Diving Thoughts....

1.Every dive is optional. Every ascent is mandatory.

2.Diving isn't dangerous. Drowning is what's dangerous.

3.It's always better to be up here wishing you were down there than be down there wishing you were up here.

4.The ONLY time you have too much air is when you're on the surface.

5.The regulator is just a big valve at the top of the tank used to keep the diver cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the diver startsweating.

6.Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

7.The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the speed of arrival at surface. High speed of arrival, small probability of survival and vice versa.

8.Never let your dive gear take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

9.Always try to keep the number of ascents you make equal to the number of descents you've made.

10.There are three simple rules for making a no bubble deco dive.Unfortunately no-one knows what they are.

11.You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

12.In the ongoing battle between bubbles made of air expanding fasterthan flesh and blood, the air has yet to lose.

13.Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experienceusually comes from bad judgment.

14.It's always a good idea to keep the regulator in your mouth as much as possible.

15.The three most useless things to a diver are the spare cylinder on the boat, computer with no battery and those missed deco stops back in the water.

17.There are old divers and there are bold divers. There are, however,no old bold divers.
