What Vehicle Would You Drive Through Six Months Of Darkness?Michael Ballaban12/21/13 1:00pmFiled to: QOTWQOTDQuestion of the Weekend1464EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkToday is the winter solstice. Well, technically, the point at which the Northern Hemisphere was most turned away from the winter sun was at 12:11 PM EST, but who's counting. And that means today is dark. Some places, though, go through real darkness, for months at a time. And that might require a special vehicle.Today when we saw a plane landing in northern Norway it was clearly very dark, though it might as well have been the middle of the day. And at the North and South Poles, you might as well have a six-month long day, and an equally intransigent night. That's why if I had to endure nothing but six months of darkness, I'd take a dekotora truck. With all those lights, I'd be a shining beacon of hope, warding off the terrors of the night and all that SAD.
