    Amazing story....hope all goes well

    33 trapped Chilean miners could be rescued as early as Sunday -

    The 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for two months could be rescued as early as this weekend if engineers decide not to reinforce a newly drilled shaft with iron tubes, USA TODAY's Victor Herrero reports.


    "The rescue could happen as soon as this Sunday," says Andre Sougarret, who is in charge of the rescue team at the San Jose mine in northern Chile. "But we don't know yet for sure. In any event, it will be between Monday and Friday of next week."

    Sougarret says engineers are debating whether to reinforce parts of the 2,000-foot shaft with iron casing, since the shaft is not 100% vertical.

    That's great news!

    One of the miners had his wife and gumada show up to wish him, er, well. Maybe he'll offer to stay in the mine

    Time to resurrect an old post:

    "They're encased in miles of rock. Above them rock ascending to an indifferent sky; below them rock descending to a molten, angry core. Their hearts yearn for the soft warm breath of their lovers. They sing lullabies to children that cannot hear. They wank themselves raw to the porn their rescuers have so thoughtfully provided.

    It's not such a bad life."
