    My prayers are with them.

    May this rescue to the surface, be a success.

    poor bastards - i dearly hope that they are well looked after and their families for the rest of their lives. i cant even begin to imagine what it feels like being trapped nearly a kilometre underground. and to be trapped for WEEKS down there. here's hoping they dont ever need to work for another day in their lives.

    if ever there was a need for a "bail out" , its these folks. and i would be utterly happy with paying tax for it.

    Jesus christ man, they have 20 football pitches to run around down there.

    They're miners, they are used to being a mile underground.

    I hope they're rescued but lets not get carried away.

    They sure will be 'Chile Miners' when they come up, I believe it is damn freezing there.

    I hope all goes well and each and everyone comes up safely.
