*** They did indeed drop you on your noggin ... but I digress:
The Antarctic has been "calving" ice sheets since time
immemorial. When glaciers, a common phenomena in
the Antarctic, spill out into the sea, they eventually break
off from the progenitor ice mass, sort of like bending a
beer can tab to and fro, until it breaks off. It is nature's
way of getting rid of the grown up children. The floes,
or ice bergs, as they are otherwise known, then go on
hunting trip for such unsinkable behemoths as the Titanic.
