"Why would that woman ask if there was serious bleeding?
He's been saying the entire time that his arm is cut off... there`s gonna be some blood!"

Her job is to try to help him stay calm and out of shock. She is asking him simple questions to calm him down and try to distract him somewhat from what just happened (kinda pointless on something this big but worth a shot), I`m sure she knew there was a lot of blood and was just trying to do her job....or she is a complete moron, which is quite possible.

"When faced with a choice of starving to death or cutting his own arm off, the climber bravely took the more painful option to save his life. If thats not good enough for you then whatever, but it takes a hero to do something like that. Anyone else would cry and say 'oh theres nothing I can do now...it`s my time to go`."

So if someone killed one of their friends and ate them because he was starving to death in the rocky mountains he would be a hero because he "bravely took the more painful option to save his life"? Just because you do something desperate, it doesn`t make you a hero. Survival brings out the most uncivilized and inhuman qualities of a person, either for better or for worse.
