    Don't know how true the Wikipedia entry is but the origin of the name of the Bobbitt worm will bring tears to most men's eyes!

    "Bobbit worms may be accidentally introduced into artificial environments.[4] In March 2009, the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Cornwall, discovered a Bobbit worm in one of their tanks. The workers had seen the damage caused by the worm, such as fish being injured or disappearing and coral being sliced in half, but did not find it until they started taking the display apart in the tank. The worm was nicknamed "Barry"

    Another Bobbit worm, 1.1 m (3 1⁄2 ft) long and several centimetres thick, was found October 7, 2013 in Maidenhead Aquatics in Woking, Surrey."

    I remember that happening but didn't associate the lie-in-wait worm with her...

    Something for the rebreather divers here. One thing I noticed on last nights episode is that the camera crew on the Inspos all seemed to have "wonky" mouth pieces with the breathing tubes seemingly way too long on one side. Is this normal? Are they being special or is it totally fine?

    Were they turning their heads at that point ie not looking directly forward?!!

    People do often leave their loop hoses a bit long. It is something APD themselves have commented on. The hoses are supplied long enough to fit just about anyone on the planet but can be cut down to size to make a more personal fit. Most people (me included) haven't bothered and thus have a little extra hose here and there. It isn't special, just lazy!

    Hmmm trying to remember, I seem to remember one of them looking head on and the hose being significantly longer then the other, causing the hose and mouth piece seeming to sit at a slanted angle. I am asking out of pure curiosity and ignorance with breather fingys

    Be careful. The curiosity alone can lead to death

    Is it just me getting pissed off by the rediculous sounds effects? Why demean such superb visuals with such unrealistic noise?
