Why they were here?

I believe no one could get these flags:

1/ Antarctica: population is 0.
2/ Bouvet Island: no one live here.
3/ French Southern and Antarctic Lands: Far far away land and very cold.
4/ Heard Island and McDonald Islands: Is there anyone live here?
5/ Pitcairn Islands: There is one Government-sponsored satellite internet connection, networked to all houses on the island. Only 67 islanders.
6/ Saint Helena: Saint Helena has a 4/2 Mbit/s internet link via Cable and Wireless International UK. That means you will never get its flag but instead by UK flag.
7/ South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: About 20 people are living in this very cold place.

But I've got some rare visitors from unexpected lands; since July 30, 2009 ( the first day I added Flag counter into my blog):

Re: Why they were here?

I don't think it has much to do with how remote/cold those areas are, but more with the existence of an internet company in those places
So for 1, 2, 3, 4 & 7: what are scientists then - penguins? 
5 & 6 are partly correct

It is not true. Even if there are no indigenous inhabitants, in Antarctica there is a population of about 1,100 scientists in winter, that arrive to 4,400 in summer. In addition, approximately 1,000 personnel, including ship's crew and scientists doing onboard research, are present in the waters.

Because of this reason, here are the countries and/or dependent territories with less population than Antarctica:
Pitcairn Islands: 50
Cocos Islands: 544
Vatican City: 800
Tokelau: 1,499
Niue: 1,520
Norfolk Island: 1,748
Christmas Island: 1,843
Falkland Islands: 3,198

Why not? The matter is intriguing and actual, even if in the business card of the thread starter there are 2 dead links http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Why they were here?

I had one visitor from Saint Helena who really was living there.
