On friends and mountains

In a recent scientific study, people standing at the base of a steep hill were asked to gauge the difficulty of the climb. Those who had a friend standing next to them consistently rated the climb as being less difficult than people who were looking at the hill by themselves. And people who had their best friend beside them said the climb didn't look too hard at all.
