1. "we're like family"

i'll bet we are. good thing these great 1%ers don't speak Sherpa, or they might learn a few truths about themselves.

3. All this just to get likes on Facebook and Twitter.

I love that John Oliver just completely destroyed that notion in the end of this segment!

5. Great show!

I loved how he got right to the point about why so many people do this stupid, dangerous climb.

For most of them, this is all about image. I will never understand it. I have no interest in impressing other people that much, but there are people out there who will risk their lives to be able to say they did it and get a "selfie" at the summit.

It's so ridiculous!

6. And the inexperienced woman who he profiled - he said she never made it back!

Boasting rights is one thing - but this arduous and dangerous climb can easily kill you!

7. Thanks, as always. Didn't he also show Meghan McCain wants to say "one thing?"

Never mind, found it and will post it separately
