Sir Ranulph on Top Of The World

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Furryturd, May 21, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The mad old sod has made it to the top of Everest at the age of 65.
    Sussex Madman
     
  2. What a bloke!

    Madder than a box of ferret tigers.

    I wonder i he'll celebrate by crimping off a couple of digits

    Rumour is that he has bought a cigar cutter in advance of this trip.
     
  4. I went up there when I was 28 and It nearly killed me ( not to the top) My brain was running out my nose bellow the ice fall, What a man,65 and still crazy. Well done Sir Ran
     
  5. What a bloke !!! well done
     
  6. Nice one Sir.
    Most 65 year olds struggle to ascend the stairs never mind Everest.
     
  7. The man is an absolute legend, a true role model! Well done sir

    I don't believe the loon actually went back for another go!!

    Well done Sir.
     
  9. Truly Inspiring

    Maybe other people could take a leaf out of his book
     
  10. I'm going to print out the article from the BBC and take it round to the local post office so I can hand out copies to the coffin dodgers who are queueing for their pensions.

    If a few more of the old farts tried to do something adventurous then the benefits budget would be cut substantially.

    After that I will convince the poor of Haiti that they should eat the UK unemployed.
     
  11. What great determination, top bloke.
     
  12. Madder than a box of frogs! Great effort. :clap:
     
  13. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend his book 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous To Know'. Not only is it funny, some of the stuff he has done is truly unbelivable.

    No-one is more British than this man.

  14. Only Ranulph can try twice, fail and then try again. Legend.
