Why would you post a new thread about a piece of wood atop an iceberg in the antarctic if you were of the belief that there was nothing strange about it? That it was just some piece of wood from a "bridge"?

You're holding out on us. I'm sure you think there's more to it. It's hardly fair or honest to ask the opinions of others if you aren't prepared to offer your own in return.

My personal opinion on this piece of wood is that it is just that. A piece of wood. Probably tossed off of a passing ship or plane. Certainly nothing mystical, supernatural or even other worldy. Just an ordinarly piece of wood.

Geeze, that didn't help at all now did it?

I liked it better from a far (and on top of the bridge
Ah, inside joke if you didn't read all the posts.)

Thanks for blowing it up though. In a photo-shop sorta way.

Sorry RMFX1,

I didn't realize I was FORCED to have an opinion.


Thesis:

Due to the imperceptible yet gradual melting of the Himalayas, it is of my belief, this is reminiscent of the upper quadrant of the downslope perimeter of the Elephant compartment from the Ark.

End Thesis.


Better?

That's too funny.

With apologies to M. Python:
ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin
or the plumber may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not
strangers to our land.
GUARD #1: Are you suggesting blocks of wood migrate?
ARTHUR: Not at all, they could be carried.
GUARD #1: What -- a swallow carrying a block of wood?
ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk!
GUARD #1: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple
question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 pound
block of wood.
ARTHUR: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master
that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.
GUARD #1: Listen, in order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow
needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?
ARTHUR: Please!
GUARD #1: Am I right?
ARTHUR: I'm not interested!
GUARD #2: It could be carried by an African swallow!
GUARD #1: Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a European
swallow, that's my point.
GUARD #2: Oh, yeah, I agree with that...
ARTHUR: Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court
at Camelot?!
GUARD #1: But then of course African swallows are not migratory.
GUARD #2: Oh, yeah...
GUARD #1: So they couldn't bring a block of wood back anyway...
[clop clop]
GUARD #2: Wait a minute -- supposing two swallows carried it together?
GUARD #1: No, they'd have to have it on a line.
GUARD #2: Well, simple! They'd just use a standard creeper!
GUARD #1: What, held under the dorsal guiding feathers?
GUARD #2: Well, why not?

No one is forcing you to have an opinion. You already gave it when you said that you believed that it was a part of what would actually be a rather mysterious, supernatural and possibly other worldly walkway of a bridge down there in the antarctic.

I thought you were holding back, and I still think so.

I wondered where my suitcase went when it never arrived at Burbank Airport.
This answers a lot of questions.

I do hope RMFX1 doesn't take that verbatim because it COULD be from the Giraffe compartment though. We're awaiting dung-DNA analysis as we speak!

Here is a picture of Amundsen's South Pole Expedition in 1911:



I can imagine you need the box to level your measuring instruments, it needs to be heavy, so you have no shaking.
You measure, then you want to go as quickly back to your ship, since you start to freeze. You don't feel like packing a heavy box, so you leave it there.

It gets snowed over, so no one sees it. 100 Years later it gets warmer, and guess what reappears; your lunchbox.

What we appear to have here is an actual piece of Noah's Ark: EXTRA! EXTRA! NOAH'S ARK FOUND!

I see Altantis "Re-Appearing" from the currently, but not then, frozen Antarctic wilderness. Built and ready to occupy.

Sorry to be morbid, but it really looks like a coffin. Maybe melted from the edge of the ice pack?

By the way, also the photographer) had a box there (same expedition 1911 by Scott), probably for his Photo-Equipment. A Picture of him: clairesawers.com...’-view-from-the-ends-of-the-earth/

Where could it have come from, the iceberg and item of interest, and how does their migration effect the current placement.




Well we may never know seeing it IS in the no compass region!

It would be been nice if they could of managed to retrieve the wood to date it and determine what part of the world it came from.

Looking at the good quality of the wood, angular lines, no noticeable breaks, I would assume it didn't snap or break off of something. I will admit it looks mildly weathered, however I would assume wood would weather fast in the arctic. I find it weird that it is so evenly exposed and not covered with anything, making me feel like it was a recent addition to the iceberg.

It would be interesting though if this wood was traced back a tree of german origin.

I love that a thread about a block of wood on a piece of ice has now reached 4 pages.


Have to appreciate when something FUN actually happens on ATS!

maybe it's a darma outpost. We never really did figure out where the polar bears came from
