TRUTH !!

This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the
world.
As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert;
The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches.
As a matter of fact, there are areas of the continent that have gone 2
million years without any precipitation at all.
Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, ice.), Antarctica is the
driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi
desert.
