It's late in the season and getting all the winterover Polies together for a photo is like trying to put 47 kindergardeners jacked on sugar in the same room that has a temperature of -80 F. Then you have to tell them to not breathe for 5 seconds... every 10 seconds... and watch the light on the camera. No laughing, whining, crying or complaining. Then you have to make sure that the flags aren't in the way. Then you have to make sure the camera isn't frozen. When it's all said and done the teacher realizes that 5 of the students of the missing and half are getting frostbite. Welcome to the South Pole.
