Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Stuck In a Hole (in Chile)

This is pretty crazy.

3 weeks ago a mine collapesed in Chile, trapping 33 miners. THEY ARE STILL ALIVE. They are stuck in a 10m by 5m room. They lived this long rationing crackers and tuna and found water.

They spend their time playing cards and dominoes and planning their escape. The men have formed a democracy and have split into 3 teams: 1 in charge of contact with the surface, 1 in charge of security and safety, 1 in charge of health.

The stay in touch with families and officials above ground via items passed through a pipe 2,300 long. They just sent up a video of their cavern:

Here's the real kicker: They won't be able to get them out until around Christmas!

So SE++, what would you do if you were trapped for 4 months? What would you need to survive and maintaint your sanity? Who would you want to be trapped with? Who wouldnt you want to be trapped with?
