    I'm not naturally pessimistic, but I couln't see any way they'd find these guys after this time. Good news story - I bet Trump tweets that it's either a hoax, or he'll take the credit.
    No - Trump will think they’re illegal immigrants trying to tunnel their way under the U.S. border. He will then boldly announce that these are “bad guys” and should be sent back home, and then come up with the usual crap of “Let’s keep America American, so we’re going to build a wall around these bad caves.”

      The film. First 30 minutes depicting the period up until their found, will be a black screen as they have not light.
      The rescuers. If anybody deserves a Knighthood, surely it's these guys.
      The rescue. If there's a god, he will ensure their safety. Stand by for an all nighter as they bring them out though.

      The first 30 mins will be getting to know these wonderful kids, as they go on an adventure. The black screen bit for the next hour is a bit of an issue. I don't know how long they kept their torches going, presumably a flick of light every now and then.

      All-nighter? Might take a bit longer than that.

      The latest article about the situation, with diagrams of the difficulties. The Thai navy have sent doctors and nurses in to examine the boys. Two Navy doctors have volunteered to stay with the boys for as long as it takes.

      Was huge news when over there. Glad they've been found. 4 months stuck there will be more bearable with all the lights, food, company and mentally knowing they have been found than those first 10 days I'm sure!

      This is one incredible effort. A 2k dive required this morning it is said or the alternative is try and find away to sit out the monsoons I guess. WTF. Anyone who has ever dived will know how ridiculously difficult a 2k dive would be, unbelievable and this isnt an open water on the Barrier Reef or Red Sea with some nice fish and coral to look at, its bloody cave diving in hopeless condiitons to untrained divers who wont have seen the light of day and will be mentally and physically ****ed. I am gripped by this, the task in hand now should not be under estimated. I dont know, but if there is anyway to ride it out till after the monsoons that must be the less risky option I would guess (though obviously the decision makers here will know a zillion times more than us.) When I first heard 4 months of food, I just thought wow, why. It must be torture down there, possibly 2 weeks is just the beginning. I did some caving once in Derbyshire where we had to turn our lights out and the darkness was undescribable. Blacker than black you could scrunch your eyes up and blink and it was no different if that makes sense
