Rumors thrive on Antarctica.
I already mentioned being part of the rumor mill for the Christchurch to McMurdo flight (where I overheard someone saying we probably wouldn't be going, and 45 minutes later we were on our way.)
Another rumor which I heard multiple times at McMurdo was that someone at the South Pole had stolen 150 lb. of prime ribs that were sitting out defrosting for the Christmas dinner. I was a *little* skeptical ... where does one hide 150 lb of meat?
This morning I asked a couple of people who were here over Christmas, and they laughed and said that they not only had enough meat, but they had the leftovers in meals for the next two days!
