What are the haps my friends

December 15th, 2010: Yesterday was actually the 99-year anniversary, to the day, of Amundsen reaching the south pole! I wish I could take the credit for such good planning, but it was a big coincidence, spurred on by the pictures of T-Rex at the south pole (!!!) that I received.

Also I should underscore that Utahraptor's story over the past few days was about DINOSAUR polar explorers with very similar names, which kinda makes the story even more awesome. I am a firm believer in the "when in doubt make everyone dinosaurs" school of historical storytelling.
