Sharks and Sherpas

1) Friend Anup sends me an article from Surfer Magazine about some total nutbar in Northern Territory, Australia who rides great white sharks. What's wrong with people.

2) Check out this Outside Magazine feature about a Sherpa former Himalaya-guide, current taxi driver in New York. I've seen someone make the opposite transition when I met a Nepali guy in a mountain village there who had just come back from New York and brought his new American wife with him, so now the circle is complete. I should point out that I disagree with this Sherpa guy strenuously on the value of Oregon pinot noir but aside from that seems like an interesting dude.
