Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod climb Mount Everest


An Indian couple, Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod, recently climbed Mount Everest in their imaginations, using Photoshop to achieve the desired results. They weren’t very good with Photoshop, and their ruse was easily detected, with the Nepal government banning them from the mountain for ten years.



When informed of the Indian couple’s achievements, North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un immediately asked to climb Mount Everest, as well.
