Everything you ever wanted to know about trapped Tasmanian miners but were afraid to ask

The trapped miners in the Tasmanian gold mine are close to being rescued from their tiny rock enclosure nearly 1km underground.

They’ve survived over 10 days trapped in cramped confinement, unable to stand up and in pitch darkness.

The Australian media has been reporting on virtually every single possible piece of information that they could to pass time until any progress could be made to reach the trapped pair.

There has been a saturation of every personal detail of the two men. I now know their marital status, how many kids they have, pets, where they grew up, who their parents are, past jobs, interests, hobbies, favourite colour and size of underwear they wear.

I’m not being critical of the two poor bastards underground, I’m just saying that the media should maybe not be so bloody intrusive, stop bothering the scared families and only report on the progress of the rescue efforts.

In the meantime, there has been an email attachment circulating (pato!) with the subject line of: first Tasmanian miner walks free from the mine!
