No one can truly say that . . .

A Clean Place Despite  Being Located
at the
Bottom of the World

. . . no ant can be found in Antarctica. You doubt? Look carefully:
Ant + Arctica = Antarctica
You believe me now? I thought so.

I once had a Korean student who had given herself the strange Western-ish name "Artica." Years have passed since then; she's no doubt an "Aunt Artica" to someone now.

I "c," said the blind man . . . or are we talking art?

I asked her about that: why "Ar-tica" and not "Arc-tica"? I no longer recall her answer. I suspect that, as with many Koreans who give themselves Konglishy names, there was no deep reason behind her denomination aside from "It sounded cool, so I went with it."

Perhaps she thought of it as "Art-ica"?
