    I thought it might have been six because the mining minister mentioned 6. Well at least I was near with 5

    It's alright for you, it's not bedtime over there. People are interested here because they want them all out before they go to bed

    This is just one of many threads I'm posting on. Mostly I'm talking to you and others. It's kind of diverting. IRL, I'm doing yet other things at the same time. One thing I'm not doing, is watching the Live Feed of the miners coming out of the ground.

    Why?

    Last night, you wouldn't go to bed until the first one had come out.

    Why?

    I'm watching television, watching miners live and watching you trying to wind us up. It's most entertaining

    I didn't go to bed 'til the 2nd one came up. I wanted to go to bed happy

    It's good if you can be entertained watching a 24 hour live feed of the miner extraction.

    Well it would be much more dull without you, Johnny, telling us how dull it is all the time.

    I agree. Don't go Johnny. Number 32 is almost up.

    I wouldn't dream of going to bed that late.

    It was 5.15am.

    I love good news. It's good news that the miners are coming back safe and sound. It's the 24 hour live feed part that I'm having a bit of trouble with.

    Anyway, I'm just bugging you because it's something to do. It's not really a huge deal one way or the other, is it? I'm not getting on your case in a serious way, I hope you realize.

    p.s. the world is full of good news. You just have to see it.

    Shreddy Please. Take some off my cheek.

    In my gaybourhood, that would be a "he", not a "she". :)

    Yah, I know.

    But still, I'd prefer some sort of taped condensation. Maybe a half hour show, with a new family reunion every minute...

    nah, you don't get all the tension if it's condensed

    Yeah, and he'd be wearing a plaid shirt with jeans, shirt open to the waist with belly out, in that place down Davie, close to Bute Street, across from the Parkhill...

    Sure you do, but it's like a fast taser, not like a IV slow drip.

    Christ Johnny. Lighten up a bit. Minnie's obviously really into this, as am I. I just got back from The Cambie; they're still watching it on TV (I mentioned in an earlier post, this event actually trumps hockey down the old dive bar...)

    Ich bin ein dirty smelly Chilean miners today JC. Chill. Rejoice. :rolleyes::)

    I can't believe that they ever watch hockey at the Cambie.

    Johnny's excited as the last miner will be here in less than 10 minutes.

    editor Like an ultra left hatboy on heat

    I'm watching it. It's as gripping as Apollo 13 was.

    Shreddy Please. Take some off my cheek.

    You wrote this just as I posted the ^^^above^^^. Yes, just got back from the Cambie, watching and high-fivin' Chilean hard rock miners with a hundred or so hard rock losers feeling good about humanity for once.

    Actually, I was there to score pot. :);)
