    It must have been that Dunkin Donuts stand in the cave...They are everywhere. [​IMG]

    And I liked the part where the rescuers passed chocolate to the trapped people. I hope they didn't give the stuck woman any. [​IMG]

    Also, 22 hours?!? It must have been nasty with not only the people having to go to the bathroom....But, the lady stuck.

    Upon reading only the thread title and just watching the Decent, I thought to myself "there weren't any fat chix in that movie"

    I just watched that too. Heh! I immediately thought about the many ways the woman could've been removed....rather quickly. Just have plastic bags ready to clean up the mess.

    I can't imagine the embarrassment.

    Here in San Diego there is an old WWI Russian submarine you can tour at the maritime museum in the harbor. (Pretty interesting if you happen to visit.) At the bottom of the gangplank leading to the hatch there is what is essentially a piece of pipe...maybe 30" or so in diameter-tops...and a couple of feet long. The sign reads, "you must be able to fit through this opening to take this tour." They aren't kidding. I'm 6'1" and fairly limber and I had a tough time with it. I couldn't stand up straight in 90% of the ship. I can't imagine being locked up in there underwater for months at a time.

    Anyway...On our way out we saw a woman coming in who was definitely headed for the same predicament as the woman in the cave. Check your claustrophobia at the door, please.
