That's the true spirit of Christmas; people being helped by people other than me.


Continuing our preparation for the conquering the pole, I've set Ezra on an extracting regimen of САМозащита Без Оружия.

If the lads are expected to survive the tests that crossing Antarctica barefoot (we need more sponsorship money for proper shoes) will throw at them, a sound knowledge encyclopaedic knowledge of the fighting arts is vital. I expect that the Emperor Penguins will not take too kindly to interlopers, and thus my intrepid explorers must be ready to take all comers.

Sambo will give them this. I have it on good authority that penguins are well versed in ju-jitsu...

Sambo? Unarmed combat? Why not just take a big stick and hit the penguins over the head. From what I've seen of Emperor Penguins they are very standoffish. Would rather run away rather than fight.
And why do the kids have to cross Antarctica barefoot? Have them see me and I will finance footwear for them.

He seems to be calculating the precise time of day by his shadow. An important talent to have.

He is quite the rugged individualist.
