Up from the under.

Not sure I'd look that cool and collected after 14 nights in a hole. Tough blokes, miners. Glad they made it.
It's bloody ace. Best news all year. A tragedy that Larry Knight didn't make it. Brant, Todd & the crew being there'll get the Knight family through.
"They are good fellas," the rescuers told the Seven Network. "(Brant) is just a joker, he'll be cracking them up now, having them all in fits of laughter. He's just a true blue full-blown Aussie larrikin."
Can't really know what top people the blokes (& the sheilas these days) & their families are until you do the life. Miners going way back in our lot. A lot of jokers and funny bastards with attitude. Learned this from me dad:
Life's too short for whinging on bugger all & feelin sorry for yourself. If you're going troppo, see a quack, if ya can't see, get specs, if you're feeling crook, see a doc & take the bloody pills. If ya hear some nasty on a mate, front the bloke on the subj' before ya take on any bullshit. If your motor karks it, walk or cadge a lift. A good yarn'll sort out most bullshit. Smack someone round the ear only if you have to, anyone ya meet's a mate until they show otherwise & ya can bullshit all ya like but don't bullshit yourself.
So glad they made it.
Wow. Relief and admiration.
Miners going way back in our lot.
You're Welsh, aren't you?
*Diet Pepsi spit-take*
And that is truly amazing. I've been thinking of these guys since the news came out that they were trapped. I can't imagine the fortitude it must take to stay calm in that kind of situation.
well thank god they're all right...(i was hoping they'd be cuter...oh well, put em back)
Nope, not Welsh. Old English going way back. 5 gen' Oz.
