitude.

Re: ok, I have to admit

Whether I use oxygen? Euh, for sure I use oxygen, are you insinuating that I am a sulfur-breathing bacteria? In case the question was about bottled O2, no I didn’t use any… but please, keep it as a secret, I enjoy so much "The Chief" calling me an O2-junky in every forum thread about Himalayan climbing… :)

Brain damage? I knew something about it before going there, but now I forgot all. Do you mean that would be a sequel? As one physician from my hometown once said, La montagne mérite bien qu'on lui sacrifie quelques cellules!".

Anyway, thanks for the teeth, and congratulations for your Aconcagua climb!
