Because about half of the people to 3/4 (see rec.scuba)
never leave the comforts of their home to actually do the
dives. Thus if we break everything down to the simplest form these
'PC Divers' can then expound on what we real divers are doing wrong.
They will ultimately have the latest and greatest decompression software,
and will ultimately run models toextreme depths. Then as they are
runnning the latest Doom Style game they will be simultaneously be running
their simulated diver through that dep technical dive on their make believe
cruise ship wreck. Oh no the diver came up too fast and there is bubbling in
the blood stream, oh never mind he just cracked open anither Schlitz Magnum.
