Re: Explorers to Retrace Shackleton's Epic Antarctic Journey
I am from the camp that completely understands the human element of exploration and why we put men on the moon, not just robots.
But when there is no more exploratory value to be had, I find it less admirable to take what I read was a 50/50 risk with human life. I'm all for an adventure, just for the sake of it, but the odds need to be much better than that.
Must just be me. Good luck them anyway.
It ain't just you. Shackleton's epic voyage was a tale of survival
- while also being an adventure, that aspect was purely incidental.
This one reeks of "stunt".
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
