Cave rescue after Thai boys and coach found after 9 days underground

Discussion in 'world politics, current affairs and news' started by Pickman's model, Jul 2, 2018.

  1. We’re owed a documentary on the divers and others who rescued them, and how they did it. Rather than some Hollywood made up thing.

    I'm so cynical these days, that I figure Hollywood would give us an all-white cast.

    He even criticised the judgement of the expert who politely explained that his kiddie coffin was not required, the twat.

    The doctor who chose to stay in the cave

    Stayed there 3 days. The Australian anaesthetist was on his holidays in Thailand. No doubt he was the one who stabilised the boys and sedated them.

    What's sad about his story is that his dad died just around the time the last boys were rescued.

    He was one of the last out of the caves.

    Apparently they were given ketamine :eek:

    Also things were pretty desperate because the whole cave system was running out of oxygen and the water was rising rapidly as the last rescuers fled.

    Plenty of great movies have been based on actual events.

    Plenty of shit ones too - I guess we'll have to see whether the producers decide to shift the action to Utah, make it a baseball team instead of a football team, introduce a love interest, and conclude with Elon Musk (playing himself) saving the boys with a fleet of mini-subs.

    The key question for the movie is whether Matthew McConaughey can do a British accent without mumbling.

    LynnDoyleCooper Up against the wall motherfucker.

    Ketamine is actually really safe to give people. It's easy to manage the dose, and there's not really any worries about overdosing. They might looked 'knocked out' but would have been able to breath and maintain their own airway OK.

    When buddhism and ketamine is combined anything is possible.


    Insert K-hole joke here.

    Used in A&E with traumatic injuries where there's not time for full anaesthesia IIRC. You're conscious, you just don't give a shit about anything.

    “Don’t give a shit” is a bit of a sideways interpretation of ketamine.

    Don’t understand giving or shits, and have forgotten what giving is, was, or ever has been by the time you’ve reached the “shits” part of the sentence, more like.
     
  24. That doesn’t disprove SF’s point. It’s just nit picking at it.

    I think I must have missed the bit where I said I was trying to disprove something.

    :hmm:

    I also find your point about bananas really disturbing.

    Too busy trying to piece back together the fragment pieces of your conscious understanding to notice whats going on, is more like it.

    Rick Stanton (one of the UK divers) used to be a regular speaker at dive-related shows and events. Hopefully he will put some thing together for this.

    Since he can't do an American accent, he might as well try a British accent. Maybe he'll find his niche.
