And why is there an American flag there..?
User avatar #3 to #1 - Trrave (01/17/2013) [-]
Is it an American expedition?
#4 to #3 - anon (01/17/2013) [-]
I don't know. There are many countryes who are claiming to "own" the South pole. Many of those countryes are working and researching the place. Still, I don't see why it's so important to put the flag there. I mean, if there some Americans walking in to my house and put a flag there. They would claim it as a part of the US. Hust like the moon :)
User avatar #5 to #4 - Trrave (01/17/2013) [-]
I don't think it is so much of a 'This is now American soil" type of thing. More just, 'Hey look! We are from the US and we are proud of it". I mean it isn't like they are the Conquistadors or something. I could be wrong, but I believe that is what is going on. And as for the moon, I don't think we ever claimed it. =)

You can say all countries have their downfalls but to say " **** all countries" is simply the most ungrateful thing you can ever say, period, you ******* ******* . Nobody ever cares about what good countries do. Nobody credits the scientific advancement, artistic achievement, or just sheer innovation of any country. Saying " **** X" or " **** Y" while discrediting how great those things are is just ignorant, and the fact that you stupid ***** don't realize this just shows how much of an intellectual cesspool the Internet is. Stop bitching and start appreciating the grandeur of life and society.
User avatar #131 to #121 - megatrollinator (01/17/2013) [-]
I'll appreciate it when they actually talk about it. The very reason these kind of things go unnoticed is because humanity is drawn to negative actions. They thrive on seeing others feel bad, because it makes them feel better about themselves.

I hate just about every country on Earth for their short comings, but I also respect them for their advancements.

Those people were genius'. They were the first people in their field to change the way society thought about the world. Society previously believed religion was the reason behind everything for 1700 years and these genius' managed to change everyone's perspective with their findings. So that is why I am proud they're British.
User avatar #112 to #109 - smokedmeatlog (01/17/2013) [-]
But being British has nothing to do with it, so you cannot include it in your argument. Would they be any less of geniuses if they were born in America from the same parents and got the same basic education?
User avatar #119 to #112 - shizzlekicks (01/17/2013) [-]
The reason why they were able to do all of this research was because every other country in the world had religious figures controlling over scientific research and if it went against religious teachings then they would destroy their experiment. In Britain the religious figures allowed scientific research to be carried out and they were allowed to publish their findings. Also the aristocracy invested in steam technology and what happened? We became the wealthiest country in the world. What did the aristocracy of other countries do about steam technology? They kept their money and thought it wouldn't catch on therefore they weren't able to develop and progress as a nation unlike Great Britain!
User avatar #141 to #119 - smokedmeatlog (01/17/2013) [-]

User avatar #160 to #94 - BmanX (01/18/2013) [-]
I'm not talking about its smoothness. I'm talking about it's overall shape. So, if you shaved the top layer of mountains off, it wouldn't be a sphere. It would be slightly more oval.

The south and north poles are not just symbolic. They are the magnetic points of the earth.

Although I get what you're trying to say.
#57 to #45 - anon (01/17/2013) [-]
Nope, magnetic north is not the same as true north
User avatar #58 to #57 - generaljosh (01/17/2013) [-]
Both magnetic north and true north have actual meaning. Magnetic north/south are the center of the earth's magnetic fields, and true north/south are the axis about which the earth rotates.
User avatar #61 to #58 - pebar (01/17/2013) [-]
I think he means theyre not the same thing. The north pole is actually the magnetic south pole, and the magnetic north pole is in antarctica. Think about it. If you take a compus, the north end of the magnet points north, but keep in mind like ends repel.
User avatar #68 to #61 - smokedmeatlog (01/17/2013) [-]
No, compasses take in account for that, but i do see the logic behind your point.
User avatar #78 to #68 - pebar (01/17/2013) [-]
"Speaking of flipping, did you know that Earth's North Magnetic Pole is actually a south pole? Huh, what? When compasses were first invented, people noticed that one end of the compass pointed towards the North. They called the end of the compass needle that pointed North the "north end" of the needle (makes sense!). Later, people learned more about magnets. They learned that like ends (a north and a north OR a south and a south) push away from each other. They learned that opposite ends (such as a north and a south) pull toward each other. The needle of a compass is a tiny bar magnet. The north end of the needle is pulled toward Earth's North Magnetic Pole. So the North Magnetic Pole is actually the south pole of Earth's magnetic field. Doesn't that just make your brain ache!"

User avatar #84 to #82 - pebar (01/17/2013) [-]
Compasses are extremely simple. The only way they could account for it is if the magnet inside was mislabeled. But today, everyone accepts north is north (can't say it any better) so if compasses did that, people would just get angry.

Okay, listen up mother ****** . First off, he meant circling around the earths axis of rotation, you dumb bitch.

Show me where he said he could pass in all the timezones in 8 seconds. He wasn't specific enough to say timezones, he just said around the world, which means all of the ************* goddamn countries.
User avatar #124 to #107 - FailureToComply (01/17/2013) [-]
I'm not sure what part of this you don't understand..

Countries: Areas of land separated by imaginary border lines, agreed upon through political (and less recently war-related) means. You can find these lines on a map.

Time Zones: 24 areas of the world, split along lines perpendicular to the equator, that converge at either pole (north and south). In each zone, the time is one hour earlier or later than the zone before it, depending on direction of travel. Two zones are separated by the international date line, in which this trend is broken, and you actually move forward/back 23 hours.

In order to travel around the world, you would have to, well, travel around the world. You would need to start at one longitudinal line, and keep going forward until you've arrived back at that line. Normally, this is difficult, however, where those lines meet (at the poles), it is possible in a short amount of time.

Nowhere does he say he is going to visit every country in the world, nowhere does it say he has to cross borders. The entire south pole is located in Antarctica, which (currently) has no established political boundaries. It's cold and **** , no country has successfully colonized it on a large enough scale yet. So, by starting in Antarctica, he can start at latitude 0 degrees, walk across every other imaginary latitudinal line, and arrive at 0 degrees again, successfully completing his trip around the world. He hasn't seen any other countries, and it wasn't an exciting trip, but that's not the ******* point.

well if he took gps with him, which I'm guessing he would have because he would have to be retarded to take a trip like that and not have gps, the gps would tell him where the exact location of the magnetic south pole was at that time.
