You STILL haven't addressed ANY of the problems
I've brought up with what you've posted.
All it takes is Nitrox I to shoot holes in "Karl's
best mix". I've got Nitrox I.
Entering Monastary with reg in mouth IS a good idea.
There are lots of situations where it will help
(get knocked down, start swimming) and I have yet
to see a case where it would not. I asked on
ba_diving (LOTS of Monastery divers there) and
the consensus was "reg in mouth".
Snorkels are an entanglement hazzard in kelp.
They may well be useful to beach divers for the
swim out, but for a boat diver (such as myself)
they aren't useful. And on a recent beach dive,
I, snoreless, left several snorkel divers in my
dust on the swim out.
An SCR does not have an unlimted Air/Nitrox supply.
With the normal mix in my Dolphin, I've got right
at an hour. Not unlimited. Above about 70',
gas supply is the limiting factor. And I have
about 4x more tank dives than SCR dives. And at
least 2x, maybe as much as 4x, more tank dives
than YOU. But you've never fessed up to how
many dives you have.
I've never personally attacked you, just pointed
out the problems with what you've posted and your
past experienced. You, on the other hand, have
called me "psychotic" and "asshole" and other
When when have I insulted you? Post the URL.
I haven't thrown personal insults at you. You've
called me "psycho", "asshole", and lot of other
You said I should sell my GF on the street.
What accusations have I made that I myself am
guilty of? Post the URL. Be specific.
What lies have I told? Be specific. Post the URL.
I was in California when you were still in high
school in Germany. I moved here in 1968.
Once again, all you have done is to attack me
without addressing the issues I've brought up
with what you've posted.
Answer the questions.
