Chilean Miners Given Sony PSP Games
The Chilean miners, if you don't know who they are you must have been trapped somewhere yourself, have been given Sony PSP portables, along with their other supplies. I don't think anyone should underestimate the importance of these games to these men's mental well being.
The Associated Press is reporting the men may be stuck in this mine for a month, if not more. Take a second and think about the possibility of being stuck in a very, very dirty conference room with 32 of your coworkers and no bathroom for up to a month. Most of us have trouble making it through an hour long meeting, with coffee and donuts. How many times I wished I had a PSP.
I'm very confident whoever is in charge of what to send these men is very in tune with a man's needs. The bottles of beer, chips, and fantasy football rosters can't be far behind. People for the most part don't really like other people. We all have different likes and dislikes. These men are bound to, sooner or later, get on each other's nerves. Let's hope nothing major comes up, nobody starts to panic, and the games keep them busy.
I personally hope they get that shipment of beer soon too. As any man knows just about any disagreement between two men can always seem to be hashed out over a cold one. I just hope some network doesn't look at this situation and see another reality show. Actually, maybe there is something to this, I can think of a lot of reality "stars" I would much rather see in that situation than 33 hard working men. Let's get these men out and find a way to mine that doesn't risk lives — but maybe — we shouldn't be so quick to close that mine up.
The next time someone asks" what ever happened to that person from that reality show?" You can say "remember that mine in Chile they rescued those men from?"
