Transformative Work in the Antarctic - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
Transformative Work in the Antarctic
My friend Lynn sent this article excerpt  to me in the 1990s.  No matter where you go, you will find people retelling and reshaping stories.

"Antarctic Life Proves Hard Even for Those Who Love Their Work" ... How boring is life in the Antarctic? People in one group wintering at the South Pole in the 1960s watched the film "Cat Ballou" 87 times. People in another, after tiring of the westerns, Disney features and pornographic films on hand, spliced the movies together into their own production and adopted a vocabulary based on their creation that was so strange that relief crews arriving in the spring could barely understand them. "

PS. This may also help explain My Little Pony slash.
