There's a chance they might need to wait a few months in there until the water subsides after the monsoon season.

 

God, that would really suck but at least they now have people sending in food etc while they come up with a plan.

Good news. It's a lesson to always carry a lot of water with you when you go on these sorts of adventures. You never know when this sort of thing can happen to you.

Reminds me of going in caves with my dad in the Ozarks up in Arkansas,,,  we were such idiots,,, totally casual and unprepared.  Looking back just lucky that fortune was on our side.  Fast-forward a few years and I'm out running around Philippines with my gf,,, we went on one of those 'Cave tours', think it was Bohol,,, can't remember.   I walk in about 10 meters and then just this feeling came over me and I told her No fkn way I'm doing this, turned around and walked out.  I'm claustro and every other bad feeling one gets stuck in a fkn cave.  She went ahead and done the tour though,,, haha,,, ballsy'er than me!

 

Honestly, I figured those kids were done for.  what was it, like a week?  Amazed to the extreme that they got outta that jam.

Luckily it wasn't  a miracle, just dogged persistence by skilled searchers. If it was a miracle, the poor bastards would have to spend the next 2000 years worshiping  them instead  of just saying "Thanks a lot mate".

This could be the news story of the century if it's ten percent true.

Next year they should go snow skiing in July and celebrate global warming, better than drowning in muddy water.

From the world of crazy news stories, those dirty jews are stealing our clouds.

 

I remember the last crazy leader in Iran said rats swam 400 miles from Israel to give them bubonic plague.

This cave is a 'magnet' foradventurous teenagers, it seems. But what was on the coach's mind when he approved and led/followed them in there? I shudder to think what they were up to in that cave..

One of the divers has died coming back out. Poor guy, I can't imagine how scary it must have been to run out of air in a dark, narrow tunnel.

RIP to the man.

 

I wonder if this will mean the kids end up staying there for as long as it takes for the water to subside.

I half expected this thread to be about the three rhino poachers who got eaten by tigers.

Divers Free 4 More Boys From Thai Cave, Bringing Total To 8

 

Officials said Sunday that it will likely take days to free all 12 boys and their coach from the cave, where they are trapped on a muddy ledge 2.5 miles inside a winding cave network that features a "choke point" roughly 15 inches wide that's nearly impossible to navigate with oxygen tanks. Rescuers are scrambling to complete the rescue mission before rains in the forecast flood the cave even further. Five boys and their coach remain stuck inside the cave.

The 12 boys, who are part of a soccer team known as the Wild Boars, first went missing more than two weeks ago following an initiation ritual gone horribly wrong. They were discovered roughly one week ago by two British volunteer divers, who found them huddled along a narrow rock shelf deep inside the cave system. Authorities have refused to release names to the media.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
