Nope, sorry. I'm not a troll. I've covered this before. You must be an idiot too, d_baker.
Although I am certainly worthy of many awards....but not a troll.

It's painfully clear to me that England comes from a tainted gene pool, but I'm afraid I must second his nomination.

When the answer to that comes my way I'll let you know. I have no idea. :wink:
"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

Just remembered this one: Gore Range Hipsters as meme of the year.

2012 was the year the Gore Range became too mainstream. And not just because everyone was talking about the Gores so goddamn much. (Why is this necessary? You know where the trailhead is, you sort of know where the summit is, you know you're going up, exactly what else do you need to know?) I had to share the summit of Eagles Nest with THREE other people!
So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!
-- Alexander Pope

I was thinking live4pc, but for some reason wrote rustic....coincidentally, I think live4pc is gone too. I hope he was ready for winter before leaving!

Anna, what's the jello joke? I don't get it.
