Of interest to divers .............
« on: February 23, 2006, 07:59:26 AM »
Don't know how many SCUBA divers we might have hanging around but this is somewhat note-worthy. Thialand is on most all divers wish list. One of the best dive spots on the planet and a great place to see pelagics, especially whale sharks.
The "discovery" of a reef is becoming more and more rare obviously.
Here's One
Unfortunately, divers (mostly the occassional) are notorious for not using common sense and being "polite guests" while visiting these magnificent eco systems of unparalelled beauty.
Evreything from "Shark feeding" operations and tourist-level divers who have to touch everything and allow their guages to drag along the coral make my stomach turn. Not to mention throwing a Twinkie wrapper overboard on the way back in.
But I digress ..... ::)

We used to dive, too. IT is alot of fun. We only had the opportunity to dive the lakes (puddles) here in the midwest, like Don.  Norm used to take his speargun with us. Once he speared a big old carp and the thing took him for a heck of a ride.   :o  I always wanted to dive in the warm waters,  like the Florida Keys, but I never took the time. I have a feeling now I would be hard pressed to squeeeeeze into my divesuit!  smiley_bouncing

Furby Furby Furby  ::)  You never tell a woman to just go get a bigger size.  ::)  Geeesh!  "You need to say something like, oh no honey, you would look great in that divesuit you used to wear."

She knows you are lying, and you know you are lying, but it doesn't matter.... She is happy with the thought that she still looks good in your eyes.

Just let me know if you need any more helpful hints.  ;)

I have always taught my son and nephews that when buying a woman clothes or guessing her age or clothes size, ALWAYS go 10 years younger and 5 sizes smaller than you think!!!

I too was hoping for a follow-up on that interesting comment  ???

I just figured it was something I was 'posed to get - like when you're in a crowd, someone tells a joke, everyone dies laughing but you don't "get it" but you laugh too so you don't look so dumb ;D

Yep!  It's a joke.  One that is funny if you're 18.

A fellow needed to buy his wife a birthday present.  He was already late and couln't think of anything.  Remembering her saying that she wanted a new bra, he went to the women's dept. of the local department store and began to shop.   Seeing that the man looked perplexed, the sales lady offered help.  "May I help you find something" , she asked?

"Yes, I'm looking for a brassiere for my wife."

"what size does your wife wear", asked the clerk?

"A six and seven eighths", replied the man.

"I don't think we have brassieres with sizes listed like that.  With what device did you measure it?"

"My hat", replied the fellow.

Those were "The Good 'Ol Days" when jokes of that nature were considered risque. Sort of gives your age away though :) Tom.

In the dive community there is sort of a joke that seperates newbies from old salts. Those of us who started diving before there was any such thing as a computer that strapped to your wirst and took the computations out of you pre-dive calculations re: bottom time etc. goes like this:

"I started diving when diving was dangerous and sex was safe.." Now of course it's just opposite.  ::)

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
