Yes, but at the same time, some types of living organisms replace others during the geomagnetic reversal.
I read somewhere that during this phenomenon the background of cosmic radiation increases significantly. And for some species, this is the end.

The Brazilian Anomaly is the left part of the dumbbell. And right part is Cape Town Anomaly.
All together is South Atlantic Anomaly.

Ha-ha ;) Why should I compete with you?
I know my worth and have proven everything to myself long ago.
And engaging in your education is not my bread :)

The question becomes, why does this forum tolerate your constant trolling?

There are many *very* serious people here.

You are, empirically, not one of them.

I don't mind. But everything is relative.
Any categoricality is a sign of personal immaturity.
Or itโ€™s a consequence of not getting enough sleep :) You have to sleep more. Trust me pls.

It is not trolling. It's a kind of healing magic.

What is true (according to the United States Antarctic Program),
Quote:
You must pass rigorous medical and dental examinations before going to the Antarctic. Antarctica is an extreme, remote environment, and medical facilities are limited. USAP stations at McMurdo, South Pole, and Palmer are equipped and staffed to provide the routine ambulatory care that would be expected in a U.S. clinic. They also have the capability to stabilize and manage a range of emergency medical and dental conditions before patients are transยญported off the continent for further care. However, medical evacuations are costly, take a lot of time and effort, and place others at risk. Weather may make travel impossible for extended periods of time, and evacuations from remote camps and ships present additional difficulties. Therefore, the physical qualification (PQ) process administered by ASC seeks to screen out people with conditions that cannot effectively be managed on the Ice or aboard ship.

In all my years of working with South Pole Station scientific equipment provision and several coworkers and clients making the trip, some repeatedly, and the possibility of going myself, there was no mention of preventative tooth extractions or appendectomies required. (~1989-2016 seasons) What can be decisive is signs of altitude sickness. One coworker had to depart the pole earlier than initially scheduled on his second trip, which made it his final trip. The program will neither waste resources on a traveler with such demonstrated issues nor put a person's health at such risk again. Antarctic appendectomies are rare, with only two listed at http://www.southpolestation.com/triv.../appendix.html
