Yeah, but none of these clowns here will acknowledge that

I need to replace my incinerator barrel.

Minah: Your reference to polar bears was presumably triggered by the two comments (2008-10-25 and 2008-10-27) at the bottom of the page. They are NOT written by me, but a troll using my name. If you click on the names, neither record is mine, the real poppy's. We had a serious Troll War on pixdaus some time back, and several posters and commentators were targeted by nasty comments written under our names plus disgusting pictures posted. - And what is the "fuss about votes" to do with this comment page?

The polar bears would be safer if someone did something about this mess. Nobody can do anything if they don't know about it. We do nobody a favour by closing our eyes to what is wrong or ugly. I adore polar bears, so please don't get mad at me. I just feel that too much fuss is made about votes. Everyone has favourites. If you don't like something, move on. Why vote something down or make nasty comments? What a person says, says more about that person than what it is said about. Please forgive the poor grammar. I did not want to use the word 'you'.

Thank you very much for this information!

Perhaps you have difficulty recognizing the difference between VIEW and FACT. There are no VIEWS, biased or otherwise, in the quote from the photographer. The natural scenery and the drums have been 'together' for a long time, and together they should be shown. Life is not all beautiful, neither is the world, and to pretend otherwise is foolish.

Thanks for letting us know where it is and some of the facts. A biased view on the question is always better than no view at all. In this particular case, i believe not viewing those drums in this scenery would be better...

Seems a silly thing to say, Ted08. You say that as if it is a good reason for them leaving the drums. It is something we teach every child, to clean up after yourself. It also seems ridiculous that adults, and governments cannot find it prudent to clean up after themselves when we expect our children to.

I think that a German victory would also have had an adverse effect on their hunting.

Another picture by David Astley, taken at the same place, was posted by someone a few weeks ago. It did not come with any explanations and we were wondering what the drums were all about. In the photographer’s own words: “Our seal hunter told us that this was the site of an old US Air Force base that was established during World War 2 after Germany had occupied Denmark, and the Americans thought that Germany might attack the US from the north through Greenland – so the base was set up to provide a line of defence. After the war the Americans abandoned the base and left thousands of drums of aviation fuel – some empty and some still full. In the years after the war, as the drums rusted, the fuel leaked out into the Ikateq channel and the surrounding fjords. Our hunter told us that for many years the waters were polluted and had an adverse effect on their hunting.”
