Actually they could tunnel in. A tunnelled passage to the interior of an igloo was common to reduce wind or the loss of heat. Yeah, due to the insulative properties of even snow and ice, you could get warm inside an igloo. They were used by the indigenous people (the Inuit) of northern Canada and Alaska as shelter when hunting in winter.
Polar bears of course don’t make igloos but they do dig out little den’s in the snow to keep warm or birth their cubs. Seals do it too but dig their dens into the snow up from the water. The polar bears know this and hunt for these little dens to pop their nose in for a plump little snack. Yeah, sorry, yet again the young in the wild are often food.
And of course there were no igloos in Antarctica as there were no indigenous people of Antarctica. But that would have been cool, those people would have been hardcore.
Stuff Around Here
Here’s a list of stuff I’ve been busy with around here (reprint! ).
- I redid the downloads page, I added some ad banners so if you would like to help spread the word about the comic I would love you for that. I need to get some more wallpapers made too.
- I added an e-mail page so now you can send your thoughts directly to me if you want.
- I’ve started creating On the Rocks content that you can view on your iPod.
- The store is open if you would like to buy a shirt and support the comic, you can order from USA or Europe depending which is closer. I’ll be adding more designs to choose from soon.
That’s all for now. See you tomorrow!
