The Real Reason The South Pole Is Melting.

This just in from Reuters:
"One of the last shipments to a U.S. research base in Antarctica before the onset of winter darkness was a year's supply of condoms, a New Zealand newspaper reported Monday.

"Bill Henriksen, the manager of the McMurdo base station, said nearly 16,500 condoms were delivered last month and would be made available, free of charge, to staff throughout the year to avoid the potential embarrassment of having to buy them." (Here.)
Let's see, 16,500 condoms divided by 365 days is 45 condoms per day. Whatever gets you through the night, as they say. And the nights are long down there. Cold, too.

Go here for information on job opportunities in Antarctica.
