I understand the need for the ban of public access to the bottom of the crater, but it's a shame.  I've been there three times and every time I get a little closer to jumping the fence.  It calls to me.

He should have just thrown in a coke bottle.

It's the Koralyan tracking chip implanted when you were born.
Any closer and the mother ship's artificial gravity would probably suck you right in.

fta Via the radio, Singh informed the rescuers that he believed he had dislocated and broken his right arm, had a broken leg, and complained of severe pain to both of his legs. He also reported frequent episodes of loss of consciousness.

Then the gods have rejected your appeasement and you should kill yourself. Or plant a shrubbery. Your choice.

I've only been there once, but I understand.

I'm always amazed at how close that meteor came to destroying the visitors center.

Maybe the local diner was out of dutch apple pie and he couldn't handle it.

He should have done like all the other Johns and strapped a board to his ass.

Well, they did need to re-pave.

To be fair, if anything is going to grant you super powers, it's jumping into a meteor crater to appease the Gods. Or possibly This.

Displeased are They.
 
2013-01-11 10:11:27 PM
What a waste. The man is nuts. It took 30 workers to rescue his sorry ass. Now some hospital emergency room will be stuck holding the bag for treating his broken legs and hypothermia. Or some health insurance company. And what for? He'll just go shoot up some crowd or himself for some gods again.
 
2013-01-11 10:14:26 PM
They had to rescue him.

If they didn't we'd be wrestling with:

'Is the reason he remained within the shaft a sign that the gods were pleased, or that they do not exist?'

And we really don't want to have to hash that one out now, do we?

Both myself, and my Dad (who was reading over my shoulder) LOL'd. Thank you for a very good chuckle.

At approximately 8:20 p.m., rescuers lowered supplies including food, water, a portable radio, warm clothing and a flashlight to the man.

You're doing it wrong. Back up a series of cement mixers, and empty them into the hole. Moran gets his wish, and you don't have to deal with more bullshiat like this.

I see what you did there.

He just needs to find a deeper hole to jump into.

Ready?

You've got two broken legs, and you're tripping balls at the bottom of a mine shaft.

GO.

So, why is it restricted? I'm not trying to be a smart ass.

You'd think the public would be interested in exploring the crater. Is it because of the mine shaft? I only ask because there are obviously thousands and thousands of similar mine shafts around, with a lot more simple access and a lot fewer safety measures, and there doesn't seem to be a problem with people jumping carelessly into those. I suppose it could be that this one is well known and draws a lot more people.

Then again, if it's only 100ft, how come they don't just fill it back in and be done with it?
 
2013-01-12 06:47:16 AM
People were getting hurt down there and it is a pain in the ass to get them out because they have to carry thmout by hand. The crater is wierd in that it crashes aircraft because of the odd winds.

Gentlemen! We cannot allow a mineshaft gap!

/Can't believe I'm the first...
