I love watching the "Certified Divers" come down here outfitted like the instrument panel of a fighter jet, totally convinced that they need all that stuff.

When I learned to dive it was with a Navy UDT friend of the family's, and we had a Healthways double hose regulator that only worked right if you were in a certain position, and a wrist watch and depth guage. And that was 47 years ago. Nothing about breathing compressed air has changed in all that time. The tables are a little looser than they were, but the physiology is the same.

Hey, I must be dead by now, huh? I just noticed my wristwatch ain't NEARLY big enough to be a diver's...

Two Americans move to the TCI.
