I think I started the whole category of reading things on the internet instead of doing my job, way back in ’98. You guys can try, if you like. But I started it.

[Ed. Note: Huckabeast’s comment is from last Friday, which seems a little odd, but comments from Friday are actually not taken into account for that Friday’s Monsters’ Ball, rather they’re taken into account for the follow Friday’s Monsters’ Ball, so it’s actually not that odd at all! Okay?! CONGRATS GUYS! Thank you for hanging out with me here and making jokes, you’re all very good at it.]

Ah, but in the ’80s there were still dogs in Antarctica. They were kind of an anachronism by then, though – more like pets than practical transportation – and basically just kept around for reasons of historical inertia and cuteness.

Most accounts of the Scott v. Admunsen race to the South Pole emphasize their different attitudes toward dogs (Scott: weak sled pullers but good companions; Admunsen: good sled pullers and good eatin’) as one of the main reasons Admunsen won, so dogs had a special place in Antarctica partly because of that.
