I've got a better one for you SlowButSteady.
I went to an ear nose and throat surgeon specialist to have my ears checked out as required before a certification SCUBA dive.
He said that diving in the pool wasn't the same as diving in the ocean because the ocean was so much bigger. I said I thought it was the depth the diver went down not the breadth of the body of water. He said Oh no the breadth was the most important.
I didn't argue with him as he had sharp instraments near my brain.
Don't feel too bad, I once had a physics graduate student try to tell me a very similar thing.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
