I agree. You've got plenty.

@THEODENKING: LOL

@ Ranger: I'm not a Marine, but a civilian...but yeah good to know that you hate other members of the military that have the same goal as the army goes...protecting our country. Agree with Surf...anger management would be beneficial for you. Go climb up the baby hills now, tough guy. Bring everything you think you need, and don't forget the supplemental 02!

Mr. Ranger, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this forum is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

A few musings of a dude who decided to read this:
I am new to 14ers, but I've got plenty of travels in the Kush, Alaska and Africa on 20,000ft+ peaks, so the joke's on you. Sorry to assume you guys would think before you speak.
With this Viesturs-like resume, we are you concerned with lowly Bierstadt???
All I did was implement the "Golden Rule" and retaliate just a little harder, which is what ignorance deserves.
I vaguely remember this part in the Bible where Jesus, after resurrecting from the dead, roundhouse kicked all the Jews in retaliation for their ignorance in not believing his earlier preachings. That sounds reasonable.

I'm sorry I haven't climbed tiny little f**kin molehills like the Rockies before.
Is that Pikes?!?! Image
Nope, just a molehill... Image
I have never seen such a large group of whiny little dumbass babies!!! NEVER!!! (Well maybe some primitives I came across in Brazil once)
For my response, I'll use your own words:
First off, let me start by saying that ASSumptions are the mother of all f***ups
Ignorance begets stupidity...

Yes, his lifestyle didn't allow for the access, so he was... maybe I'm incorrect... going to the local library branch? He had me in stitches...

HOW DARE YOU!!!! If either of your personalities want to say all that other harsh stuff, fine. But NEVER call into question our driving!!!
Some people have Gods, I have the Mountains. Regardless, neglect either for too long and you will get lost.

Loud noises! Ahhh! Toaster! Platypus!

The above line makes about as much sense as the rest of the posts on this thread. Mr. Middlebrook, can you put an end to this please?
