Neither would I. It's not 'exploration' by any definition that I know.

(Another reason why the fact above is clearly untrue is that Shackleton defined himself as an 'Irishman' (he was born and mainly brought up in ireland), and hired some Irish crew members.)

My son informed me this morning of the precise number of Hula Hoops that would be necessary to lay end to end in order to reach the moon and that just as soon as he develops his shrink ray he will be using them as a pathway. I wonder whether that could be marketed as a rpoject worth undertaking?

with global warming proceeding, by 2014 Antartica will be shorts, flip flops and sunglasses territory, won't it ?

I've always fancied going to the Antartic, on a cruise ship mind. None of that trapsing about over frozen wastelands with the constant fear of being attacked by rougue penguins.

And then there's the food. The only way to get enough calories in you each day is to eat pats and pats of raw butter? Ugh, no thanks.

"The only prerequisite is 100% commitment."

So would that make most footballers over-qualified as they can only give 110%?

Does less than 100% even count as "commitment", I wonder?

Anything below 99.9% is 'reasonably keen', I'd have thought.

Got something to say?
