Instead of writing about idiot anti-vaxxers and the politicians who pander to them (as part of a longer thought about how we've spent the last three decades legitimizing stupidity instead of respecting intelligence), I'm going to take a deep breath and post a magnificent sun dogs picture from DQ VB.NET And Extreme Cold Weather Advisor Garret Rempel:

You have three tasks to perform: find the location of the colony; find, buy, and deliver goods needed for its construction; and locate the cryogenically-frozen colonists needed to populate the colony.
