Fantastic Friday: Oldest Man To Scale Everest Edition

5-23-13-Oldest-to-conquer-Everest_full_600

I can’t really understand why the Japanese are making such a big deal about this.

An 80-year-old Japanese man who underwent heart surgery in January reached the summit of Mount Everest on Thursday, becoming the oldest person to scale the world’s highest mountain.

Yuichiro Miura and his party, including his second son Gouta, arrived at the summit at around 9 am local time (0315 GMT), according to Miura’s website, besting the previous age record by four years.

I mean, so what?  He’s old.  Everyone gets old.  He had surgery. Lots of people do that too.  And this was the third time he climbed Everest.  Everyone climbs Everest three times.  Wait…Mount Everest?

Ok, I stand corrected.

Bravo sir.  Bravo.

Have a Fantastic Friday everyone
