Why? I heard that some of those guys did a ton of MS down there by loading up their Buxx accounts and cashing out at the WF ATM. It's great when there are no eyes on your account for 10 months straight  :P

Wow!

Couple that with a rare seminar, and this trip might not only pay for itself, but actually yield some handsome dividedends.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

But then the value of going for those who know will have gone down exponentially

Some people care about ashkenas minyanim, other people care about printing tanyas in random places. Can't we all get along?

I don't think most people would decide to go or not to go somewhere based on the Nussach of the minyan alone. I've never heard of a Posek insisting on that. I'd be happy to see a source that says differently.

Not to mention that if one is concerned about potential Halachic issue, the lack of a real Tzeis for Motzei Shabbos is probably a more significant Halachic concern than whether the Shat"z will say Hodu before or after Baruch SheAmar.

Why don’t we just go to the North Pole where we can skip shabbos and fasting almost completely

Can anyone help me book a mileage trip? I am trying to identify business class awards. Particularly anyone know how to get Aerolineas Argentinas miles? They don't seem to share the business class availability with partners? I see other options with other airlines but I would love to get a single long hawl from JFK to EZE.

United and American have direct NYC-EZE flights as well.

Is it safe?
Considering
“It is believed to be the first time a man has been charged with attempted murder in Antarctica”
I’d say it’s safe. But just to be safe don’t tell SF or Dan the endings of books.

OK, @Dan. Let's get this out of the way now:

Snape was actually good.
Beth dies.
Hobbes isn't real.
Jim was actually freed by the Widow Douglas.
Dorothy was dreaming.
It was the mice all along.
Yaakov gets the brachos.
