Default Maybe I should go to Antarctica...

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - One of the last shipments to a U.S. research base in Antarctica before the onset of winter darkness was a year's supply of condoms, a New Zealand newspaper reported Monday.

Bill Henriksen, the manager of the McMurdo base station, said nearly 16,500 condoms were delivered last month and would be made available, free of charge, to staff throughout the year to avoid the potential embarrassment of having to buy them.

The base only has a skeleton staff through the long winter.

"Since everybody knows everyone, it becomes a little bit uncomfortable," Henriksen told the Southland Times newspaper.

About 125 scientists and staff are stationed at McMurdo base, the largest community in Antarctica, during the winter months when there is constant darkness.

The first sunrise will occur on August 20 and McMurdo's population will start to increase again in September when supply flights resume, peaking at more than 1,000 during the summer period.
So assuming that every condom use involved 2 people, and assuming it's a 4 month supply, I figured that everyone must be "doing it" on average better than twice a day!

How do I get in on this action...

But then I got to thinking... What do you suppose is the "guy to girl" ratio at the antarctic base startion during the winter...

what happens in antartica stays in antartica. either that or the science chicks are trampy and into scientific study of the geeky gang bang.
