Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Northern knickers fly in the breeze

Minicapt has kindly alerted the ShadowLands to the Catlin Arctic Surveyors' use of a low-tech device to combat frigid conditions.

And one of the commenters at the link has alerted us to the fact that the producers of Top Gear drove to the North Pole in 2007 - a journey that took them a week.

After nearly a month, our brave expeditioners, by comparison, have averaged 4.2 kilometres per day and have more than 800 kilometres still to travel.

While our gallant airheads seem to believe their GPS is useless because the equipment freezes, Top Gear reportedly had no such problems - no doubt due to the modern miracle that is air conditioning.

This is how it's done, greentards.

Give a man a canoe and a self-pull sled and you'll keep him frustratedly toiling for years to no good effect.
Give him a car with an internal combustion engine and his problems are solved in an instant.
