Then both of you should get out of Vinny's beloved threat immediately!

(Sorry, not really but certainly that came to mind).

I guess what I am saying is that I don't think the Thai authorities have any responsibility to us to get the word out quickly. That should be at about the bottom of their list of priorities.

Vinny, no one says it should be their priority though.

Judging from what happened after the first four, it may take some time to lay down caches of air tanks before bringing out the next batch.

Mr Dennis also said he thought the boys would have been lightly sedated by a doctor who joined them in the chamber, to prevent them from panicking during the journey out.

That's true, 2wilz. Although it seems that with the rescue of the first four, they had only cached enough for that operation and not subsequent ones. Space may be at a premium, I suppose.

The delays may be necessary to allow the divers to off gas.
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Will they be diving deep enough to have to be concerned about that? I thought that they just needed to sleep.

Anyone have any guesses as to what this indicates?

1 wild boar
2 forest moo
3....8 wild boar

This from Thai Navy Seals Facebook page. I get the wild boar references but what is the forest moo?

moo = Thai pronunciation of pig/boar

8 wild boar = the eight rescued boys, they're free

Well done. (I think.) Google translate tells me that the Thai for pig is hmu. And I bet the Thai for wild boar is literally forest boar/pig. The Thai letters following the numbers at Waldos' link all seem to be the same. Not at all clear why Google Translate handled the words following 2 differently from all the others.

Vinny- my eyes were playing tricks on me earlier- I thought I saw differences in the Thai but on closer inspection it does indeed appear to be a translation error. Damn I had a great conspiracy theory worked up!

If they can only take out four at a time, does that mean that one person (the coach?) will be left by himself for a day or so?

Cave conditions have not changed much and the plan is to bring the remaining 5 out today. The divers started off about an hour ago. Here’s hoping that today goes as we as the previous two days. Sadly the team will not be released in time to go to the World Cup.
