1) The miners are all actors, right? They are far too eloquent on achieving freedom (or well translated). And the mine is just a set in an abandoned lot in LA, yes? So much product placement: the unnecessary sunglasses (there are lights in the cave, right, unless the photos are faked?), the country logos. I mean, the mining minister made a pitch for greater commercial ties with South Korea on international TV!

2) I heart @mrchrisaddison’s Tweet: Unemployment in Chile rising by practically one an hour.

3) Got to see #21 (wife and mistress on hand). It’s better than Big Brother any day.
