Even antartica isn't lifeless. I just read an article (can't remember 
which random magazine) which discussed the debate between Americans and 
Russians over accessing a liquid late underneath antartica that is the 
size of Lake Ontario. Samples from the frozen (sub-ice) surface indicate 
life... there is a huge debate.

So many "lifeless places" on Earth hold some sort of "life" (depending 
on your definition...) :D
