How Tall is Everest

I find this article fascinating and amusing. The author chose the words well. Could be some subtle puns here and there. Also Mr. Sherpa appears here. Such a wonderful name for the leader of a hiking club. And Nepal's relationship with India is frosty.

Do we count the snow or not? And should we measure from sea level or from the center of the earth?

Much OCD to enjoy here.
