Jeff, Is this your interpretation or are you speaking for the intire diving community?

What should be embarassing is your re-interpetation.

Anon posted on a non-technical scuba forum his bad ass/ tuff guy dive plan for a couple of fool hardy dives to 180' and has little to no idea what he/she is talkking about.

This behavior is like waving candy in front of kids. But from a pedephile!

For your information Jeff Shaw, Anon wrote about CNS. That would refer to Central Nerous System Oxygen toxicity. Anon said that the VPM gave a limit for this. In diving VPM stands for the Variable Permiability Model developed by Yount and Hoffman. This is a Decompression Model that accounts for the changes in the surface tension of a bubble as the polar charged molecules in the surfactant of a bubble create various levels of on/off gasing as a bubble grows or shrinks.

Nowhere does it relate CNS in any form that I know of.

So when a big time Tech Diver starts beating their profile on this recreational forum and has no-idea as to what they are talking about, and deep down inside they are actually sayng, LOOK AT ME you guys are nothing, bla bla bla, there dangerous BS needs to be called before someone follows in there foot steps.

Dude, it's like hanging a carrot in front of a mule. This sport has many type a personalities in it. If you wave these types of carrots in front of some of these people they will want to seek out what ever it might me that adds that badge of courage to their chests. Most often they are unknowing victims.

These people that hang these carrots are refered to as STROKES in a large portion of the scuba community. The term stroke refers to these people who stroke their own egos. It has nothing to do with the N word but if your soft feeling think so so be it. Too Bad !
