Well, six of the twelve ae said to be out now. And I doubt that half of them would get into Harvard even with two weeks intensive coaching etc. So you're right.

Not if Harvard stops discriminating against Asians.

Harvard should give preferential treatment to underprivileged blacks and Hispanics, but should do so without discriminating against Asians or Whites.

The BBC wrote:There's no time to waste in Hollywood, as the arrival of two American producers has proved.

Pure Flix, a US film company, has got its partner Michael Scott and co-producer Adam Smith in Tham Luang and they're already conducting pre-interviews for a possible movie project, according to news agency AAP.

Asked if their actions might be seen as insensitive, Mr Smith said: "There's going to be other production companies coming in so we have to act pretty quickly."

Why not?

It's a terrific story and it's a bit rich for other sections of the media already crowding in there to accuse them of insensitivity.

I actually had thought about inserting a flexible plastic tube in parts where the cave tunnel is submerged, similar to one of Elon Musk's ideas, when there was still no clear idea how to get them out, but then I didn't know how (Im)practical that would be and if I could think of that idea which was actually good, someone in the actual rescue team would too.

It was tight enough without any extra restrictions in there.

I mean most of us Stew fat bastards wouldn't even get in there in the first place.

You probably shouldn't have posted that, DCC. Elon Musk hates publicity.
