    Headline News Thread

    I think we need a thread for news stories that don't fit into the Nice Planet, What the Fark, Genuinely Nice Planet, or one of the couple 13, 14 political threads.

    Six Sherpas Killed, Nine More Missing in Mt. Everest Avalanche.

    The victims were all Sherpas, putting in guide ropes and setting up on-mountain camps.

    I thought I heard that the avalanche may have stranded 100+ above the slide because it took out a bunch of ladders and other equipment.

    Everest is a 4-6 week expedition. In addition to laying in the supplies and ropes, the climbers need to spend a lengthy period steadily getting used to higher altitudes.

    Pretty sweet gig being a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven. Not only does it exempt you from paying taxes, it also allows you to claim refunds on false withholdings. Thou shalt not steal, except from the US Treasury.

    The city lobbies him to open his hot sauce manufacturing plant within its borders, and then sues him because his hot sauce makes the neighborhood smell like his hot sauce. Amazing. He says that he won't move because the peppers are grown locally there, but he might want to reconsider and see if he can acquire some farm land in a similar climate elsewhere, like Texas, and then move his plant there. Heck, he can setup an irrigation system in the new place, if necessary. With much lower property costs, lower taxes, and lower labor rates, he could probably recoup the costs of the plant move within just a few years.
