"We're in the Antarctica right now."

Here is the tale of the race to the South Pole that happened 100 years ago this month. You can't even blame these folks for ripping off "Drunk History" because they made this thing in Antarctica because they live in Antarctica. Can you imagine how bored you must get? (May I suggest new chapters of "Trapped in the Closet" next?) "Now fast forward, and it's not that fast of a forward" is definitely going into my storytelling phrase bag. [Thanks, Shayla!]

I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but when you find the time, I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter tied to this fucking couch.

It needs to be alone and in close proximity to a life form in order to be absorbed. The chameleon strikes in the dark.

Who knew there were so many cute dudes in Antarctica??

Katie Scarlett

@liznieve My first thought too.

My second thought?
Ro... Ro... Row-ald? Row-ald. ROW-ALD. ROW-ALD.

liznieve

@liznieve oh, and CUTE LADY, too.

@liznieve seconded, to all of that. Antarctica might be the foxiest continent per capita.

Hot Doom

Those are some stone-cold foxes right there.

Antarctica: where winter boyfriends last all year long!

@travelmugs They're all really cute. And surrounded by books and globes. And I've had a big history crush on Shackleton since I watched some documentary in high school. Seriously, Antarctica: I want to go to there.

The South Pole: a lot more fun than the North Pole, that's for sure! That's pretty much all I got out of this video. Also I have the biggest explorer crush. The area around 10 mins in where he's talking about Robert Scott and the rocks he collects is beautiful.

Another one here who's a bit obsessed with the Antarctic! I'm blaming Kim Stanley Robinson's 'Antarctica' for starting me off. This was hilarious.

Thank you for this, Jane!

Who wants to start a fund for a group trip to Antarctica? Primarily for man hunting, of course.

Jon Custer

I'm all for dressing sharp, but where exactly were they planning to wear those suits in Antarctica? Or did they pack them specifically so they could play olden-times explorer dress-up?

hopelessshade

@Jon Custer I would like to believe that to be true, yes I would.
