Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

13 miners are still missing
As reported yesterday, the mine-catastrophe in Novoshakhtinsk closed 46 miners in icy water. While 33 could be rescued yesterday, the remaining 13 are still not found. Their relatives still hope and pray and people say, it's possible to survive some days if they'll find a dry tunnel.
Of course, whenever something like that happens, there come up questions about how such a catastrophe could happen.
Here we live under the impression, that in Russia many technical things really don't do what they're supposed to. When the Y2K change was, we were joking about seeing no danger in Russia, because nothing is so far computerized that Y2K problems could occur. I know, this is unfair and not true, I guess in many areas Russia is as well equipped with technology as we are here, but that's just how we see them. As the BBC reports in Search resumes for Russian miners, "Accidents are notoriously frequent in coal mines in Russia and its ex-Soviet neighbour Ukraine." Yeah, that fits in my view.
So, such a mine-catastrophe does not really make anyone wonder here. All I hope is that the last 13 miners will be found alive and healthy, soon.
