This article reminds us how far the human race will go to the ends of the planet. Not for sightseeing though, but as part of a long migratory trek out of ‘eden’. We said last year that perhaps we could get to Oymyakon, where barely a few hundred souls eke out a living.
But can you imagine living in the equivalent of the outback in the cold?
For us though, we still prefer the cold to the heat. You see we are folks with a lot of sweat pores. So we drip sweat in the humid heat. Hence the preference for somewhere cooler and the prevalence of our writings about somewhere freezing, not that we’d necessarily make the journey to live there permanently.
One thing’s for sure. It appears that it shall be hard to do some basic things in life, such as taking a bath or a leak. Peeling away many layers of clothing only to have them put back on again. Freeze drying your laundry… And that invariable shiver when you put on crisp (no pun intended) newly
freeze dried cleaned clothes that has come straight from the coldpress cupboard. Consolation could be that you don’t need a fridge.
Alright. A meaningless ramble today. We told you we do this on occasion.
Think about it. It would surely take a big fat hardship allowance to induce anyone to move out there. And it was ever offered to you with lots of money, would you take it up?
