There’s a barber shop in Antarctica?

I don’t know what’s down there, what its shape is, what path this group took (if any), but it seems Antarctica explorers are used like 0;space” explorers: for inspiration and science/education promotion.

A team of British soldiers has become the first all-female group to cross Antarctica using only muscle power. After spending 62 days on the ice, the British Army’s Ice Maiden Expedition crossed the finish line at Hercules Inlet on Saturday.

    “They successfully reached the South Pole, only to find a Norwegian team had beaten them to it by 33 days. Scott and four of his team died on their way back to base.”
    Guess he never made it back to eat the cake? The cake is a lie?…

    “We can’t really believe it is over,” she said.
    Neither can I…

    I can think of a story of a team of men and one of women racing to the southpole to dig up the 100 year old cupcake. But one of the teams dies….

    It’s all nonsense, isn’t it.
    No nitty gritty details, just lots of smiling faces.

    It also meshes nicely with the men bad, women good theme which seems to be everywhere at the moment. The most recent trans-antarctic men have either failed or died [allegedly]

    Lt Col Worsley said: “Sadly, I have shot my bolt. “My journey is at an end. I have run out of time,…

    and then shortly afterwards died on cue.

      But a new find by the Antarctic Heritage Trust suggests it’s no match for a 106-year-old British fruitcake.

      Conservators found the elderly cake on Cape Adare, and believe it belonged to British explorer Robert Falcon Scott – known as Scott of the Antarctic.

      Although the tin was rusted, the team said the cake was in “excellent condition” and smelled edible.

      The New Zealand-based trust found it in Antarctica’s oldest building, a hut built by Norwegian explorer Carsten Borchgrevink’s [??] team in 1899, and used by Capt Scott in 1911 during his Terra Nova expedition.

      The polar pioneer was said to be fond of this particular cake, made by the British biscuit company Huntley & Palmers.

      And some pretty product placement at the end…

    Yes the sun never lies. I think the photoslopper made the shadows thinking the sun being in the center top would cast differently to each sledder. The sun exposed the fake Zapruder film footage too.

    Worse than a barber shop, look at this photo:

    This is not in Antarctica.

    Watch the freaking shadows! It’s in a studio. Sunlight should align all shadows alike, this is a spotlight.
