If there's an upside to spending months trapped in a mine in Chile, it's that you get a ton of time to play games. The rescue holes they dug in Chile are just wide enough to fit a Nintendo DS or PSP, and you'd have countless hours to while away while buried alive playing Chinatown Wars. Sadly, evil psychiatrists are taking that pleasure away from the poor miners. In an effort to keep the crew in the mine sane, professionals have denied requests for MP3 players and video game systems, because it is feel they are too isolating.
"With earphones, if they're listening to music and someone calls them, asking for help or to warn them about something, they're not available," The rescue effort's lead psychiatrist Alberto Iturra Benavidesm said. "What they need is to be together."
