Alert the crew at Big Magnet, and tell them for Chrissakes, be careful this time!

/(so sue me - I still like Campbell's original story better than any of the movie versions.  None of the movies were *bad*, but in my opinion, none of them really nailed the creature.)

When reading any article (especially if it's British) relating to UFOs or Aliens, perform the following steps.
1. CTRL-F "SecureTeam10"
2. If found, abandon the article.

These guys are notorious hoaxers. I think they must have been burned recently, as I haven't seen articles mentioning them in awhile.

Antarctica is supposed to be one of the best places to find meteorites, so technically it is where you would want to look for extraterrestial stuff that was part of UFOs.

Extraterrestial objects stand out on the ice fields. You can find iron meteorites with a metal detector anywhere, but stony meteorites are far more common, and Antarctica is one of the best places to locate them. Many of the rare lunar and martian objects were found in Antarctica.

I think what he means is, if you are looking for parts of UFOs*, it doesn't matter where you look: you ain't gonna find 'em.

* presuming "UFO" means "extraterrestrial spacecraft"

/but, yeah, Antarctica is great for finding meteorites

Every meteorite you find was formerly a UFO, assuming you didn't see it coming down. It was an object, it was flying, and nobody had identified it yet.

Tell that to my Facebook friend who posted these GPS coordinates in bold letters as his status update earlier.

The cloaking devise must've been damaged in the crash.

The article is about South Georgia, folks. That's about 2000 miles from Antarctica.

They're all over the place there.  For real.

My comments were relevant to the subject of alien type UFOs, since Antarctica would be a good place to look for alien spacecraft debris for the same reason as it collects mundane meteorites. They'd be all frozen, yes, but...

Thanks.  I'd been wondering how I was going to remain awake continuously for the next three months...

OK, I've read it.  Thanks!  I had no idea that existed!

Two comments, mostly observations, perhaps with a bit of criticism.

One, it was based off the movies.  They're good movies, but I wish someone would just once go back to the original story.  For my money, that was far more horrifying than any of the films.

Two, the creature's mind / persona seemed believable, but looked to be far more civilized and peaceful (relatively speaking) than the way Campbell depicted it.  He made it clear that it projected a mental impression of rapaciousness, of anger, of hate, of sheer naked implacable rage and hostility.  By comparison, this one seemed almost 'cutesy'.

Of course, it's impossible for me to be impartial about this story.  When I was a kid, I grew up on a dairy farm in the middle of nowhere.  It was over a mile and a half to the nearest house, and there were only three houses in a six mile radius.

One fall evening when I was in my teens, my Mom and Dad went to the annual Dairyman's Banquet.  I was alone in the house.  It got dark, there was nothing on any of our three TV channels, and no one - anywhere.

I sat in the living room, and cracked open 'Who Goes There?', and sat there until I was finished with it.  And I was scared shiatless by that story.  I worked my way up to bed by going to the next room, or the hall, or the stairs, turning on a light, then retreating to the place I left to turn off the light there.

That story still has the power to make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  This version does, as well.

They'll need Daniel to translate, and Teal'c to kick ass.

I was going to call Bravo Sierra on the reindeer claim, but Wikipedia tells me that they were transplanted to provide hunting fodder for whalers.
