Got news from one of the stations? Send it to Big Dead Place. Do you witness interesting Antarctic activities that somehow just don't seem sensational enough for Newsweek or People magazine? Send them to Big Dead Place. Have you ever wondered why a hundred media events overshadow millions of daily events? Because you didn't yet write to Big Dead Place. You know things. We promise anonymity.
