    Crazy story.

    The Shackleford story is a really good story too, that was the crossing he was trying to replicate.

    I mean, it's unfortunate that he died and all, but it is kind of badass at the same time. Talk about a real old-school way to die.

    It'd be like dying from scurvy out at sea or some bubonic shit in a castle.

    Do you think there will ever be a virus that wipes out 6 billion people and cannot be cured?

    Probably not all 6. 2 or 3 would be bad enough.

    Oh, just saying there's danger everywhere. I have a very comfy couch, too, so this applies to me as well.

    He had a wife. How about thinking of her before you you take your hike? But he just has to trek alone in the most uninhabitable conditions. If he had a radio for contact why didn't he call for help a little earlier? What some men will do to get away from the wife.

    B.O.B. Just Started a Rap War With Neil DeGrasse Tyson Over His Flat Earth Tweets

    Late last night, rapper B.O.B. let us all in on the little-known secret that the Earth is, in fact, flat. It was then that prominent astrophysicist and killjoy Neil DeGrasse Tyson decided to rain on his parade with “science” and “facts.” Undeterred, B.O.B. has now responded by dropping a diss track that features none other than Tyson himself.

    It’s worth noting here that there’s also something called the “ice wall,” which is the towering expanse of maybe absolute zero, pitch black ice barriers at the edge of Antartica that may or may not go on forever and that no human could ever possibly explore.

    Perhaps this will help explain:
