Great news! This story has been on my mind and in my conversations with others for the past couple of weeks. Something about it really got to me. I was honestly relieved to read that they are all out.

And yet thousands of migrant children sit and wait in cages in the US to be re-united with their parents.

All 12 wild boars

Yes, I quite agree. Only swine will let themselves get trapped in a cave.

Hooyah

I hope you felt as stupid saying that as I did reading it.

Irony abounds.

I don't understand what took them so long. Those kids lack muscle or anything resembling physicality. They look like you could pack them in a sardine can and stick it in your back pocket and swim out.

Getting all these kids out alive is amazing ... I thought for sure they were all goners.

And that Thai Navy Seal who gave his life trying to rescue them is a hero.

All this helps restore a little faith in humanity for trying to do the right thing.

Now everyone is out. The medic and three seals that stayed in the cave with the soccer team have left the cave and made it back safely.

No. They already made a movie about a stranded soccer team. Can you imagine a movie shot entirely in a cave? A bunch of guys standing around talking about what they're going to eat if they get out? And then some dummy telling everybody, 'Time is running out! We have to rescue them!' And then a bunch of people with shovels and a couple of back loaders. Finally, they get them. Everybody already knows how it ends.

Plus, they're all Thai. Probably Muslim. You'd have to get some regular Americans to make the movie at least sell to producers. Bruce Willis would be the digging guy. Justin Bieber (in his debut movie role!) as the leader of the soccer team...

You mean the idiot coach who led kids so far into a cave? I think Justin would turn down that role, even he is smarter than that.

uhmmm.... there were signs telling everyone not to go in during the rainy season... it was pretty big too... located right out front of the entrance....

Very assuring Thai adults can be just as stupid as American adult "Demoncrats"

Had to add the last bit to stir the pot...

So will Hillary run again? Thought she was spokeswoman for Depends...

No, he'll be busy making a movie about the worst president in history. He'll have the starring role.

Yup. A Trumpster in the making. They can't read and Rules don't apply to them and they don't care about the safety of children.

Someone where I work told me these kids and their coach were actually on a biking trip and were surprised by a monsoon storm with very heavy winds. They went into the cave to get out of the monsoon but didn't realize that the water would keep rising and forcing them farther and farther into the cave.
