i had a pal who moved up to fairbanks to work on building the pipeline back in the 70's. when they got snowed in, they would get pretty much confined to work and/or their cabins (accessed through snow tunnels). he told stories of sitting around (no tv or anything) picking crabs off their crotches and putting them into bottle caps and and then pouring 151 rum on them. they'd set them on fire and watch them wriggle. that's what they did for entertainment. sounds dull up there during the winter.
great poster, though.
