Is it a Big Dead Place?
"You're talking about the south polar region, the most inaccessible continent, a block of ice renowned as the most distant psychological space on the planet.
Except by the IRS, who claims that Antarctica is part of the United States for tax purposes. This results in a paycut for an American at the South Pole who would otherwise be rewarded if he or she worked for NSF or Raytheon in Canada or the Bahamas or in Europe, none of which are the coldest, deadest, place in the world."
Apparently Antarctica breeds sarcasm. Let's hope that certain Congressmen don't read and change their minds about certain raises in the NSF budget.
