And here you just thought volcanos could do it.

Ta-da! A brand new island has formed. This is a first during the entire span of human history. Yep the Artic Sea Ice has officially detached from both sides and the northeast and northwest passages are fully opened. Thank god this has absolutely nothing to do with man made driven climate change according to Republican VP Nominee Gov. Sarah Palin. Wow - that's a load off, I was really worried that we were fucking stuff up.


  1. Probably those damn polar bears farting and crapping on the ice. Down with Polar Bears. Palin is going to save the world by shooting all of them.

  2. First time an island has formed?
    Tagged as inaccurate.

    Plus, this happens all the time on the St Lawerance River, where the water rises or falls and connects or disconnects two pieces of land.

  3. It's the first time this has ever happened to the frozen arctic ice. Not the first time some ice has melted and made islands.

  4. So why isn't this all over the news? Hasn't Al Gore flown a camera crew up there to document it? I can't imagine the media not having a hay day over this and calling for the heads of all of us SUV drivers.

    Bleh, I just remembered I left my Expedition running when we got home from the cookout a few hours ago. Whoopsies.

  5. I think the 24 hour news channels are busy covering Gustav and the election.

    Unless you think NASA made this all up. *shrugs*

  6. I think Santa needs to ease up on the carbon emissions. We need to regulate reindeer farts.

  7. Ahh. It was your sentance structure that was throwing me off.
    Perhaps if you had stated it as:
    "For the first time in human history, the North Pole can now be circumnavigated."
