Off topic: faking Mount Everest, fair cake division, train departure boards, mistaken for dead

Climb every mountain, except in Nepal: Couple banned after apparently faking photos of Mount Everest climb. Let them eat cake, but how do mathematicians fairly divide it (and other things)? Departure boards: That train’s about to leave the station. And truly, reports of their deaths have been greatly exaggerated: on being added to the Death Master File, a Social Security Administration database, by mistake.
