People of Kangiqsujuaq go to great lengths to get food, venturing under the sea ice during the extreme low tides.

I would actually die under these conditions...why?

I am medically claustrophobic. I even had a little packet where I would keep certain paperwork that stated i was NOT allowed on Naval submarines while I was in the Navy. While on the Carrier CVN-69 (Ike), my rack was located to the closest door to the outside I could find.

No other channel in the world makes documentaries of the scope and quality that the BBC do. Especially Natural History ones.
It`s just a pity the rest of our license fee appears to go towards `Two Pints of Lager` also known as the worlds worst television programme

@Entre

I`m sure it`s been explained before, but I`ll tell you again(?). The moderators go through piles of submissions, and a lot of it is probably garbage. They can`t go through all of it, so it`s too bad if they don`t see your obviously entertaining and awesome post.

"the ocean reclaims its secret garden."

Ishii, hear ya loud and clear. Labrador is a wonderful place. Here`s a pic of me, having my first experience of these "skidoos" that you speak of:



Anyways, so as not to spam up the thread with a chat thing, see you on the next one. To the rest of the Bored, forgive us, just chatting it up with another dude with whom I have a local connection, apparently! As you were.

Nah Ishii, her folks aren`t native, they`re from Conception Harbour and Dildo, Newfoundland. Wonderful place names they have around there...

They went up to Lab west to work the mines some 40-odd years ago. But I consider myself privilaged to say I spent two winter in Labrador - f*cking awesome spot! Though a bit chilly...

Inuit..not indians..

We don`t have reserves either. We were given the choice of reserves and loads of money, or just having our own sovereign government, and we chose the latter...unlike those greedy injuns.

Silly Canadians, letting their indians run about. Be like America and lock them on reservations to run casinos for the rest of their lives.

This is only a hundred km or so from where I live. I`d bet anything they were cousins of mine too. haha. And yes, the tides are used for food, but more often used for the big bellycutters that pop up fro the tide being out. good fun for raping skidoos, yupyup :D I had a good lol when they used the kamutik for a ladder, my bud was doin that just today to get up on his shed, but it was too wet and slipped. hahahahaa.

aqasili :)
