Chat Up Lines Of Polar Explorers

Nice to have caught some of Race to the Pole on UKTV Herstory. Since then nutrition has moved on, and a modern analysis of the diet of Scott of the Antarctic's expidition's diet shows it to be low in B vitamins. They should have taken a few crates of Special Brew.. They could have opened a bar at the south pole.

Interesting difference of strategy. The team re enacting Amundsen's expidition had a problem with a bitch coming onto heat and as a result the male huskies took armourous interest in her and no interest in pulling the sleigh.. They tried putting her at the front of the team in the hope that the dogs would then chase her and hey presto! but it didn't work. Amundsen would have just shot her and been happy for the fresh meat. Perhaps Scott would have seen it as unBritish. I get the impression Amundsen was a bit of a loner. Well if his chat up line was "Hi! I shoot my bitches!" perhaps I can see why. There again some wimin at least would go for it. Remember the trial of Ted Bundy, he had quite a following amongst the ladies.
