On A Conversation With Peter Rejcek, Editor of 'The Antarctic Sun'

Ok, how far south do you have to go to see Aurora Australis? I was just in Ushuaia and Puerto Arenas and never saw it. Or was that because it's summer right now and not much night time?

When I was in Ushuaia, I saw a Jeep with NY plates! Turns out they got laid off, bought the Jeep and said let's go to Antarctica. So they drove.

On I'm a 41

@Bebe I have done this (but I'm a dude). It mostly happens on planes to destinations like Coachella where lots of like-minded people are stuffed together. Although I have also been invited to a random party in the Paris Metro once.

Half the McGraw Hill building looks like it's evacuated to the street/perfect excuse to have a smoke.
