  1. Do you think any of them, ya know, did it while they were down there?

  2. Wonderful they are finally getting out. While I am writing 13 of them rescued. I saw the first miner coming up and when his son saw him, the son started to cry. I think they were tears of relief, joy and happiness.

    (@Crispy, probably the most idiotic question to ask. Pull yourself together.)

  3. Ahh, Matt. I guess you wouldn't appreciate my cannibalism question then.

    When they first lowered the capsule down into the mine last night, I totally thought the live video feed would go dead, there'd be a tense 15 minutes while no one knew what was happening, then that little wheel attached to the cable would slowly start to turn. When the capsule emerged from the ground, one of the miners would burst out of the cage gnashing his teeth and clawing his hands above his head, he's start screeching "BRAINS!!" and then he'd chomp off the Chilean president's head while everyone in Camp Hope panicked and ran for safety.

    I've seen way too many horror movies.

  4. How come he's completely clean shaven? I don't get it.
