14:33 - because it's their free will and free choice, John. Taking freedoms and prohibiting people doing stuff they wanted to do freely is a feature of another type of regime... I would not like for the state to decide instead of me what is best for me... And if they die up the mountain, they die, and it's their fault. Stop telling people what to do, how left can you go?

Weak episode. The narrative seemed forced and inauthentic.

I feel somewhere in this video there should have been a black joke lol or rather a white people joke lol

Ever since I was in middle school I dreamed of climbing Mt. Everest. It's sad that this is the reality. Maybe one day I still will, but with as little help as possible

A line to reach the top of the world. Now I want to kill myself.

The Simpsons, Season 9 E23: King Of The Hill. Sherpas drag a Powersauced-up lift-tacularly swol Homer up the mountain while he sleeps, at the behest of the Powersauce CEOs. In reality this service is available to nearly everyone for only $125 000USD. Everest tourism: so ridiculous cartoon writers couldn't write the reality and have it be believable enough for Fox.

So... lemme get this straight, Ted Cruz should lick John Oliver's 'scrote' cause Cruz said that legal immigration is a good and illegal immigration is bad? WTF? How is this even a debate? How is following and respecting the law of the very nation you seek to enter something to be scorned? BTW, if you agree with John Oliver, then please tell me, why don't you and your family go n offer to vouch for some random, total stranger and let him/her stay at your place if you're so keen on the idea? I'm betting you won't, will you hypocrite?

Here's the thing: I am sponsoring an immigrant. She's my fiancee. In all reality, open borders are not an inherently bad thing. Criminals generally don't feel an overwhelming urge to live here. Those who want to escape their awful situations and start a new and better life here do.

@Kyson Channell lol, omg you didn't even listen to what John Olivier said did you? Everything in my post covers topics brought up by him. He covered ways someone can go through the immigration process. Vouching for an immigrant to stay with you is one of the ways to gain citizenship. So, you go ahead n let some stranger stay with you, vouch for them. I bet you won't. Why? Simple, cause you don't know them, and wouldn't want to put your family at a potential risk, right? Now think about that on a national scale, that's what open borders creates, and what Mr. Olivier is supporting.

If you CANNOT guarantee to remove your own dead ass body from there, you shouldn't be allowed to climb. It's sad people are dying and all, but that's not an excuse to do irreparable damage to the environment.

🤣🤣🤣 Are you fucking kidding me? That sherpa on the ladder is wearing a harness and is roped in. As a mountaineer that is literally the absolute best position to be in.

We need you! in Colombia almost 9000 executions of young people, 500 ONG members and 150 disidents of old guerrillas were murder in past 10 years. We need help to bring former president Álvaro Uribe Vélez to justice. We need your help to show the World how his puppet Iván Duque is killing our democracy. We need your help!

Tabasco on oysters?! Someone somewhere in France just died! Oh and in case you were wondering, because John didn't explain it, the hardest mountain to climb is K2, Everest' Pakistani brother from another mother. Only about 300 climbers have made it to the summit, and for every 100 who attempt the climb, 29 die.
