"Your profile will become less exponential and more linear than a nitrogen dive. That because helium comes out of tissue quick and is not retained in slow fatty tissue like the nitrogen. You have to start slowing the gradient at depth more so than shallow ( as compared to a nitrogen dive)."

No comprende, amigo. When, where, and how much is your next trimix course? And once certified, where and how much does it cost to fill a couple of tanks. I would imagine it's rather costly for just two dives on a charter boat trip. I've been consuming hightened partial pressures of Nitrogen for 36 years with no apparent negative physical or mental degradation, so I really have no urgent incentive to switch to He considering the conservative profiles I dive. And that's probably the longest sentence I've ever written!
