Any idiot can face a crisis; it's day to day living that wears you out.

Inspired by the wealth of history contained with the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallary, Henry has decided that he wants to follow in the footsteps of the bloody idiots great Antarctic explorers of the early twentieth century.

Consequently, I have fashioned him a sturdy yacht made out of an old bath, and will see him off next week.

Godspeed, young man!

If the young man wishes to sail in relative comfort then I have another bath here. He can fasten the two together and form a catamaran.
Ice breaking capabilities I am in doubt of. He might also need an extra coat or two.
Good luck with the mission.

Those bloody great idiots were frankly, totally awesome. Still idiots.

But I for one don't want Jack to try and outdo Shackleton, so I can sympathize ;)

Hope he doesn't forget the way to India, like one Columbus
