    let me guess: lungs float because they’re full of air (what are Antarctic researchers’ method to sleeping in the summer? draw the blinds?)

    The problem is that lungs are attached to the rest of the body that you have to keep afloat.

    Take care and may God bless.

    Can you imagine him calling his dogs to come here by saying “Here, I Know,” Here, you know" and “Here, I don’t know?”

    I knew a guy who spent a year there working for the scientists at McMurdo. Yeah, they blackout the windows with blinds and blackout curtains in the summer or did back in the 70s. They had to install special lights in the sun’s wavelength to prevent emotional problems in the winter and also to let them have some natural vitamin D. Apparently human’s don’t do well under florescent light for very long. He said in winter it was so cold that you could feel your cheeks freeze if you were even in one of the unheated garages, let alone the OMG! wind chill factors in winter.

    I’m surprised he didn’t name the other two dogs Who and What.

    Just remember the summertime in Antarctica is from September to March next year. The rest is wintertime.

    As with the antarctic circle, the same is true with the arctic circle.
