…because the Russians finally drilled through to that damnable lake lurking under the Antarctic ice. Oh, goody, here’s another detail: the site’s being bathed in the eldritch geomagnetic energies of the magnetic South Pole!
Well, maybe it’ll be a while before whatever was under the ice gets to here.
PS: Yeah, obviously they got back in touch with the Russian site. Which is no doubt explaining in very simple Russian that da, everything is fine, no problems, everything is fine, no problems, everything is fine, but please send more dogs…
