This is real life. Sometimes you just want off of this world and then the world turns around and offers you the best kind of glorious nonsense: Eric from True Blood, Prince fucking Harry (who ended up being the handsome one, WHO KNEW?!), and some other guy (sorry, guy!) are racing to the South Pole. Because why wouldn't they? This is one of those things that you can't make up, when real life is more bizarre than fiction is allowed to be.
I feel like Ford Prefect just dropped me off on the wrong Earth, but it's OK. I'll stay. (This can also be a Doctor Who joke but I just don't think that the Hitchhiker's Guide gets nearly enough play.)
