Scientists will climb a mountain just to play multiplayer games

Perhaps on a quest to roleplay a Mountain Dew commercial, a group of computer scientists in Malaysia are hoping to climb Mount Kinabalu and set up a LAN party. This would enable the 12 person team to play an online game against each other, and quietly ignore the majesty and wonder the mountain’s summit naturally provides. Let us all remember this and be shamed the next time we can’t be bothered to go to the convenience store to grab a 2L bottle of Diet Fresca.
