    Back to an original interpretation of "Pounding Sand"?

    If so, they are better men than me.

    Those "Malaysian officials" are in a hot seat for a good reason. When a measly 5.9 quake kills so many people, one should wonder about their building code violations and enforcement. Perhaps the "sprit of the mountain" was more offended by the official corruption and incompetence than a few random sunbathers.

    Eleanor Hawkins: British backpacker pleads guilty to 'obscene acts' after stripping on Malaysian mountain

    A British woman who stripped on a sacred mountain in Malaysia has pleaded guilty to committing an "obscene act".

    Eleanor Hawkins, 23, was with a group of 10 backpackers at the summit of Mount Kinabalu who were seen taking their clothes off for celebratory photos on 30 May.

    She admitted the offence during an appearance at Kota Kinabalu Magistrates' Court this morning, the BBC reported.
