The ancient Greek word for "bear" was άρκτος.
The Arctic is named after the animal; it's the place where bears are.
Naturally, when you find a place at the opposite side of the globe from the Arctic and where there are no bears, it's the anti-Arctic - in other words, Antarctica.
So the Arctic is Bears Place, and Antarctica is Not Bears Place.
@noelle i feel like there should be more ants in antarctica though
or maybe anteaters
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
