We all dream of being in the water everyday. In our spare time we are usually in the water, so when do you get a chance to read this forum? How many are at work abusing their Internet privlages? :naughty

If I read the Deeper Blue forums, then I improve my education about Freediving.
If I improve my education about Freediving, then I become calmer, yet totally focused.
If I become calmer, yet totally focused, then I am better equipped to handle crisis situations.
If I am better equipped to handle crisis situations, then my ability to perform my job well increases exponentially.

This is absolute proof that reading the Deeper Blue forums has helped me to be better at my job.

This is the argument I will be producing at my interview with HR next week, following the internet abuse probe.

Hehehe - I love this thread. However I hope we won't need to start adding legal disclaimers :D

I was thinking this morning about what is the reason we freedive?? is there something else behind this?? is there a unanwser question behind this??

I remember when I was a kid and living very close to the ocean -- everytime I had a problem I feel the necesity of going to the ocean and relax or think It was like looking for a answer or for a help-- ( well- I just found it)

you are ok friend -tecnicamente- deeperblue and freedivers here have help us to improve the fisical part - and it help us to be more efective when doing freediving - also the necesity of beeing together and enjoy and share something we like- it makes us feel good.

yeah i have to study to my lessons instead of reading forums but if you can't dive to sea for some reason this is the second best place to dive:D
I'm blessed with alot of time off, but I would have to say when faced with a task (ie. doing my taxes...) I often poke around here instead. Can't say I've really been on here while I should be working though.

Must say I like Altsaint's way of thinking though! Here's some karma!

The poll results indicate an even split between work and home. Maybe so, but I sure see a lot more posts during the week than on the weekend. I wonder why that could be????? Hmm is it after 5?


Interestingly enough I have a deeper insight into the traffic across the whole DB network as we spend a lot of time analysing it.

I can tell you that the vast majority of people who visit the site do it within working hours!
