Re: Depends on your definition of growler I guess.
My dad was drinking in the American Legion:
Yank: Where were you boys during Vietnam?
Dad: I thought the Vietcong were doing fine without us.

If there's a minicomputer still down there it's likely been underwater for quite some time. There's a reason mines need to be pumped.
Also, South Crofty has an incredibly heartrending piece of graffiti -
'CORNISH LADS ARE FISHERMEN AND CORNISH LADS ARE MINERS TOO BUT WHEN THE FISH AND TIN ARE GONE WHAT ARE THE CORNISH BOYS TO DO?'
The story goes that the graffiti was being written along the wall outside of South Crofty Mine when a policeman came around the corner. Having taken it all in, he apparently turned and walked away and left them to finish the job.
