…and then some

April 8


On this date in 1902, Andrew Irvine, a British mountaineer, disappeared somewhere high on Mount Everest with his climbing partner George Mallory.  Mallory’s body was found about 75 years later, but apparently Irvine’s was not.  Guess he’s still chillin’ up there somewhere.

April 8 is also the day that the Japanese celebrate Buddha’s birthday.
