    I just wanna go dive

    I'm sick of reading about obscure European Safety Standards for critical life support yadda yaddas. I'm tired of sock puppets, people accusing people of being sock puppets, and sock puppets accusing other sock puppets of being people. I'm tired of global conspiracy theories. I'm even tired of agendas, vendettas, and feuds. (And I'm directly related to the McCoys, of Hatfield/ McCoy Feud fame! LINK Yeah, I know. My side lost. I'm over it.)

    I just wanna dive. I know these beasts are dangerous. Give me a freaking break. Who, here, bought, trained on, and started diving, a freaking closed circuit rebreather, with no idea that it was capable of killing you? Really? You had no idea? Why don't you go look for spare change on the railroad tracks for a while, while the grown-ups talk? Run along, now.

    For one reason or another, it's been a couple of weeks since I've been in the water. That's pretty rare for me. I'm going out tomorrow after work with some friends. And I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning!

    I know, I know- it's dangerous. Someone could get hurt....or die. They could also get hurt or die driving to the dive site. And, yes, I know- there's room for improvement in the industry- there are many deaths, and many we can't explain.....and I do care, and I have spent a ridiculous amount of time reading about them.

    But, in the meantime......I'm going diving tomorrow. :D
    Wish me luck.

    Re: I just wanna go dive

    Nailer99- I think you speak the way a lot of us here feel on this site. Now, why don't you tell us how you really feel about it

    Have a safe dive and I really, really hope you don't get in a car accident on the way to the dive site;)

    Ah, Nailer my good ol' dive buddy! Finally decided to come out of the closet as a "non-sock puppet", eh? ;) Great rant! Honestly, one of your best!

    Sorry that I won't be able to join you this weekend underwater, but my sinuses and nose are still frickin' packed with gauze!

    If we can get a LOT more folks with your attitude participating here the "new" ADM/RBW will soon be better than ever!

    Have a great dive....and remember your temporarily shore-bound dive buddy while you're down there!

    - John
