    Didn't they teach you not to pee on your hands when syphoning the python?

    The vis is shit at the moment. Donít bother if thereís a south or westerly wind. Aside from that itís a dive. Nowhere as interesting as a boat dive, even a drift dive. Some life, the odd crab.

    Does anyone else find the prevalence of posters in bogs telling you how to wash your hands rather, erm, patronising, trite, annoying, wasteful (how many trees died for the printing) and down right...

    Are lifeguards essential to go swimming?

    The beach I was at yesterday has never had lifeguards. Quite a few people in the water too.

    Gosh. Just goes to show how ubiquitous fast broadband has become. In your circumstances BT's offer looks quite good.

    From what I've experienced, the clubs I've dived with have all been pretty relaxed. There's the pre+post dive sheet to fill in, but that's not too onerous. Even tolerated my solo diving without...

    Not a film, but an hour's documentary (is that allowed here?)

    Never really saw it like that, but now you mention it, this is a critical point about joining BSAC's system.

    On the face of it this appears quite restrictive, especially if, like many people, ...

    If that poxy storm hadn't come in this weekend, we'd all have been diving by now.

    Tomorrow's forecast is better. Bank holiday Monday. Dive for some lobbies for the barbie on the beach!

    Is that an ageist comment? People of all ages can be ignorant gits. Youfs are an easy target, but so are mummies letting their feral brats run riot, middle aged groups of divers, etc.

    That's what we expected 10+ years ago. Wrong contract?

    Problem with accepting something like that is they could degrade your service to that level. You won't be able to watch your telly at those...

    The dive manager does seem to be a cultural thing with BSAC. As an outsider, BSAC diving seems quite regimented, certainly compared with other agencies. Maybe it's because UK diving is frequently...
