Discretionary dilemma
The digital (almost) does not divide

Yakutia, in northeastern Siberia, is Russia's largest region and experiences the planet's coldest temperatures, but for the inhabitants of this remote place, the cold isn't an obstacle, it sustains their very lives. Braving -41 degrees Celsius, locals harvest ice to use as their only source of potable water as tap water is only available two and a half months of the year due to freezing pipes. With the cost of digging wells too high because of the thick permafrost that freezes the ground all year, the majority of the villages in Yakutia stick to the old ways of ice picks and frozen eyelashes.
