    Before I even watch this video : I know I'll never get these minutes back in my life. But.......(gun shot sound) here I am again. I think before I watch another one in my life , I'll just consider having the domino's pizza dude just haul off and slap me. Til then... Let's see what's so amazing about crap I got floating in my aquarium that just got celebrity status from being viewed in ( wooooo- ing sound) Antarctica. " Shoot me now!"

    Wait till the actual news about what's going on under the ice is made public. 2.5 miles under the ice. It blows my mind that the thickest part of the ice down there is an astounding 13 miles and change. Everest cant even compete with that. Not even in the same league. Everest cheats and sits on a kiddie seat.

    Of course there's life under the ice because it's still earth, there's no life on other planets in the solar system because it's much colder (290 degrees below zero) isn't 90 below and 800 degree Fahrenheit isn't 140, when the sun begins to become a red giant other planets will get there chance to have life like Mars and even some of Jupiter's moons, only time will tell...

    See, here's the thing I've been mulling...there are a lot of people poking, digging, building, dynamiting, drilling into these ice caps. Has anyone considered that maybe this is contributing to their destructuion and the warming of the oceans? Ice doesn't have the same properties as rock, it is dynamic. Ice melts, shifts and changes naturally, but it does these things at a faster pace after it's been compromised. Take an ice cube whole, and another of equal mass with a hole drilled into it and see which one melts first. I get it, science. But who is overseeing science? They can do whatever they want, blast into meteors, dig into the ice caps, fly literally tons of garbage into our atmosphere with no thought to retrieving it when it's usefulness has passed, bring space samples into our planet, no idea what they may contain or release, same when digging up ancient tombs. They're cloning living creatures, maybe a human, who knows bc they don't need permission... where does it end and how does having a degree from a school give them the right to do these things unchecked and as much as they want? What if they release some ancient microbe thats been buried in the ice for thousands of years. I'm actually a serious fan of science but lately I'm concerned there are no boundaries and no consideration of what chain reactions they could spark.
