+ 1 for UPS bringing the drilling tool to Chile
Thats Logistics!!! Great outcome for those miners, its good to see something like that in the news for a change.
Perhaps the best news this year!
I'm surprised Gloria Allred wasn't there signing up clients !!!
I would hope that the Chilean government does the right thing by these miners.
They'll be exploited.......either by the Chilean gov't or somebody else. There's book deals, movie deals, Guiness records, etc. There's bound to be in-fighting because it's just human nature when there's money involved. There was already some spatting when deciding who would be the last miner up........he would be the new Guiness record holder for longest trapped person to come out alive. The gov't is going to pay them for 6 months......they should all go on a huge getaway with their family and hide out from the papparazzi.
There is a mining tycoon in the area who is giving them each 10k. Their avg monthly pay is about 700 bucks.
10K seems an appropriate gesture considering the number of days they were trapped and their lifestyles prior to this incident.
Watch for the movie coming out....Brokeback Mine !!
If that is exploitation, sign me up .
I'm with Pickup ... I think I would be looking to exploit the situation as best I could.
Fly me and family to New York City to be on Good Morning America.
Memoirs of a Chilean miner.
I`ll wait for the off-Broadway musical.
The "drilling Tool" never left our center
Hoax, its illegal to exploit a miner
That's a minor point.
All kidding aside, I would have liked to hear about this at a PCM. Little pride builder in the center kinda thing, instead of how not to get hit while parked. Rant continued elsewhere on this subject..................
Long, rough day Toons?
Every day is long and rough, and yes it was a little rougher than usual, but thanks for caring
That's what we're here for!
