Mar 7, 2009: Down a Well

This is a very cool picture, with a very strange caption, from the English Russia website.



Quote:
Anton Chekalin has visited Russian Antarctic station and has shot there some interesting places.
For example, what you see on the photo above is the Russian water well. The have made a 16 feet (5 meters) deep hole in the ice and there they can get fresh water from somewhere, so when person gets in there he can see sun trying to penetrate through this many feet thick ice.
Apparently in Antarctica they made a hole in the ice, down to an ice cave, where they can get fresh water... somewhere.
But looking at the angle between the stepladder legs, the size of the light spot below the ladder, and the angle of the shadow of the ladder, it's hard for me to believe it goes up another 16 feet.

Oh well, I like the picture.

That ladder isn't going thru ice, it's going up thru clouds. The Russians are trying to get to the land of Jack and the Beanstalk.

My friend's Dad used to call me Chernobyl (my given name if you remove the nob) because of the mess I left in the bathroom. He said it looked like a disaster area, and wondered how such a tiny creature - as I was in my teens - could displace that amount of water.

Everything is changed when you remove the nob.

Trust me, I'd never even seen one in those days!
Except the one or two glimpses of my Dad's - in a completely non-paedo-bad-timing-towel-slipping way.

Or, it could be the entrance the underground lair of Hans Moleman. You know, where he keeps his earthquake machine and stuff.
