i just finished writing a 12 page paper on Antarctic maladies.
my favorite passages:
ascorbic acid (vitamin C) was named such because it prevented scorbutus, a condition more commonly known as scurvy.
a quote stolen from a 2008 winterover:
"(T3 is) a mental state reached as a result of living in the dark for six months on a cold, remote island full of depressed bipolar psychos with constant ADD and PMS."
i miss antarctica.
