i learned of Shackleton's trip, from Dan Carlin, where he mentioned it in blueprint for armageddon. what a crazy time in the world. Would love to read up more on Shackleton at some point.

what little i know, this TIL makes perfect sense considering the time period. haha

Taking a version of speedball.
