Have you seen the world outside this ship? It's a wasteland, a desert. Civilization's been and gone, man. There are no lemon-soaked paper napkins on the way from anywhere!

The statistical likelihood is that other ships will return.  There will one day be lemon soaked paper napkins.

But there will rise another civilization and there will be again lemon-soaked papers napkins.

This is why no one should ever book a cruise to Frogstar B.  Or the Antarctic.

They knew what they where getting in for when they bought thier tickets

If you're taking a cruise to Antarctica, STFU if anything ice-related happens.

Because Antarctica.

I don't get the headline. Am I just stupid?

abhorrent1: I don't get the headline. Am I just stupid?


Na... I'm guessing that Subs was just being cute.  I don't know of anyone who has rubbed a lemon on their hygiene without being sick or wanting a sharp burning sensation that does not stop without water or passing out.
 
2013-12-29 12:08:36 PM
Screw the lemon-scented napkins. Bring vodak and orange juice!

abhorrent1: I don't get the headline. Am I just stupid?


Nope, just not interweb savvy. Second result on Google:

"We are currently awaiting the loading of our complement of small, lemon-soaked paper napkins for your comfort, refreshment, and hygiene during the flight, which will be of two hours duration. Meanwhile we thank you for your patience. The cabin crew will shortly be serving coffee and biscuits... again.  "

It's from Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

Because weather = climate right?

And how did you pierce this clever cover-up. I discovered it in the very first article I read. It was printed right there on the page. Very sneaky of them to hide it in plain sight like that ... I almost missed it.

If you read Lee Iaccoca's autobiography, you'll see that the most important person at a newspaper -- and do I dare say, on Fark, is the headline editor, not the person who wrote the article?  Read a book sometime or maybe invest in a Kindle moran!

Actually, I'd wondered why somebody didn't come by and sell the passangers some lemon napkins so they could take off. It's the very definition of a captive marketplace.
 
2013-12-29 12:19:05 PM
No point coming home, we've already passed the Shoe Event Horizon. Unless they grow wings, of course.
 
2013-12-29 12:21:01 PM
Anymore rescue ships get stuck in the ice?  I'm thinking the people on the original ship should just start walking from one stuck ship to the next. It would take awhile, but, at the rate things are going, they might be able to walk back to New Zealand.  Anyway, it sounds like the "trip of a lifetime". I mean, I live in the Chicago area, and if I want to get away, the Antarctic is always #1.

lemon-soaked papers napkins.

Hell, it's summer. Whar's that resupply of mints and juleps?

Once a civilization passes the Shoe Event Horizon, it is incapable of producing anything but shoes. There might have been a demand for lemon napkins but no one to meet it. It's a cautionary tale about the dangers of supply-side economics.

Exactly. The unbiased, unskewed headline should have read "Global warming proven a hoax because water got cold and froze!  Stupid libs!"
 
2013-12-29 12:27:57 PM
"A French icebreaker has also tried to help."
Then it promptly surrendered to Antarctica and created Icey France in the non ice covered areas of France.

The old BBC one, pretty funny.

The books should be required reading during middle school.

The nearby Chinese icebreaker has a helicopter which may not work since they fly up-side-down at the South Pole.

If only there was some activity that humans could engage in that would reduce the build up of antarctic sea ice, especially in the summer....

People still go on cruises? Has there been a cruise that wasn't plagued with food poisoning or power outages or cracking up on shallow reefs in the past ten years?
