6. a: Lenin The southern pole of inaccessibility is the point on the Antarctic continent most distant from the Southern Ocean. A variety of different coordinate locations have been given for this pole. The discrepancies are due to the question of whether the "coast" is measured to the grounding line or to the edges of ice shelves, the difficulty of determining the location of the "solid" coastline, the movement of ice sheets and improvements in the accuracy of survey data over the years, as well as possible typographical errors. The southern pole of inaccessibility is far more remote and hard to reach than the Geographic South Pole. In 1958, the 3rd Soviet Antarctic Expedition for International Geophysical Year research work established the temporary Pole of Inaccessibility Station at 82?06'S, 54?58'E. A 2nd Russian team returned there in 1967. Today a building still remains at this location, marked by a bust of Vladimir Lenin that faces towards Moscow, and is protected as a historical site. Inside the building there is a golden visitors book for those who make it to the site to sign. However, as of 2007, only the bust on top of the building is visible ? the rest is buried under the snow.

10. In Flanders Fields (John McCrae) In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
