That's 'cause you were probably drunk and having a good time.
Antarctica safe? I guess if you consider having to eat 6000 calories per day just to stay warm enough to survive, a bright, warm summer day is -20, winds can get up to 300 km per hour, etc. You also have the possibility of falling into chasms, freezing to death in a couple minutes if you ever fall into water, etc. And travelling there has its own additional problems.
