People who die or lose limbs or are otherwise incapacitated in some way by doing shit like climbing Mt. Everest, "conquering" El Capitan, or competing in extreme sports in extreme conditions ARE NOT heroic overachieving role models.
They are fucking idiots who died or were incapacitated by their own stupidity, arrogance and narcissism.
If you want to "live life on the edge", that's fine. Go for it (idiot).
But don't expect anyone else to mourn your passing when you die doing stupid shit that routinely gets people killed.
You call it "pushing the envelope". I call it "culling the herd".
You call it "feeling alive by tempting death". I call it "natural selection".
Go! Test yourself! Die! No one cares.
Don't expect anyone to construct a shrine to you unless it is to serve as a warning to normal people not to do stupid shit that will get them killed dead.
Society is better off without your stupidity cluttering up the gene pool.
