Great, now China is ripping off Chile's intellectual property.
 
2021-01-25 2:29:55 PM  
So, they decided to save only the elven?

Bravo. I was wondering who would get a clever headline on that one.
I really couldn't think of one.

I really never do.

I read that as "elven" and it still made sense.

Has Musk claimed that any of the rescuers were pedos?

I guess that's one way to do the 14 day Covid Quarantine.

I just came from a thread about racial stereotypes in D&D and here we are arguing about elven miners.
 
2021-01-25 3:08:56 PM  
i am over 6 feet tall so i see a lot of elven people...
 
2021-01-25 3:09:58 PM  
not to be confused with the FN people.
 
2021-01-25 3:12:56 PM  
Heh, nice headline Subs! I'm actually quite impressed with the robust effort China did to save these guys. Probably just because international attention was drawn to it

I thought that the miners were all dwarves?

Normally yes. That must be why they needed rescuing.

Can we get our news from American Thinker instead, please?  At least their articles' comments are funny.

Miners, subby. Not minors.


/why don't you have a seat
 
2021-01-25 3:47:35 PM  
This feels all good now, but then they'll need to go rescue some more in a few hours.

I wanna be a miner and get farked by a mountain

But why even though? There are safer ways to do this.

Auuuu, what a heartwarming story.
 
2021-01-25 4:05:24 PM  
Why are they mining exploding gold, aren't there safer isotopes to mine, that don't explode?
 
2021-01-25 4:35:36 PM  
They lose 5,000 miners a year avg. That is nuts. There must be mine blocked shafts all over the place with like 100+ people who died a slow death just sitting there mummified or rotting depending on the climate. That's the shiat of nightmares.
 
2021-01-25 4:40:33 PM  
Chinese Gold Farmers? Thought Blizz had banned enough of them to quit that shiat.

Slypork: Has Musk claimed that any of the rescuers were pedos?


Musk only claimed the man was a pedophile because the private intelligence firm he hired to investigate the rescuers decided to pad the resultant dossier to secure additional funding.  I mention it because it's an even darker indictment of Musk's personality.

Don't be a miner in countries that start with "Chi".

You just need the right guy in the mine with you.
