I'll request the DVD from the library.

Next, they'll put up a Starbucks at McMurdo Station. Then they'll install a wireless network. Soon, it will be just like every other place in the world, but with more penguins.

There were bars there for a lot longer. I probably shouldn't be surprised.

I'll bet that must be a wild place to party.

couldn't resist...
Here's independent confirmation of that.

So if we were at McMurdo, waiting to be eaten by a giant thawed-out space vegetable, we would have ready access to $20 bills.

What did they do before the ATM, just let people run a tab? It's not like it's that easy to skip town.
