New Contest Results


To what do the following numbers refer?

5, 8, 17, 33, 69, 2010, 2300.


On the 5th of August. 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped 2300 feet underground. They were there for 69 days and for the first 17 days there was no communication from the outside world.

I consider the story of their rescue one of the most remarkable stories of all time for the courage, fortitude and ingenuity of the miners and their rescuers.

The first correct answer came from George Lord Millenbach of the Alphabet City Miilenbachs. So he wins the grand prize of a bag of genuine South American desert sand. Good going Sir George.
