But then you've got the Indian couple who were banned for faking their climb. The pair, who are also police officers, doctored photos of someone else's climb to make it look like they reached the peak, and the Nepalese government went full Yeti by tossing the same ten-year ban at them that everyone else gets. Keep in mind, these people did pay the $11,000 for permits and actually did climb the mountain, just not all the way. The reason seems to be reputation-based. Climbing Everest is some important, inspirational s**t, and you can't have just anyone posting it on their LinkedIn profile.

You Can Get Banned From All City Properties For Complaining Too Much
It's one thing to get banned from a Chuck E. Cheese for a drunken act you don't even remember until you see the video go viral the next day, but what does it take to get banned by a city government? Is that even a thing? Apparently, because it's what Statham, Georgia is doing to Catherine Corkren, on the charge of being incredibly annoying.
Corkren had made it a habit to attend every single city council meeting in Statham, founded by the great Jason Statham . The town has a population of under 3,000, and Corkren isn't one of them. She lives in Atlanta, which is over 50 miles away. But for 18 months, she attended all of their meetings, filed over 100 requests for documents at City Hall, and s**t on the local politicians on social media. This was all because in 2015, Corkren's former partner, who has since passed, was stopped in Statham on a traffic violation, which turned into a legal battle that Corkren is carrying on.
