If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.
I have a personal problem with anyone in the least bit frightened of water taking up diveing as a sport.
Diving is a safe sport but many many people die due to irrational actions as a direct result of panic
I witnessed the death of a diver who panicked, spat out her reg and bolted for the surface refusing all assistance from 30m simply because she saw her gas was well into the red??
I love diveing and I think its a great shame everyone cant experience the feeling of tranquillity I feel underwater but too many times I have seen people who I just knew shouldn't be in the water, end up in a bad state or dead.
The last fatality I was on the boat for was a diver I had seen use any minor excuse NOT to dive on a previous dive trip (a trate with people about to quit diveing as thy have lost their Mojo) and somone I knew had not been in the water for ages. I said nothing and I did nothing and he died on the first dive of the trip.
I simply don't understand why such a person would choose diveing as a hobby.
Its supposed to be fun
Diveing in a swimming pool in a highly controlled and well supported environment as therapy to overcome a feer o water would be the maximum id personaly be prepaired to support
