    Polish dude (with obvious death wish) becomes first person to successfully ski K2

    I don't think I'll ever use the term, "no fall zone" so cavalierly, ever again.

    Insane, he would have been dead of he fell up high. Not much of any chance of rescue up there.

    There are so many great lines from that movie (including that one), to name a few:

    "Where's a little boy like you get big boy smut like THIS!"

    Oh, Meyer, you're diggin' your own grave!

    "He uses it as a chance to put his testicles all over me"

    Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way... TURN!

    That's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that.

    Who'd like to hold my clipboard? You'd make a fine little helper, what's your name?

    I could go on...........so many great quotes.......

    Great movie, I'll watch it anytime but a lot of people call it a ski movie which I think is a bit of a stretch.
