I just ran across this news story on the BBC: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-11054376" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-11054376</a> Awesome! It's always a good heart-warming thing when you hear about people surviving stuff like this. Being a miner is something that I just could not do... ever. I'm not claustrophobic or anything, but the risks just don't seem worth the rewards to me. But that's not the part of the story that has me thinking "you've GOT to be kidding". This is: That's right... MONTHS. They estimate 120 days, assuming they get bigger/better mining equipment. Forget the "limited access to food", we're talking about 33 miners in a small shelter the size of an apartment, for 120 days. (somewhat morbid) FOCUS: Do they make it, or not? What do you think the end results will be? If you were there, what would you do to survive? How do you think you'd react? What do you think would transpire? ALT-FOCUS: Share any experiences you have of being trapped in an undesirable situation.
