A) Why in the hell would you risk going to 150', on air, if you weren't into wrecks????;

B) Because, as we have demonstrated on numerous occasions, the algorithms in the computer models are less than ideal for this type of diving;

C) As you, yourself, have indicated when getting into *this tpye* of diving, DIR is the way to go and we all know that you are miles and miles from DIR;

D) This type of dive should NEVER be done on air;

E) You aren't OE trained and as such shouldn't be at 150', on air, in a wreck;

F) You aren't qualified;

G) This type of diving takes training, dedication, mindset and preparation the sum total of which you have demonstrated time and time again that you are unwilling to understand;

H) Anyone who thinks that following an outdated and ill-equipped algorithm for this type of dive is obviously NOT prepared to make this dive;

I) You can't justify your ridiculous overweighting nonsense at 150';

J) What would you do if your *computer[s]* failed and you were in deco????? ( ie: lock up, as most do in deco);

K) Buhlman algorithms provide for 5 minutes at 150' ( pre NDL's) and given a descent rate of 60 fpm you would have 2 1/2 minutes at depth and it would be STUPID to risk the dangers for 2 1/2 minutes BT;

L) You are not tri-mixed trained and lack the fundemental understanding to complete this dive in a safe manner;

M) We have already had too many deaths at the Moody;

N) You don't rate safety as your number 1 priority;

0) You have little, if any, experience in a buddy team and as such would a liability;

P) Your gear configuration is a liability;

Q) If you changed your gear configuration to an acceptable set up you wouldn't know what the hell you were doing since it would be all knew to you;

R) You have little, if any, acceptable level of experience at these depths;

S) Who in the world would dive with someone they didn't know for the 1st time at 150'???;

T) You know NOTHING about decompression diving and that is what you would be attempting;

U) Would you be able to hold a deco stop with all that weight???;

V) Why in the world would you attempt a dive like the Moody without deco gas??? ;

W) You exercise a poor attitude with respect to what can happen if things go wrong???

X) You have no contingency planning;

Y) You have no support divers;

Z) You are a stroke:

Other than that, you go ahead and do the dive....
