On to the Fark snark!

It was kind of rude of them to not wait for Elon Musk's branded rescue submarine.

Yessssss!!!

That is so cool.

RIP to the brave diver that lost his life in saving these kids.

Other sources say they're still getting out the seal doctor and 3 seals that were staying in the cave with the kids... Anyone have any word on them?

Ok, here's some: the farkers who said it was too dangerous for the boys to take a quick SCUBA lesson and swim out were idiots.

Now who is going to rescue the 4 rescue members still in the cave?

The last time that many Thai boys were pullled out of a wet hole Rush Limbaugh had to take the week off.

Hell with that.  I'm just going to smile, and I'm done with Fark for the day.

Otherwise, I'll wind up in the Politics tab (or whatever overflows onto the Main) and start feeling stabby.

Many people have a word on them. Many people.

AquaTatanka: The story has resonated with me in a way I didn't expect to the extent of physically making me anxious and scared for them.  Relief!


Same here.  In my neck of the woods back in 2002ish we had nine trapped coal miners and I felt the same way.  They also all got out alive and I was just thrilled and relieved.  Same today.  Fantastic news to wake up to, kudos to all involved in the rescue, ya done good.

Cheers to all the rescuers!

Now about those thousands trapped in cages...

Next team building exercise will be skydiving.

While they were down there, did they find any precious metals?

This is very, very good thinking. I'm gonna do the same.

NSFW? What, did they catch them spelunking?

It was, and is, incredibly dangerous. It's a testimony to the skill of those divers that they pulled this off.

I have somewhere around 90 open water dives. I have an advanced open water cert and nitrox cert. I've done some wreck diving. I'm in no way qualified to go into that situation.

Truly remarkable

Of course we don't have exact details, but it was my understanding that the kids may have gone in by themselves - which lead to the coach going in after to get them out.    I could be wrong though.

Can we just have one thread of happiness without dragging politics into it?

This rescue mission was an enormous and very dangerous undertaking. Those young boys should indomitable spirit and resolve. The rescue teams have accomplished the virtually impossible. Can you imagine what the parents have been put through the past several days? Today is a happy, triumphant day. Let's enjoy it.

Those who said it wasn't too dangerous were also idiots. Unless you're a Navy SEAL or otherwise qualified to do dive rescues like this one, your opinion on what is and isn't "too dangerous" in this situation is worth precisely the contents of my last shiat.

You'll find for many people, the mass incarceration of children isn't a matter of politics.

Tyrone Slothrop: take a quick SCUBA lesson and swim out


I know, right? Why would anyone need more than a quick lesson to just splish splash their way out of a cave that already killed a navy SEAL?
 
2018-07-10 8:24:28 AM  
Great that the team is out, now we just need the 3 SEALs and the doctor to swim out safely.

So... what do you think "Thai soccer boys " in government browsers leads to?
 
2018-07-10 8:26:33 AM  
First off - awesome.  Way to go divers/SEALs!  Didn't see specifics so going on an above post that someone died in the rescue - if so, definitely RIP hero.  When my number comes up I can think of few better ways to go than rescuing a bunch of kids.

That said, the "coach" is a bit of a farkwad for getting them in this situation to begin with.  Try a pizza party next time rather than putting your charges in peril, asshat.
 
2018-07-10 8:26:55 AM  
Excellent news.

/While I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, just remember one diver won't be going home.

Why does this moron assume the coach did this without the parents knowing?

Alrighty Then. unleash the Thai Rent Boy jokes you know that have been chomping at the bit.

They were correct though.

I bet they seal it off now, and unwittingly trap Injun Joe inside.
