I finished a fantastic book this morning. One of the central characters, Laura Byrd, who happens to be the last remaining person on earth, is surviving on Antarctica.

It struck me kind of funny that I could say, I lived IN Maine, I live IN Nashville, but it sounds completely grammatically incorrect to say I live IN Antarctica. It seems you can live ON a vast ice shelf with no infrastructure, but not in it. Does a place require human culture to live in it?
