"propaganda" (?) Well thats a little extreme is'nt it? Like I said in my opinion, the tank stickers are'nt for your benefit, they're for mine. No kidding they don't assure me of whats in the tank, thats why I have a gas analyzer. And who said anything about PADI, What is PADI and why does anything PADI teach affect me? Of course having a discussion about the harmful affects of Nitrogen might add hours to a PADI class, but I doubt it. In a nutshell, breathing compressed air is dangerous and if there is a safer way to do it, I'd like to know about it in an entry level cert course. As a matter of fact, I'll even go so far as to predict that "recreational nitrox" will be the industry standard in the near future. That means that students will begin their first pool work using it.
Lead, follow or get out of the way.
