    So I’ll just put up this striking picture of The Explorer, the Antarctic cruise ship that sank last year. In happier, floatier times. I’m racing with deadlines, like some hapless freerunner with James Bond shooting at him. At least I got my more insane story for X-Men First Class done yesterday, today it’s Gamekeeper. Relevant postings will resume soon.

    There was a cruise ship that went to Antarctica? Why was I not told of this? Going to Antarctica is on my “bucket list.” Was the Explorer replaced?

    Yeah, I want to go too. I’m pretty sure some other ship was lined up to take its place, but I imagine they had to make good on all the people who’s reservations were cancelled first. Everyone got off the ship safely, as it went down reeeallly slow…

    …and spilled tons of oil right near the penguin nesting areas. This kind of trip merely destroys the beauty quicker. Just say no, kids!

    Awwww! Environmental concerns take all the fun out of destroying the planet.

    Well, there’d be no concern if the ships didn’t sink- thanks to man’s oldest enemy…
