Access to the Trapped Chilean Miners

Remember the miners in Chile that were trapped underground on August 5th? They're still down there. Rescue workers continue to dig toward them while sending essential supplies down a 3.19 inch hole. Newsweek has an infographic illustrating what has been sent down and up this tiny access space. These items include water, an iPod, a tiny projector for entertainment, and blood and urine samples.

The miners have requested cigarettes and alcohol. Their request was denied

this example seems somewhat pointless, as all the food i eat and liquids i drink could easily fit through that hole

also a gameboy with pokemon

i could live like that for along time

Sure you could if you were alone down there or even with one other companion that you would not want to murder even after being there locked up only one week with no possible shortterm escape.

But now try to push enough food and drink and other daily nescessities for 33 people through a fragile 2,230ft long pipe of that size minus communicationcable(s) and see if both ends still stay happy for the whole duration...
