Discovery Channel has a couple kick ass tv shows that I started watching in the past couple weeks.
- Storm Chasers, a group of scientists and a filmmaker trying to intercept a tornado.
- Everest: Beyond the Limit, an expedition up Mount Everest.
I’m totally digging both of these shows. The last episode of Everest, they showed these two Sherpas who basically ran all the way up the mountain, laying down new ropes for the expedition. Then made it back to base camp in time for dinner. Those guys are amazing. That’s just a feat of human engineering to make it up to the summit, then back down. And they didn’t even appear to be bushed when they made it back to base camp.
My hat is off to those guys. That’s insane.
