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.

Which is thicker - the ice or the Catlin expeditioners?

No signs from our heroes on the Catlin expedition that they intend to evacuate from the Arctic, despite concerns that today is the last day they can safely allow an aeroplane to land.

This could mean one of two things: after taking measurements, the expeditioners are convinced that the ice is thick enough for safe aeroplane landings, or they are just not very bright. Following events so far, neither eventuality can be entirely ruled out.

(Meanwhile, another expedition has found the ice is surprisingly thick. However, it is unclear if this work should be taken seriously, since the expeditioners have not sat around in frozen sleeping bags for days tending to their frost-bite.)
