|1.||Queen Elizabeth Islands|
A lonely, desolate, edge of the world, bum-fuck middle of nowhere group of islands north of Canada where a couple underpaid scientists conduct meaningless environmental research.
Ignorant Friend: Dude, north of Canada is the North Pole and Santa and all that shit right?
You: No, there's a bunch of mountainous, incredibly cold islands just above it. They're called the Queen Elizabeth Islands, and my dad says it's easier to live in Detroit than it is there.
Recently-Enlightened Friend: Damn. How does he know?
You: He went to college for "Environmental Problems", only got an associate's degree, and he was exiled there.
