comment Is climbing an ambidextrous sport?
You will always try and get your weaker side as strong as your strong side but it's very very difficult to make both hands/feet equally as strong (depending on your dexterity). So you will naturally rely on your stronger side (especially during difficult moves) more than your weaker side. Nicely said mate.

@Benedikt: There is nothing really wrong, but you know sometimes you can't really clean it entirely the way you want it. There can be some leftover.

comment For how long afterwards do we benefit from acclimatization?
Agree with @Ben here. If you're going high in the Himalayas, then realistically you're going to need weeks to adapt, and compared to that, a few days spent in the Alps is probably not going to be significant... +1!

comment How to check if a fence or cable has electricity without having special tools?
@ShemSeger: I wouldn't take that up as a straight criticism, buddy. It is indeed a great answer and is rewarded as accepted one as well. That said, the other gents have brought upon some good points about possibilities, and those points indeed look noticeable. For what I know of TGO, Its not mandatory to refrain commenting on someones answer unless you have an answer.

comment Snake on chest while sleeping?
@ThatIdiot: Yeah, makes sense. I am kind of a guy who would never want to be bitten by a snake, whether it is venomous or not. Yeah, you rightly pointed out about covering the snake with the heaviest cloth is the thing to do, but I doubt, if everyone can have that presence of mind as first natural reaction most of the times that one will have is panic!
