I mean obviously aside from things like family, friends, sunlight, decent food, starry nights, the sound of rain, sex and sanity, the world’s seen a lot of things in the past 68 days that if you were deep underground in Chile you might have missed out on. Things that we’ve experienced collectively that you just couldn’t imagine how you could have lived life missing. Now that they’re back out on the surface, let’s help them catch up with what’s been going on in the world since August 5th.
Things like (in no particular order):
Minecraft. Bet they’d love that one. (Thanks to Delsyd, mgoodfel and others for reminding me that I somehow forgot the obvious.)
Congrats to all 33 miners on making it out and having to put up with such a raw deal. Congrats on your fresh air freedom and getting back with your families, friends, sunlight, decent food, and I’m sure someone will catch you up with Dancing With the Stars if you ask.
Also FOR SHAME mainstream media for missing so many great headline puns like “Miner incident turns into major celebration.” Not even you, New York Post. Not even you. Or “Chile warms after miners rescued in major operation”? DOUBLE PUN.
