That does sound like an interesting source!

I have a friend who brings me dvd's of all kinds of documentaries (literally 100's of them). That's where I stumbled across the remarkable Mr. Midgley (though I didn't remember his name, I did remember his actual chemical accomplishments so he was easy to find.

You're up...

No, it's a human artefact actually.

I'll go with Machu Picchu because I've heard that it is extremely difficult to get at by any method other than a helicopter.

The number of visitors at Machu Picchu had to be limited because the site was overrun. No, we're talking extreme inhospitality, as in zero visitors other than the people who put the artefact there and one other set of people -and never tourists- perhaps every ten years or so. If that much. There's even a technical term for 'least accessible spot' but if I give that away, it's too easy.

Extra hint:
The southern pole of inaccessibility is the point on the Antarctic continent most distant from the Southern Ocean.

I suppose nobody's interested and I've been dying to give the answer so here goes:
At the most remote, least accessible place on Antarctica, the "South Pole of Inaccessibility" there is....a bust of Lenin

I looked around but couldn't find this. Seems rather surreal.

Here's a challenge:

What is the significance of the expression "from Lake Geneva to Finland Station".

I heard this line in a song many years ago, and always wondered what it was about. Now I know.
