\"Guest\" on top of Everest..?

Postby stephan » Thu Apr 12, 2007 3:36 pm

I find it very strange that Guest's last post was on the 16th of March, where have you gone....?

Strangely enough I have noticed that Ronnie Muhl, and his team, departed for Kathmandu at the end of March for the start of their 2007 Everest expedition. Can it be that \"Guest\" has fooled us all and will soon be standing on top of Everest :wink:

For those interested, follow their progress on http://www.everestsa2007.co.za/

I wish the team the best of luck, and I hope all goes well!!

Tough choice... maybe some of his (Guest) arch enemies can help us solve this one... any takers?

Or even better, maybe Guest can organise a satellite uplink from base camp and let us know himself :idea:

In Guests absence, I will pass the obligatory bitchy remark.
Madcrazyhaha you are going to need a few more draws for that & maybe a warm jersy.

That's awesome!!!! 8)

Are you sure your dutchman in uitenhauge didn't climb everest in his khaki pant short wif his knee high khaki socks and veld skoen? :P

I think you're right though... the jersey might be a good idea... :D

That's like saying all South Africans are crazy people. I'm serious, you're alle crazy, aren't you?

Don't compare us to germans. We're very different. Still a bit crazy, but in a different way. Germans love greasy beer and brätwurst, we love more biological stuff, you know.

By the way, it's not cold in Holland. This guy had to go to Norway/Sweden to find some snow/ice.

You guys only know heineken export, the Dutch Heineken is better. Export has to deal with certain rules and regulations, which influence the taste.

I need a beer too. It has never been this hot at this time of the year before, 80 degrees fahrenheit, 27 degrees celsius.

I think it is the same, but I'm not an expert. I know bottles are different (25cc versus 33cc), and if it is export it will probably be signed on the bottle.

He's probably chilling out in a deck chair on top of everest in shorts enjoying an ice cold beer while singing \"I'm the king of the castle and you're the dirty rascles . . . \"

You guys really are very amusing!

Regarding Everest, as I mentioned in my brand new \"Guest is cool\" topic, if I wanted to join the circus, I'd buy a clown suit, not a down suit! Everest, the side-show that it is, is for over-paid hikers, kind of like 'climbing' Kili.

I do however, really like the fact that everyone was so creative in trying to work out where I have been. Let's just say that while everyone here has been typing rubbish [and drifter has been sniffing thinners], I have been on one serious hell of a journey...and since I am back, let me begin by saying that of men and mice, you are all but a flea on a mouses butt! Lame, small, useless, boring and smelly!!

Casper, drinking Dutch beer is the same as drinking out of the urinals at a pub. If you really want a tasty beer, you need to try a Castle Lager. It takes a mere 9 hours to brew one, and I can tell you from experience that SA beer is great due to the addition of brake fluid at the plant. If it worked for our entire middle class, it can work for yours too!

madcrazyhaha, you're not so madcrazy. Your posts remind me of when I had my frontal lobe removed.

Anyway, love to you all...NOT!!!!

So glad youre back! Finaly a voice of truth. Your life would be wasted on Everest.

There is lots to catch up. Already you have said most of what the rest of us have been just to kind to say.

You don't know anything about Dutch beer. Have you ever tried Palm, Hertog Jan or Grolsch? Your urine has to be very strong to even come close to real Dutch beer.

Casper, how can you profess to know that Dutch beer is the best. Have you ever had a Castle Lager? I dont even know where Holland is except that it's somewhere in South America, and the beer I have tried in Mexico was like drinking bilge water. The beers that Europe has are much better. Hertog Jan? Sounds like hedgehog jam, which to me is just so cruel. Leave the little guys alone.

madcrazyhaha, what is your favorite beer? Let me guess, Black Label? or is it Brandewyn & coke?

Just as a matter of interest the Castle that they export (yes they actually export the stuff :) is brewed differently to the local (quick brew) we get here.

Water vs. Beer

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria found in feces.

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of Poop. However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, Beer or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember:
Water = Poop
Beer = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink beer and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of sh!t.

Hmmm, didn't know there was a market for Castle outside of South Africa.

We really are spoilt these days with what beers are available on the shelf as opposed to 10 years ago: Pilsner Urquell, Stella Artois, Peroni, etc.

*hmmm* :P

No, I don't. But beer is not the same as Lager. We don't brew Lager in Holland.

Now, if you look very close, do you see the Netherlands? That's right, it's in Europe! There is no difference between Holland and The Netherlands, or did your Geography teacher tell you something else?

And guess what, the good beers in Europe come from... Holland! Heineken, as the best known example.

By the way, Mexico has some good beers. Corona, for example.

Are you mad? I wouldn't touch black label if you paid me. I drink Becks or Heineken, if that's not available, windhoek, and sorry mate, i'm english, i don't drink brandewyn-en-coke... much rather prefer a nice neat glass of scotch though...
