- Stuck in a hole.
Apparently they were due out last week, but when they heard Davina McCall was at the entrance to welcome them, they did a u-turn!
On a more serious note, there were signs of depression until they had contact with the families. Contact with the outside world must be vital…Posted 7 years ago
Nah, when things get heavy, Flashy ain't got the guns. Ernie and TJ would eat him alive. I think old Shibby would be eaten quite early on, too.
'But lads, we've got supplies to last us six months'
'**** it, we'll eat him anyway. Saves us having to put up with his nonsense'.
Hora would probably drive everyone insane. I'd fear for his life.
Poor buggers trapped down there though eh? Jeeze. Can't imagine much worse really. 🙁Posted 7 years agoDugganMember
I think the psychology of it is quite interesting- the oldest guy is organising them all pretty strictly and apparently his experience managing a local amateur football team is proving invaluable now- who'd have thought?
They've also been told to designate separate recreation, work and sleeping areas and are organised into teams doing shift work, cleaning, maintaining, checking etc, as well as rigging up lighting to keep a clear day/night schedule.
Still, I can only imagine how it must feel when they found out how long it would take to rescue them 😕
'Hey guy's we've drilled a hole to give you some stuff! Do you want some water?'
'Yeah!!!, We need water'
'How about some food?'
'Yeah, give us food!;
'And some Christmas presents?'
'What?'Posted 7 years ago
No but it's true though Duntmatter. He can give it a bit at the beginning, but then Ernie will toy with him then destroy him. He just can't stay on the same page. Seen it time and time again.
Ernie's nasty. Really 'orrible. Poor Flashy would be reduced to tears in minutes. 🙁
Ooh you wouldn't wanna eat Ernie. Too grizzly.Posted 7 years ago
What you talking about Effin ?
I'm just a simple and humble member of the proletariat.
In such a situation, I would expect the Captain to provide leadership ……. using the leadership skills he honed on the playing fields of Eton, and at Sandhurst.
It's at desperate times like that, that great leaders step forward. I'm sure the good Captain would provide that much needed leadership ….. gawd bless'imPosted 7 years agoMikeT-23Member
Bringing back a serious tone, if there even was one to start, I was wondering if there was anything could be sent over to Chile and gifted to these guys to provide some distraction from the situation they are in.Posted 7 years ago
Sure, the support borehole is ,what, 20cm wide?
What could be sent down?
Rolled up magazines, maybe. Handheld gaming consoles, end-up. I thought they might like a bottle of malt as a cross-cultural show of sympathy, but would the 'experts' consider alcohol an unwise ingredient to put into that mix? Actually, if my experience is anything to go by……yeah – a bottle of whisky in a confined space means nowt but capital-T style trouble.
What else would you send down?
