    I think it was a political post for something that lasted 296 years. :confused:

    Edit: After some googling.

    What it has to do with the miners, I don't know.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly.

    Bodycustom is usually a lot more coherent than this.

    Dunno, I sometimes have trouble reading his posts. There have been posts where it took me a good couple of minutes to figure out what was meant.

    It must be just me...

    Not at all. At least three people (counting myself) are just as confused

    One can only speculate, but it would appear it's an attempt to compare the ordeal of the Chilean miners to Hanoi Hilton prisoners of war, perhaps inferring the POW's are more heroic than the miners due to the length of their captivity.

    It's kind of an apples-to-oranges comparison though. The miners were, en masse, victims of a very unfortunate accident, and not imprisoned at gunpoint due to being captured by enemy combatants while at war. But, I think it could be argued that the miners were heroic in whatever actions they may have taken to survive their ordeal, just as did the Hanoi Hilton POW's. Totally different types of ordeals, however.

    But, yeah, definitely a kinda cryptic posting...
