Antarctica is populated by drunks.  Next time you people tell me that people have seen this or that in Antarctica, I will ask if they also saw pink elephants and point to this article, lol.

Plenty of tourists and mountain climbers that go there to complete the Explorers Grand Slam.  Are they drunk too?

I wish I could go there too, to hang out with the partying scientists.  Ooh, the stories I would come back with.  It sounds better than Daytona Beach at spring break.

You don't find it amusing that the government of the US is considering sending breathalyzers to Antarctica to make sure that the scientists are not drunk as hell when doing their jobs down there?  This is comedy gold.

What, drunk people can't do great things?
Did you know Beethoven was drunk? Are you implying he was a bad composer?
Van Gogh certaintly was very much drunk, you are basically saying he was a bad painter.

Mikhail Gorbatsjov was drunkest of them all, and he ended the cold war and freed Berlin. You are saying that was a bad thing. Why would you say that, are you really that evil? Why do you hate freedom and human rights?

How is this different than other corporations? 

You stated you are a Marine.  I know for a fact the US government tests the military with breathalyzers and urine tests.

Alcohol abuse is not a laughing matter.

I disagree. When he's posting here or looking for stuff to post here, he's not trying to spread ignorance elsewhere.

Yep, I agree, it's pretty funny.    I mean,  the nearest bar must be thousands of miles away.   But then the chances of being picked up for DUI are pretty slim...  :)

Drug and alcohol testing is commonplace within companies and corporations - did you not know this?

You're clutching at straws again if you think your first post in any way has some relevance to your stance that Antarctica is somehow being misrepresented.

Awaiting your predictably lame reply with anticipation.

There are many drunk people in Ireland, does that mean that Ireland doesn't exist?  According to your source, not all Antarctica scientists drink.  Flat earthers are getting very desperate for evidence.  Perhaps you should consider the possibility that the lack of evidence for flat Earth has something to do with the Earth not being flat.

Wanna take another crack? All this is for interest, the evidence for the Earth being flat is overwhelming. The debate's over, whether you want to admit it or not.

The South Pole is a funny place for both REs and FEs. The sun rises in October and sets in March for about 4 400 hrs of day light over Christmas/New Year = South Pole summer. Then follow 4 400 hrs of darkness/winter. Reason is that the Sun is then shining above the North Pole for 4 400 hrs. I understand that SP locals = scientists (LOL) drink in the evening April to June that is 2 200 hrs long.  What else to do? Watch the snow flakes dropping?

Care to name just one bit of evidence that actually stands up to scrutiny?
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by ignorance or stupidity.

It's obvious you cannot name even one bit of evidence that actually stands up to scrutiny. If you could, you would, but you can't, so you don't. The reason you can't is because there is none. There's no evidence (none, zero, zip, nil, nada, {}) that the Earth is flat because the Earth isn't flat. If you think there is evidence, let's see it.

There are a lot of arguments presented here that purport to show the Earth is flat. All of them are total bunk and have been shown to be exactly that. If you know of even one case were you think this is not true, let's see it. Instead of saying "go find it", why not tell us which arguments

Maybe they drink because they reached the edge of the earth and couldn't handle what they saw when they looked into the abyss.

The evidence is OVERWHELMING?  Really?

What is the most overwhelming piece of evidence that the earth is flat?

I did some science this past weekend.  Most of a liter of bourbon and a case of beer worth of science, in fact.  I think I missed my calling; I could have been an Antarctic scientist.  Science is great!  ;D
