"Icebound ship in Antarctica edges closer to rescue"

I was going to complain that if it was in Antarctica it would be on land already, but after reading the article and finding out it isn't inching anywhere but frozen solid waiting for the icebreaker, I haven't the energy.

Trapped in sea ice during Antarctic summer? Clearly proof global warming is fake. And gay.

I didn't see that from TFA, but Wilford Brimley and his Moustache of Awesomeness was aboard?

Hey, Jack, these are highly respected peer reviewed "Researchers" for AGW.
Show proper respect.
Now, nuke that sucker from orbit, have you not seen that movie?

I think the thing would have fared a lot better if it just chilled out as the dog and didn't turn into head crabs or Wilford Brimley and stuff.

They were looking for ice.
They found it.

Actually, the researchers were apparently just film crews, who are getting a much closer look at the ice than they bargained for.

I don't know what it is, but whatever it is, it's weird and pissed off.

What I thought was nice about that story is that we had Russian, Chinese and Australians all working together to free the ship.

Except for the Russians asking for a bribe, the Chinese offering to sell them a cheap ice crushing machine, and the Australians chortling "You call that a ship?".

Even if that was the case would they still be working together or maybe just interacting.

Coffee taste a little funny this morning?

In my humble opinion, *NO* film version ever got near the creepiness / scariness level of the original print story, John W. Campbell's 'Who Goes There'.

... of course, the first time I ever read the story, I was in high school, it was the proverbial Dark and Stormy Night (tm), I was alone in a creaky old 140 year old farmhouse, and I was in fact the only human being in over one and a quarter square miles...

... and my best buddy first read the story when *he* was in high school, and he was working the graveyard shift at a convenience store in the Middle of Farking Nowhere (tm), all alone...  except when someone would wander into the store around 2 AM or so...
