comment What are the first aid precautions to be taken in case of a snake bite?
@fire.eagle: That sounds interesting. I've never heard of the technique. But that makes sense. Haven't heard if it makes the difference but there is no harm in marking. Thanks for the information!

comment Divers deliberately breathing fast before diving into water
Okay, +1: I agree with the point "For scuba diving this practice has no use. as you will be under water for a while and will be breathing compressed air from your cylinder" . Hadn't think of it.

comment What are the real dangers of climbing at high altitude?
@ShemSeger: Brilliantly said, "..despite evolution/adaptation, the effects of altitude are the same, some people's bodies are just better at dealing with the effects, and can last a bit longer at dangerously high altitude." Totally agree!

comment What are the real dangers of climbing at high altitude?
@ShemSeger: I added the Mountaineering tag. I thought it was necessary to have it there, since we are discussing effects of high altitudes in a mountaineer than someone who is born and brought-up and/or stay up at higher altitudes. Discussing about people who permanently reside at higher altitudes could open a whole new pandora box of thoughts and examples.

comment Arm compression sleeves for climbing
@Charles: You rightly said *when the compression of the cuff exceeds your blood pressure, blood flow below the cuff will stop", and then you said, "It doesn't have anything to do with increasing blood flow through the arm".. Personally I find that it has got all to with the Blood Flow, and I was trying to prove a point about effects of Compression on Blood vessels.

@ben: And, obviously, if its blood flow that is not only applicable to a climber, but also to some Fast Bowler as well.

@BenediktBauer: See the edits, I was having a word with my sister while I was typing, I knew the end result about Blood flow, didn't know the HOW part of it so couldn't add up the complex data then and there itself. Hope it answers the question now.

comment What is the best mountaineering quote that you have ever read?
@Everything: Makes sense. I got into some serious mountaineering when I was 17 and I think the credit goes to the mountaineering books that I read just out of curiosity. Some of the quotes inspired me a lot, some incidences (written in books) drew me mad about mountains. This was where I began..
