    Yeah, someone needs to start working on a screenplay based on this. A real life epic story with heroes and a happy ending.

    Yeah man, I'm glad they all survived being down there for more than 2 months. Kudos to the folks who were able to secure their safety and recovery during that time, and to the miners who were able to tough it out.

    Well, now they'll have to tend with their wives and mistresses fighting over them and their compensation. Whoops!

    I prefer to think of them as regular, and in some cases flawed, men who survived a horrific experience. Nothing more. Inspiring? Sure, absolutely.

    I saw part of the live broadcast for a few of them coming out of the mine today. It was quite touching to see the reunions.

    It must've been such an ecstatic feeling to breath fresh air and see the sky again.

    Well, I was actually referring to the scientists and engineers who are responsible for saving their lives as the heroes.

    While I agree a movie would be interesting, it’s not because the guys are really heroes or anything. It’ll be interesting to hear their stories of what they did to survive down there for 2 months and all the side stories that go with it (like wife and mistress of one guy). A female came out to greet the guy with the wife and mistress. Some news channels reporting it was his wife and other reporting it was his mistress and the rest just didn’t know so no one really knows at this point who came out to greet and hug him.

    oh i see. But a movie with the scientists and engineers as the focal point would not be interesting, sorry.

    Awesome news! I'm so glad that they're getting them all out and that it will be a happy ending. Though I don't envy them the consequences of the choices they made with their wives and mistresses, at least they're alive. I can't even imagine what they went through down there... here's hoping that they continue to do well, and recover from any psychological issues that may come up from being trapped for so long.

    Now I see why some of them were arguing with each other to be the last one out of the mine...

    Seriously, I'm glad the rescue is successful so far and I hope they get everybody out safe and sound.

    It's a miracle that the miners managed to last this long, having been trapped for 2 months or so.

    Glad that the rescue went smoothly.

    31 miners rescued. Watching the live broadcast stream on the internet. Really inspiring to see such a phenomenal thing happen.

    Major kudos to the rescue workers who were willing to go down in the mine to assist the trapped miners.

    Also major kudos to the miners for hanging in there for 69 days. A few of them had to adhere to a strict diet in order lose weight to fit into the rescue capsule. I can only imagine what it smells like down there.
