I heard another had been on the job for only 4 days . . .  :-\

Hopefully they can all find other lines of work giving motivational speeches about overcoming adversity :)

A very long shift. I wonder if they'll get paid for the entire time down there.

Two questions:

 1. What were they mining? I understand the mine will be completely closed now.

 2. What happened to my friend Poor Bastard? Did his girl friend or wife meet him? Surely not both.

   Gold and Copper

   The girlfriend showed up.  He had already left the wife before the cave in.

I'm guessing none of these guys will have trouble upgrading their girlfriends or wives if they want to . . .
