Given that we've had a couple of local deaths recently . . .
And give that it's the ones with the highest bravado and testosterone that we usually end up worrying about/rescuing the most . . .
Perhaps, Fred, you'd like to rephrase some of your thoughts or at least reveal that they were said tongue-in-cheek (because there are plenty of divers out there who dive like you advocate).
However, if this is what you REALLY belive, and the way you REALLY dive, I'll donate the body bag and offer to console your future widow when you become a statistic. (And if you're serious, I really hope you're not leavbing behind any kids.)
There may be issues on which Michael Kane and I disagree on the specifics, but we are both committed to dive safety because neither one of us feels like pulling another dead body from the ocean and we'll both do whatever we can to ensure that no one else has to either. (Although both Michael and I know that it's a futile task. Some of you are just hell-bent on dangerous practices that will enventually catch up with you.)
