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?
