They said that it could not be done,
He said "Just let me try."
They said, "Other men have tried and failed,"
He answered, "But not I."
They said, "It is impossible,"
He said, "There's no such word."
He closed his mind, he closed his heart...
To everything he heard.

He said, "Within the heart of man,
There is a tiny seed.
It grows until it blossoms,
It's called the will to succeed.
Its roots are strength, its stem is hope,
Its petals inspiration,
Its thorns protect its strong green leaves,
With grim determination.

"Its stamens are its skills
Which help to shape each plan,
For there's nothing in the universe
Beyond the scope of man."
They thought that it could not be done,
Some even said they knew it,
But he faced up to what could not be done...
And he couldn't bloody do it!

by Benny Hill

Eins, If you belive this then you need to get out of the fish bowl and get some experience in the big pool before you can say what can't be done.

Don't tell me I can't do what I have already done. Or in other words, don't tell me I can't do what you "think" can't be done.

Look, I don't dive a BC or a wing and I have brought up several anchors with chain from as deep as 80'. It is not difficult. The key is you can swim up more weight than what you give yourself credit for. However, when you start off with too much weight, i.e. to compensate for a buoyant alum. tank, then you simply have handicapped yourself from the get go.

An 8 lb weight is nothing kiddo, if you are properly weighted.

BTW, What kind of smart response is Duh?
