    Judging from what he was wearing, pretty cold. Essentially, the south pole is the coldest place on the Earth.

    Do not....I Repeat......Do Not stick your tongue to that pole. I once watched a documentary called A Christmas Story that proved that theory.

    Thanks a lot for all the kind words, that is really appreciated!
    It was indeed a very impressive experience and something that will last quite a while.

    I could probably talk 2 days about that - what i wont do now - no worries - but i will happily answer all questions.
    The most common once so far ;D

    1) It was cold, yes , fucking cold. On the Pole we had -25° when it was sunny and -40° when it was windy (what is probably -2000 in F , i dont know but something like that ;D)
    2) But thats not really an issue because you have matching clothes, and especially shoes.
    3) Yes we lived in tents, and yes they have been warm enough
    4) Yes we peed in bottles, and we brought two , so that you have one for drinking and one for peeing - poor bastards who had two bottles of the same color
    5) What we did there ? If you have nice weather (see 1) you can do a lot of excursions and exploring, if you are caught in a blizzard (see 1) you learn cribbage and play cards with the pilots
    6) can you kiss the pole ? Yes you can , but you will stick to it as its out of metal and its cold (see 1)

    The cool thing about -40C is that it is also -40F.

    Thanks for sharing your amazing experience!

    hey Seb, very cool photo, but...

    You really should have taken a King book to show on the photo. You would have been the furthest person South EVER to be reading Stephen King!
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    So what kind of trip was it?
    Was it an expedition lasting a few days, weeks, months?
    How were you brought there?
    How many people...?

    Even when it's a lot of money, I think this qualifies as an awesome deal

    I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. I had to sell some stuff I wasn't planning to, but it was well worth it!

    Looks like your streak of good luck is continuing.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.
