Reports swirled through the world today as eleven North Chinese miners emerged from a collapsed mine after nearly a week inside. To the shock of many, one of the miners recalled how the group fed on dirty mine water, paper, orange peels, and a half-boiled leather belt to survive.
It would be remiss of me, however, to omit the fact that if the mine owner had actually reported the accident when it happened–instead of three days later (for fear of being fined or shut down)–these poor miners might not have resorted to dinging on leather goods TO SURVIVE.
