An interesting little view into some hard working people's day.

I felt the need for a long hot shower after watching this, even on a hot summers (here and now) evening.

Another somewhat quirky look at the same Taiwan Coalmine and other operations around there also. The sped-up video makes for a laugh.

Just love those single blade kick switches that those women deftly realign in a fluid movement

Looks like an antique system. Interesting.
