Adventurers Wanted

If they had want ads in the time of Jason and the Argo would it look something like this? Want Ad As you can see it’s not Jason who lives at 4 Burlington St. but an adventurer by the name of Ernest Shackleton ( the explorer who led 3 expeditions to the Antarctic.  He lived during what is called the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration and if you read up on it the dangers you would be hard pressed not to consider their dangers equal to any faced by the ancient mariners).   Have we changed that much?  No.  We have not.  What motivates us?  Despite the promise of hazards, small wages, bitter cold, constant danger, SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL…there were MANY that applied. Why? “…honor and recognition in case of success.” KLEOS. RENOWN. GLORY. 202,586. That is the number of people that volunteered for a one-way mission to Mars. Think about it. What adventure are you willing to RISK ALL! The Argonauts live.
