I can't believe there's no thread on this. I posted about it in the World Cup Thread, but then decided it was deserving of its own. Post #118: http://forums.theganggreen.com/threads/2018-world-cup-russia.90706/page-6#post-3705344 http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/0...-without-using-diving-gear-official-says.html http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-07-06/elon-musk-sends-spacex-to-help-rescue-thai-soccer-team/9950934 The things that I've read about this and the absolute terror these kids must be living through - especially since by all accounts they can't swim, I just try to focus on the fact that they were found alive. One Thai Navy Seal perished (how selfless can you get), and it's a race against time to get them out. Why in the HELL this soccer coach said, hey, Adventure Land - apparently he's taken the kids there before - would decide to do so when seasonal rains were approaching is nuts and beyond stupid to me, but that's immaterial right now. They're basically living in their own pee and crap, having auditory hallucinations, malnourished, sensory deprived, have no clue if it's day or night, oxygen is being pumped in but depleting, and time is running out. The water levels are due to rise again. Every solution that the international community came up with was looking less and less viable. The water in the caves is murky, you can't see even with lights, and the kids would panic and make everyone including the expert divers drown if they tried to swim out. That's what it was coming down to, swim or die, or swim AND die. Now they're desperately trying to drain the water before monsoon like rains hit tomorrow. This is thing nightmares are made of. Much respect to the world coming together on this. I hope they don't lose anyone else. RIP Saman Kunan. Getting a hero's burial as he well deserves.
