The ancient Greek word for "bear" was άρκτος.

The Arctic is named after the animal; it's the place where bears are.

Naturally, when you find a place at the opposite side of the globe from the Arctic and where there are no bears, it's the anti-Arctic - in other words, Antarctica.

So the Arctic is Bears Place, and Antarctica is Not Bears Place.


@noelle supersymmetrical theory predicts the existence of the antibear

@vegetablegremlin @noelle i believe the antibear is typically referred to as Spheniscidae, or penguins
