No. That's their own damn fault for taking on something so idiotic.

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/7/06 - 6:18:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
i don't exactly feel bad for them.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/7/06 - 7:05:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. They died doing something they loved.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/7/06 - 7:07:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's not my problem.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/18/06 - 10:07:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well no, since I'm not the one who put them up there in the first place.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/18/06 - 10:14:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
In truth, I don't give a sh*t what happens to them.

If I knew them in some way I would care, but otherwise I don't(in this case).

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/18/06 - 10:31:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's their choice, they know the risk.

And if they don't, they're going in unprepared. Natural selection at work.

You are the most heartless group of people I've ever seen. Damn.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/20/06 - 5:21:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
My feeling on this is that you gotta die sometime, might as well go out with a bang
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/21/06 - 2:02:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, its not like they were completely oblivious to the fact that few people make it.

We should feel sorry for people who essentially commit suicide? Wow.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/15/06 - 3:42:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, they chose to climb the mountain knowing the risks.

Took the words right outta my mouth. People climb mountains for the challenge, for the exhiliration, for the thrill. They're well aware of the risks. Most people aren't fortunate enough to be in the middle of something they enjoy when they die.

Not really. If they want to go kill themselves go ahead.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/30/06 - 10:39:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Tons of people have died driving cars, yet people still continue to do it. Are they responsible for their own deaths?
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 8/30/06 - 8:48:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, as a humanitarian I do, its a damn shame that someone would loose their lives so carelessly.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/14/06 - 1:57:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/14/06 - 3:30:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes i do... but then again they know of the dangers
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/15/06 - 10:49:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. It is a very risky thing.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/17/06 - 10:22:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/18/06 - 2:00:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
There are way worse ways to die.

No way. They weren't forced to go up there.
