    Whenever I found myself going in one of those really deep caves I always just strapped a 2x4 to my ass

        Astonishing. How could this happen? No pony tank as a reserve?

        Dude, its Thailand. If those kids were trapped in the exact same cave in the US they would have been out in a day.

          "Thai" SEAL... and even if was an American SEAL, he'd a been massively under qualified for that task. "Noble" for sure, but if only a SEAL without a ton of other training/experience, a noble, but foolish, endeavor. Pretty positive Law will back me up on that.

            That statement, used in a story about cave diving, is literally about as obtuse as it can get.

              Im just reading that he "ran out of oxygen" in the pocket between the flooded areas. I guess I assumed ii meant he ran out of air while diving. It is still hard to believe. This is rescue 101 type stuff.

                Look, without some really odd reasoning, the pathway to that cave where they are located should be littered with spare air supply by now. Not enough information.

                  But, like DG said, it's Thailand.

                    I pretend to know zero about SEAL training, but I can say that cave rescue is a VERY specialized endeavor & skill set.

                      It’s crazy to watch unfold. I think they finally have some outside assistance in the rescue.

                          Just stop! Quit faking. Everyone knows conservatives do not care for brown people, much less children.
