I don't believe it. I think he snuck into the cargo hold. I've seen estimates that the temperatures were in the -50F to -80F range. That's like being at the south pole in the winter. Imagine someone in shirtsleeves surviving there for 5 hours. Call them up and ask them if they think it's possible. There's a base there.
The temperature there right now is around -75F. comment by usgoosht on 5 stowaway attempts that didn't end tragically Apr 22, 2014 4:44 PM [GMT]

If there is more demand for Mt Everest climbs than available climbs, it means the price is too low. The government of Nepal has to raise the price to climb Everest to a level that brings only the amount of annual climbers that the mountain and infrastructure can sustain. That will yield funds to improve the lot of the people surrounding Everest, including the sherpas.

Suppose that it cost $US 500,000 or 1,000,000 for a licence to climb, plus all the ancillary costs. Would there still be overcrowding on the mountain? comment by usgoosht on Watch: Sherpas Consider Boycott After Mt. Everest Deaths Apr 21, 2014 9:09 PM [GMT]
This has nothing to do with gun laws. It has to do with a culture that has degenerated to a point where it produces savages.

Thank Lyndon Johnson and his great society programs. Those programs destroyed the poor black family. And led directly to the chaos being witnessed on the streets of Chicago. And thank the spiritual heir of Mr. Johnson, the current occupant of the White House. He has the bully pulpit, but he has used it for political advantage instead of social benefit. When there has been an opportunity to denounce this dysfunctional culture at the risk of personal and political alienation, he has consistently declined, instead choosing to kowtow to his constituency, reaping personal and political benefit from the moment. Disgusting!

The hip-hop and rap gangsters are parasitic vampires. Trading in the blood of their community for their own benefit. Glorifying a dysfunctional lifestyle to make money. comment by usgoosht on Chicago police face overwhelming gun crime as 45 people shot over weekend Apr 21, 2014 8:59 PM [GMT]
Nancy Pelosi is considering resigning her seat, and sponsoring an illegal Mexican for the position. "It's time I put my money and my career where my mouth is," she is reported to have said.

And Barack Obama has asked Joe Biden to resign, so he can appoint an illegal Mexican to the position. When that is completed, Barack has said he will resign, so that his vision for the country can be realized. "When you are a king, when you are responsible for what the laws are, and which laws need to be obeyed, it is important to have a strong commitment to a vision. This demonstrates my commitment", Obama said. comment by usgoosht on U.S. considers curbing deportations Apr 21, 2014 8:45 PM [GMT]

Where their stock trades are executed? Like that matters. This 'solution' smacks of collusion with the predators. Lots of distracting motion with no real action. Keep their cozy, cushy situation going. Regulatory capture in action. comment by usgoosht on SEC weighs requiring brokers to identify where trades made: Bloomberg Apr 19, 2014 11:57 PM [GMT]
It's trivial. Timestamp each buy or sell order as they arrive. Then, gather them in a single location, and execute them in the order of their timestamps. This probably involves less than a second of delay in trades. All it requires is co-ordination to a common clock. Suppose every exchange has to have an atomic clock, and they sync their clocks before the start of the trading day. Those clocks loose nanoseconds in centuries, so they aren't going to get out of sync at all in a day.

But, this precludes low latency trading, as they can no longer front run.

Please also put in place a rule that exchanges are not allowed to sell their customers to predators, as well. comment by usgoosht on SEC weighs requiring brokers to identify where trades made: Bloomberg Apr 19, 2014 11:55 PM [GMT]
