It's over. The human spirit is broken.

So what exactly would they do today? I don't get it. The world had to run out of frontiers and adventures at some point. It was inevitable.
>>

We haven't run out of frontiers. Everyday, we anons push and explore new lands of terrible shitposting, bizzare fetishes, and shitty memes.

It's as they say. Born too late to explore the earth, born too early to explore the stars, born just in time to browse dank memes
>>
>>580438
There's still the deep ocean left, go explore that.
>>
>>580441
>What do you mean there's nothing left to explore? There's still half a world of desert, all of which is virtually the same and of no interest to all but a very select few autistic marine-biologists.
When will this meme end?
>>
>>580436
The next place to claim will be Mars. Then Olympus Mons I guess but it's so high that ironically it won't be a challenge. And unless there's something deeper than Mariana Trench that's it for Earth.
>>
>>580451
So people aren't actually bothered about exploration for exploration and discovery's sake; they only care about there not being exploration that *they* find personally interesting.

Pathetic.
>>
>>580438
Seriously though. People are going to look back at this as the wild west pioneer days of the internet.

The last generation that experienced the internet as a new thing, who experienced it before corporate involvement.
>>
>>580456
It's like telling someone to explore space. Not the celestial bodies, just the endless black void for the sole reason that we've never been there. Exploration for explorations sake!
>>
>>580456
Well first voyages was basically a race financed by great empires to see who could claim what. Terra Australis was supposed to be this new America back when people didn't even know whether it existed or not.

Of course even in the 20th century governments were using exploration as a tool. Antarctica was claimed by several countries in the past. Some of them claim it to this day. Between 1920s and 1950s everybody turned to Himalayas but it was mostly for propaganda. The British wanted to claim the third pole for the glory of the dying empire. And don't let me started on space exploration.

And there was the whole "science vs. discovery" debate. The scientific side of famous expeditions is often ignored and everybody focuses on the big prize. The highest point or the pole or whatever.

Don't fucking count on it pepe, I'm waiting for those stem fags to grant me immortality.

You seem very passionate about marine biology. Would you happen to be one yourself? If not, why do you keep posting?
>>
>>580552
>You seem very passionate about marine biology.
I'm not passionate about marine biology, I'm just just not an anti-intellectual mouthbreather.

Not sure how "ice sheets and some rocks" is more interesting
>>
>>580651
Nice turnaround, masterful work.
>>
What point is everyone trying to prove with this deep-sea thing? Are you trying to delude yourself into thinking that the frontier is still alive?
>>
>>580662
I guess it's the idea that the act of perseverance through hardship, heroic failure or success against the odds, the noble struggle, is somehow a more worthy act per se than scientific exploration.
>>
There's plenty of uncharted caves out there, and a bunch of mountains that haven't been particularly well-explored.
>>
>>580668
pathetic faggot pussy bitch.

is that better? seems like we're talking the same language now.

You realize that he fucked some of his dogs whilst exploring right and even wound up having to eat a few of them?
>>
>>580949
Don't know about fucking but of course he ate them. That's how it went in these parts. Amundsen set out with this very intention. Scott liked dogs too much todo this but he shot and ate horses which btw had better lives there than in Siberian mines. Now the real thing is one historian claims he ate his partner. It's bullshit tho not the first time polar historian makes shit up for fame.

I think in the future we will see 4chan and other imageboards as kind of the counterculture of the early 21st century
