It took them a couple of months, but these Chilean miners were able to surface back up to the real world.
I gotta hand it to these guys. It's bad enough to be stuck in a cramped place for so long.. but the fact that it was 90 degrees in there.
90 effing degrees, cramped, 30 some odd guys all sweating their asses off. How uncomfortable is that?
Jesus... they've managed to pick up 17 out of the 33 miners from that hell hole and there's already talks of book deals, movies and other offerings for these guys.
My question is this.
Knowing fully that you would be given these once in a lifetime chance at celebrity status, would you endure 3 months of 90 degree weather, intermittent food supplies and just the fact that you're next to 32 other sweaty dudes?
I'd have to say, I couldn't do it. No matter how much money is thrown at the table. 3 months of this hell.
Hell to the no.
