You have to go down in a high speed drop shaft to get to the workplace. The shaft walls are slimy and stinking 10 inches away from you and moving about 60 km/h. I have seen a few miners with a few drinks in them stagger and reach out a hand to support themselves and pull back a stump. It is hard work but someone has to do it. That's what the propaganda tapes tell us (even sing to us) that we feed a third of the world's population. It helps to make some of our moods better. Not mine though I always knew I would get out of this place if ever the chance came knocking.
