    I just happened to come across a myspace page for some group looking to make Antarctica a country. I think it's a joke, but who knows. But it brings up some thought-provoking ideas. Here's a link if anyone wants to know what I'm talking about.

    MySpace.com - The Antarctic Indepenence Movement - 99 - Male - www.myspace.com/antarcticindependence

    Anyways, it made me more observant of global discussions. Like, this board doesnt even have a place for Antarctic news except general global. I know it's a science haven, but you never hear about what's going on in Antarctica. In fact, I never thought about it's political status before. Will Antarctica ever become the center of a political struggle. If it does have coal and oil, will countries all of a sudden want to to exploit it?

    I don't know...what do others think?

    I think we should open up Antactica for exploration and mining of its valuable ice resources.

    You can never have too much of that stuff on hand when company comes and I for one am tired of having to make my own artifical ice in those little trays in my freezer, when there's so much nature ice to be had.

    And I think we'd better do this quickly before the commies take it over too.

    Ya'll do know what happens if the communists take over Antarctica don't you?

    Well, for the first five years nothing happens.... then they run out of ice.

    I think we should invade the place and install a true democratic government. I'm with editec on this one...it's all about the ice!

    I believe that's the Hammer and Ice-sickle, comrade.

    The important question is...what are the political leanings of the penguins? I saw March of the Penguins, & unfortunately they look like commies to me.

    I understand that there's a fiar amount of homosexual behavior among those birds, too.

    Can we really trust them to honor contracts with us?

    I'm afraid we're going to have to solve the penguin problem before we become the world's ice kings.

    Perhaps we need to start arming polar bears.

    We can armor them and give them steel claws, that was just such a neat movie.

    I was thinking more like American made LAWS rockets and poison gas because those would be good for the economy (bad for the taxpayers, of course, but when has that ever stopped us?)
