Yes. It is a desert stuck in eternal deep freeze. Quite dangerous.

Maybe not so eternal. Scientists have said some of the ice is melting. Not too far fetched that an ancient bacteria or invasive species may lurk, though it's remote. The melting can have repercussions on the environment at large.

Wait, so the BBC is hiding the "truth" from the public?

All I know is I wish I could move there.
The one place on the planet where I wouldn't have to worry about development or over population in my lifetime.

You'd want to pack your woolies. Average temps at the McMurdo Station during the cold season is about -17.3F and can drop down to lows of -21.1F. If you opt for the Vosok Station, temps can drop down to an average low of -96.4F. Even the high temps are usually sub-zero there. Still, no need to worry about over population on the continent any time soon, apart from the penguins. Other than that, watch out for The Thing.

They can arrange that for me or you, too.

Yes. The Thing is scary. It could copy people or even animals perfectly.

That's right. There's a risk it could get loose and infect the entire world. What happened in Antarctica is all documented, but kept under wraps to avoid global panic!
Here's more of the leaked classified dialogue.

Palmer: "Childs, happens all the time, man. They're falling out of the skies like flies. Government knows all about it, right, Mac?"

Palmer: "Childs, Childs... Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own South America. I mean, they taught the Incas everything they know." [takes a hit off a joint]

Childs: "So how's this mf wake up after thousands of years in the ice?"

Bennings: "And how can it look like a dog?"

MacReady: "I don't know how. 'Cause it's different than us, see? 'Cause it's from outer space. What do you want from me? Ask him!" [motions to Blair]
