Scafell Pike was in the news recently, when four people had to be rescued because they were so wasted that they couldn’t make it back down.

What a waste of the police and rescue volunteer’s valuable time…
Mind you, this sort of thing has been going on for a very long time. I remember a story I was told as a kid; about some geezer who went up a mountain and was given a couple of tablets. He stayed up there so long the people had time to build a statue (which itself caused a bit of ruckus). I mean, OK, so the guy had been abandoned as a child, and probably had a few issues as a consequence – but even so, it’s no excuse. Don’t do drugs!
Oh. I remembered the name of the guy in the story. “Moses”.
