World explorer Tom Avery joins the 404 today to talk about how he's conquered both the North and South Poles of our great planet Earth. Boy, does it make Justin feel terrible about his life, Wilson know he'll be eaten like in the movie "Alive," and Jeff promise to beat Tom on his next journey.

Normally, The 404 is kind of a technology show, but more often it is not. Today is one of those days where we take a break from our virtual Wii Tennis game and get into the nitty gritty of life, man! Wanna know what it's like to run out of food in the middle of the cold artic? How to cross an ocean of constantly moving ice? What about having to decide whether to eat your dog or starve to death?

Well, Tom Avery tells us and you about his adventures, and we promise it's a good story. Apparently, when you fall through the ice into cold water, the first thing you should do is run as quickly as possible. Don't hold us to that, but that's what Mr. Avery says to do. No Twitter from the North Pole and no Santa Claus, either.

Our caption contest is still going on. Make your best caption for this photo of Justin. Call us at 1-866-404-CNET (2638), or shoot us an e-mail at the404 [at] cnet [dot] com. It's your chance to win a copy of Wheelman for the Xbox 360. Vin Diesel kicks some major boo-tay.
