    I noticed that apology. I'd say it took him a while, and he could have done without the tempering. You call someone you know nothing about a pedophile, you just say you're sorry, period, whether or not they made a dumb comment about you sticking your mini-sub.

    Exactly.

    Land of Enchantment -- not so great for cave diving, but mighty scenic!

    Friends have asked me about this and about my cave diving, which I don't talk much about outside cave diving circles.

    I tell them two things:

    1) Yes, I'm a cave diver, but if cave diving were baseball, I'd be a high school player and the guys involved in this would be Hall of Fame major leaguers.

    2) As difficult and complicated as it looks to the non-caver, non-cave diver, it's 100 times more difficult and complicated than that.

    What an amazing effort by a huge number of people.
    I just finished watching the video too..... So many WOW's
    Kind of speechless ...

    Oh Lord , keep us safe , ALWAYS safe , and keep ME PRUDENT , ALWAYS PRUDENT !!!

    I too watched the complete video. Lots of details that probably were just lost on the general public. References to zero vis, hitting your head, and many other things that we as cave divers understand. The general public would probably hear the words but have no true appreciation for what it is to lay line in poor visibility under the stress of finding the football team. We at least have a base level of understanding the environment that can allow us to begin to appreciate what these divers were up against.

    My hat is off to each of the cave trained rescuers; and particularly to those Thai Navy divers who had little or no overhead training yet worked their way to the football team and then stayed with them.

    Every person involved from support sherpas to the citizens who lost their years crop due to the flooding of their fields deserves all of the respect the world can give them. This demonstrates how well we all as humans can join together to help others. My hat is off to each and every person involved!

    At 50 dives, I thought I had this diving thing figured out. At 100 dives, I realized how wrong I was at 50.

    If anyone noticed, he only made the apology when Tesla stock started to drop in reaction to his tirade.
