I forgot how much I love the Discovery Channel. I remember back home it was dangerous for me to start watching something because they always had something incredibly interesting on back to back.

Brad and I rented Everest: Beyond the Limits via netflix and have been watching it in our spare time. If you haven't seen the show it's so interesting! It will definitely hook you. Of course Brad wants to climb Everest now. He thinks he can do it. I think any red-blooded, American, manly-man thinks they can do it. But on the show people are actually dying and getting incredibly ill, and loosing limbs to frost-bite left and right. I actually find myself fascinated with the whys and hows of it. One interesting fact I learned was when climbing this mountain (and other high mountains) you can't just simply climb to the top. It's lots of jogging back and forth or else your brain will pretty much pop (which also happens to a lot of men!) I'll spare you incase you find this post awfully boring.
Anyway, just thought I'd share an interesting find! Definitely a clean, informative and entertaining show should you find yourself looking for just that.
