    GI III....What a twat

    I have just spent an entertaining hour reading the bile and vitriol from GI III from 2003

    Aquanaut Mailing List Archive Service

    I have to say (as a big fan of GUE and DIR in general) I am awe struck by his ability to pontificate on a subject he so obviously knew sweet f/all about.

    On the other hand its easy to see why the anti CCR lobby got such a foot hold among divers. The statistics were truly awful.


    I got into CCR a year after this crap from GI III was posted and a hell of a lot has changed thanks in no small part, to the Internet and sites like RBW, but i have to say the level of ignorance concerning CCR diving a meer five years ago and the level of information available now is simpley staggering.

    Some times its worth taking a step back from RBW and just appreciating what a wealth of life critical information it really is.

    Thanks Stuart.

    waddya mean? Georges rants contain better one-liners than monty python. The man's genius, and should be on the stage.

    I'm thinking of having some of his finer vitriol as a tattoo.

    No, I dont think so. I saw him recently, although he has changed his name.
    He is now known as Zap Brannigan.

    Apparently he's packed up diving and is into big game fishing in tight shorts and crop T shirts which is a bit worrying :D

    His departure from GUE was a little sad considering it was him that put them on every ones radar and not so much the achievements at WKPP.

    It's hard to get stains out of velour... Obviously from the salt spray... Ahem...

    He was a twat but he was funny and a lot of people on the receiving end of his vitriol really didn't do themselves any favours in the first place. OTOH him and Wienke were pretty much the final stroke (pun intended) that finished off the Deco List.

    He once sent me an email to say that something I wrote on Techdiver was the most offensive thing he'd ever read. I took it as a compliment but I can't for the life of me remember what it was :D

    Cheers,

    Stuart
