We’ve all learned about Eskimos in school and from documentaries. But have you ever met one? Do you even know someone who has? I’ve lived in many places and met people from all over the map; you’d think I’d have run into one at some point, but no. And Eskimos certainly wouldn’t lack for reasons to move; their houses are supposedly made of fucking ice, for one. For that matter, why would anyone colonize the North Pole in the first place? At what point in human evolution would a migrating people be insane enough to say, “well, this barren, frigid, inhospitable land looks like a good place to settle?”
I’ve often wondered the same thing about Pittsburgh.
