    Aparently when they were stuck down there they sent iPod's down loaded with the James Taylor Quartets "A Few Useful Tips For Living Underground" :D

    This has been an amazing story, particularly the good humour and positive nature displayed by the trapped miners. I'm actually looking forward to hearing them tell their story, They came across as very down to earth (no pun intended) and genuinely funny guys.

    Good one!

    I can't wait to hear their story too.
  6. They are now automatically worth over $1m each to the media for the sale of their story. This should go a long way to help them support their families, as both have resigned from the mining industry (not surprising).

    At least, the $1m price tag for their story is money well spent and we won't have to endure the endless paparazzi photo's of Tom and Katie in next week's fluff mags.
  7. Thank God they got out OK. :hyper:

    This is a much better ending than the one in West Virginia in January.
