Eating Coal to Survive


Two Chinese brothers who tunnelled their way out of a coal mine collapse after being trapped for nearly six days survived by eating coal and drinking urine, according to a newspaper report.
.....
He said because they were eating coal and were in the mine for nearly six days, they did not defecate.

"We were only able to do that the day before yesterday in hospital. It was full of coal," he said.

Both men say they will not go back into mining.

Tea Party Nazi Reenactor Rick Iott Defends Himself - ABC News
In the press release, titled "Rich Iott Statement on the Latest Kaptur Campaign Lie," Iott also published several images of him dressed for other military reenactments that he participated in with the group Wiking from 2003 to 2007, including an image of him in a U.S. World War I military uniform and one with him and his son Ian in Union soldier uniforms from the Civil War.

Iott said he has been involved with historical reenactments from different eras since graduating from college and his interest in reenactment is purely historical.

...

Kaptur spokesman Steve Fought said the Wiking reenactment group promotes "a twisted and dangerous view of history" and Iott's involvement with the organization is "outrageous and indefensible."

We've known at least since Reagan that the Republican party is a racist party.

"in Union soldier uniforms from the Civil War."

This kind of thing just doesn't help to to diminish that perception.
