Take that, Macho Man

I run to work about twice a week.
Sometimes I do a few pushups.
About once a week, I do some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
So, you know, I thought I might be in decent shape.
But these Nepalese porters put me--and, I suspect, everyone I've ever met--to shame.

Feel like a seven to nine day mountain trek with 90 percent (on average) of your bodyweight to your head?
How about doing that for your job?

I don't think I'd make it across the room.

Note to self: mention preference for Nepalese porters in next craigslist roommate search. Never take the trash out again.
