My boss's boss's boss (does that make sense?) today got so frustrated and tired of people asking him when South Pole was going to close for the winter, he consulted the Magic 8 Ball that we keep in our office. Through a series of questions, he came up with the date of February 20th. Is that the date the Pole is really going to close? Who knows...it can't be any worse guess than anyone else has. Maybe this 8 Ball knows something we don't.
