    Hello Everybody,

    GENEVA—Saying they had no real problem with wealthy thrill-seekers
    failing in their efforts to scale the tallest mountain on earth, the
    entire human population admitted Tuesday that they are, in fact,
    completely fine with rich people dying on Mount Everest. “These guys
    shelling out a hundred grand to climb a 29,000-foot peak with a team of
    Sherpas are obviously aware that many people have died in the attempt,
    so they kind of know what they’re getting into, right?” said Cleveland resident Richard Warvil, echoing the sentiments of the world’s 7.7
    billion people, who acknowledged the deaths of affluent amateur
    climbers who voluntarily ascend to heights at which oxygen stops
    reaching the brain don’t really upset them all that much. “At a certain point, you’re kind of bringing it on yourself. Plus, if you have that
    much disposable income and, of all the things you could do with that
    money, you choose to spend it on this—well, we’re actually okay with
    you dying. It may sound harsh, but we’re gonna get along just fine
    without you.” At press time, sources confirmed no candlelight vigils
    were being held at the foot of Mount Everest.
