Trapped in Squeeze Test for hours [The Age] 23-Apr-2014 At 11:31:53 AM Will_P
I'm interested in why it took (alledgedly) 10 hours for the idea of lubing the guy up with cooking oil to turn into action? This certainly isn't meant as a criticism of the professionals and volunteers involved, I'm sure more appropriate options were considered and/or tried first - what were they?

Like most here, I've done the Squeeze Test a couple of times, and I've thought about how terrifying it would be to get truly stuck. I also thought I'd get someone to pour a truckload of oil onto me if that happened.

Regardless of my brilliant foresight (or just a subconcious desire to be covered in oil), very glad to hear he was extracted without serious injury, nice work by those involved in not destroying the boulder too.

Oh, and the always-reliable Herald-Sun todays says the Squeeze Test is done 'hundreds of time each week'. Wow. Who's the local doing laps in this thing daily?
