cyclefreaksix: This is why vampires love Alaska.
itspronouncedkrejci: We’ve all seen the movie. We know what’s about to happen to those poor townspeople
outrider567: 14 degrees below zero right now in Fairbanks–think 100,000 people live in that general area
jibberwockie: I had a look at this web cam, nothing much going on but still interesting. The web page has one of those world maps with the location of people around the world who are currently accessing it. I find it fascinating to see the tiny blinky little light that is me, blinking away at the southern end of New Zealand.
raytrace75: So does it get pitch dark, or is it like twilight?
Ketameandreams: Is there any kind of celebration or festival or holiday of some kind revolving around these days? Or maybe in some of the cultures native to the region? Pretty profound to not have sun for a couple months
thxxx1337: *It’s all cold and dark outside, living in a vampire’s paradise* 🎶 *fresh humans packed on ice, living in a vampire’s paradise*
Meetchel: The median household income in Barrow is $83k – shocked me when I first heard it.
cudderisback_: I would love to travel there, or any other place that experiences prolonged darkness, once in my lifetime.
FranticDisembowel: Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something calming about hiding from the world for a couple months. Like when you go under the blanket and take a long nap.
onewaymutha: Until then, the liquor will be our sun.
JasonsBoredAgain: Looks a lot cleaner since they cleaned up after that last 30 day bloodbath.
ejs2000: Just to be pedantic, Barrow’s official name is once again Utqiaġvik, which is Inupiaq for “a place for gathering wild roots.”
Indominablesnowplow: That looks fantastic!
Fr31l0ck: Looks like no one seems to care.
Jo0sH_00: PRAISE THE SUN o/
GulfTango15: This is almost the only reason I love south Florida!…
Gotta_havva_wawa: God i would give ANYTHING to live there. Theres 2 things in this world i love more then anything. And its darkness and snow!
kendricklebard: When I worked in Alaska in the summer we would finish around midnight and it would still be super light. It would be “twilight” dusky around 3am but it never got completely dark. It’s wild you feel like you can work all day
AndyWarwheels: Why would anyone live there?
IAmTheSilentPlanet: No thanks. I rather like the sun and am not willing to part with it.
DecentUserName0000: How does this work? Explain it like I’m five lol
Psychotic_Precision: Why do people live there?
PMmeSWIFFERsweepers: I don’t know why anyone would willingly live in Alaska. It’s like voluntarily giving yourself a drug addiction, alcoholism and weekly doses of domestic violence.
RLutin: Goodbye Sun !
GTXMittens: Is there an r/miserableaf subreddit?
Serifan: That’s cool,they should set a movie In a place like this where vampires come and feast on the inhabitants.
MakuyiMom: After that movie, I’m sacred of vampires and no sun. Holy shit
korievans: How do they not get depressed?? Doesn’t something physically happen to the mind and body if you don’t get sunlight for so long?
graybarrow: Aye my last name is barrow
tastydolphinbabes69: I want *so so* badly to visit Alaska with my boyfriend. Cold weather is my jam.
bonafart: Do they have a ceremony or something?I’d so be making that a day to sing lullabies only.
caydos2: Why the hell doesn’t the sun come up during this time of the year?
-PurSang-: r/misleadingthumbnails Current state ot the titanic
Voklwinter: I have doctors that rotate and work one week a month in barrow. They love it and the people. Even agree with the whale hunting.
Uncaring: hey my hometown. did you get your vampire killing license? Also this is on top the wells fargo bank and offices. I’m surprised someone did something like this.
kanjeclub: Hello from sunny new Zealand where the summer is really starting to kick in. Over 15 hrs of sunshine today and a nice high of 25 Celsius, not a cloud in the sky!
twistedbubble: Is the night sky spectacular? Like amazing tons of stars?
japroct: Ok, now I have to download 30 Days of Night again….. It fits.
DredyDred: They have one hell of a basketball team up there.
dcal1981: Just no
MollyDiesAtTheEnd: January 22nd will be my birthday, what a nice birthday present for all of you in Barrow! I’ll probably be so hungover it’s going to feel like the first time I saw the sun in months too, an early cheers to you Alaskans!
