Choose Your Own Antarctic Adventure

halley.jpg Happy New Year! Did you make a resolution? Does it involve adventure? More ice? Sunlight for only half the year? Or perhaps you’re ready to finally pursue your dream career as a Molluscan Palaeontologist.

The British Antarctic Survey has a quiz to help determine whether you’re fit for a life on the desert continent. Here’s a sample:

The Supply Ship - RRS Ernest Shackleton is unable to get to your station and re-supply due to heavy sea ice. The variety of food is beginning to run short and although arrangements have been made to get provisions to the station by air, the station compliment is starting to get frustrated with the lack of fresh fruit and meat. The chef is beginning to exhaust his repertoire of usually wonderful meals. What is your reaction likely to be?

My answer, eat the new guy, wasn’t on the list.

Not cut out for the real thing? Webcams!
