    Exactly. I got a U in maths and I even managed to count at least 8.

    Someone's fucked up here and it ain't me :mad:

    CNN says 29 now. At the time of the post, it was 28.

    Why not just accept that the BBC is right and CNN is wrong?


    (except about the amount of men still there after the miners)

    They've pretty much admitted they've no idea how many - four or five (or six). Mind you, it's taken them nearly 24 hours to realise the thing guiding the cable is in fact called a 'pulley', not a 'brick' or a 'tool'.

    Two I'd stay up for, five or six? Nah.

    They've just said FIVE rescuers, but I can only see four, despite thinking all this time it was FIVE.

    This is fucking annoying

    Yes, EIGHT. I win :D:D:D

    Meanwhile The Guardian

    Is the fifth one holding the camera?

    I quite like that the live feed from down the mine sometimes kicks on to its anti-virus, and then it gets swiftly clicked off. NO UPDATES NEEDED!

    May have put it down because it looked like I was able to count 8. Maybe the camera's freestanding somewhere?

    PS: I read hours ago that the last rescuer to go down will be the last to come back up. Who's going to strap him in though? He probably knows how to do it anyway, he's probably been there for dozens of them already

    Fuck both of them: here's the best news source.

    http://www.cbc.ca/

    Orang Utan like an outdated combine harvester

    the inconsistent reporting of numbers of rescuers in the mine is obviously evidence of a CONSPIRACY. i'm sure of it. what's really down there? this mine rescue is certainly some kind of diversion. are there alien artifacts down there?
     
  20. Minnie_the_Minx

    Minnie_the_Minx purves grundy - definitely a bloke


    Out of date. Only 29 miners rescued there
     
  21. Minnie_the_Minx

    Minnie_the_Minx purves grundy - definitely a bloke


    More likely aliens after all the gold down there

    Releasing balloons into a dark sky with helicopters flying around :hmm:

    You know why? Because that article was written at 4:27 PDT. You know why that is? Because it isn't being reported in real time at CBC internet. You know why that is?

    Because we're not fucking idiots!

    i don't think a balloon stands much of a chance against a helicopter :(

    Well you are really, you keep coming back on to this thread for updates

    It could blow in their windscreen and obstruct the view of the pilot. Nah, I think they should release loads of them when the last one gets out

    No, I keep coming back to give updates, in a totally sarcastic manner.

    It's really a heartwarming story, but.......................boring.

    BBC now saying six (the breaking news panel on screen, not the on-site reporters)

    You can't see balloons in the dark. Better to let off fireworks that explode into a giant flag of Chile.

    If it's so boring, what are you doing here? Don't you have anything else to do? :(
