Beerorkid – a bunch of useless crap |



got a postcard from Antarctica


It was still cold when I grabbed it from the mailbox. My buddy has 24 more days there.

This is a cool article about living there for 5 month stints.

The 53-year-old McMurdo is by far the largest of the continent’s three permanent American stations. No country is allowed to own any part of the continent; when you’re in a country’s station, you’re in an outpost of that country. So phone calls home cost normal domestic rates, and we have a regular U.S. area code. This leads to amusing wrong-number calls at work: “No, sir, you’ve called Antarctica.” Domestic postage rates are also in effect, allowing one guy I know to belong to Netflix.
