I try to keep my opinons to myself self on Tumblr because of the bottomless well of butthurt that is out there… but I have been thinking this for a long time:
Guys, Ghouls, Germs, or whatever you are out there:
It’s pretty mean to Jinkx to call her an underdog. She has carried herself in every challenge, she kept herself afloat in the dramatic shitstorms, and she was ALWAYS a fierce queen. Of course she grew and matured with the challenges - all the queens do. It’s a whole different ball game to be on RPDR!
An underdog doesn’t go as far as she did without lip synching constantly. Just saiyan.
I hope you win, Jinkx - and I hope that the people out there who treat you like an underdog eventually realize that you were always one of the strongest competitors. <3
The Abandoned Ghost Continent of Antarctica
Antarctic spirits have an abundance of residences to choose from thanks to the huge number of ghost towns, deserted islands and other such haunts. For obvious reasons, Antarctica is a very popular place to abandon.
The most famous and disturbingly well-preserved of these places is the camp built by Robert Scott (pictured above) and his party on Ross Island in 1911. The seaweed-insulated wooden cabin and its outbuildings were supposed to be the team’s shelter when they returned from their attempt to be the first people to visit the South Pole. Scott and four others set out from the base to reach the pole. They reached it in January 1912 only to find that the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had gotten there weeks before them. All five men died trying to get back to the base camp. The final three – Scott, Wilson and Bowers – were just 11 miles from it when they died.
South Georgia is another Antarctic island that people rushed to abandon. At least seven whaling communities existed there during the first half of the 20th century. When all were up and running, the island was estimated to have 2,000 people living on it. Most of the towns are in the process of returning to a state of wilderness.
It is worth noting that these frozen islands have been the subject of heated arguments over who actually owns them – mostly by the UK and Argentina. South Georgia and the South Shetland islands are still possessed by the UK. The dispute over ownership of South Georgia was a contributing factor in The Falklands War described by Argentine writer Jorge Louis Borges as “two bald men fighting over a comb.”
