Antarctica: It's a Cool Place!
April 29, 2009 7:39 PM Subscribe
is a site dedicated to all things Antarctic. There are pictures
(including, among much else, an old documentary about Edmund Hillary's and Vivian Fuchs' Transantarctic Expedition
), a history section
focusing on the famous explorers (e.g. Amundsen
and de Gerlache
) and a fact file
, which includes what may be my favorite section, an Antarctic slang dictionary
: removing snow that's stuck to clothing before going inside - monk-on
: a term for being in a bad, usually introspective mood, "he's got a monk-on" - poppy
: alcoholic beverage that is chilled with natural Antarctic ice). All this is but a taster of what's on the website.
