    Second is out almost ready for the third. This is a historic event and the outcome could not be better.

    You know I would not mind being trapped in a working copper/gold mine myself...

    Something dont seem right .. They been down there for 69 days, and I saw the first miner come out and he was looking like he just left the bar..lol Clean, no oil dirt smiling fresh breath, but he been there for 69 days..

    Also his hair was freshly cut and he emerged with sunglasses after 69 days with no sun

    They have been supplied with personal toiletry items. They have turned this into a show. They have freshly shaved and cleaned up for their families and for the cameras. I think it's fine...it helps the morale. They don't want to look all shaggy and feel dirty. Thank goodness they had the mole holes to deliver food and other personal items.

    I am really happy for them, I truly hope nothing goes wrong and all get out safe.

    Though I feel sorry for the guy whose wife found out he had a mistress and both are waiting for him when he comes out...he just might be the last guy out....

    Hey Wiz I am too. It's amazing that Chile President is there greeting each one that comes out, personally.

    Good to see a tight group of people who take care of each other.
