Uh... keep the Speedo on. Please. :yack

hey now mr. sven...

i'm thinking.......let's see..... rainbow bright on your wetsuit(sf people would love that).... and maybe a shirly temple in your hand.... maybe even some high heels on the feetsies. and, maybe getting it on a local personal ad as a GWM seeking fun times in the bay area?

:confused: eh?
Re: Re: Re: Snorkel drag

I intend to stay clear of Octo now whenever he 'purges' his very small and short flexible snorkel. :blackeye
Nothing to a front-mounted snorkel with duct tape instead of a mouthpiece... Gives you less drag and more air, or... more water.

'Normal' snorkels always end up tied to my left leg (behind the diving knife).

By the way, what's wrong w/ speedos ? I like speedos. :D

Something like this, Mr. York? :hmm

Keep it up kids and Sven won't get your abs for you.

Whereabouts in California did you say you live, Sven?
Good hunting.....whatever you're hunting for:naughty

God, grant me the serenity to accept...

Altogether everybody!, Y...M...C...A...

Man! I lose my sense of humor here, you guys are in, uh, deep water. That's OK... you'll all need the Sven-man one of these days, turning you on to the hot ab spots, defending your honor from idiot posters, holding his own contests and correcting your spelling. :t

A good man

Just a thought to make that snorkel issue even longer...

I never did any SCUBA diving (and I am proud of that fact :t ), but isn't there a statement somewhere in the manuals, that you are not supposed to use snorkels longer than two feet? :D

Now I wondered, am I in any kind of danger...?:blackeye

Btw, does anybody know when mental puberty ends? :duh

Have fun guys and gals!
As for snorkels...keep it safe by keeping it short


CO2: the larger your 'dead space' (= the parts of your respiratory system that hold air but don't take part in the gas exchange process + your mouth cavity + your snorkel), the more air you will have to reinhale at each breath.
Reinhaled air contains extra CO2. Inhaling too much CO2 can make you lose consciousness but usually before that you'll start breathing faster and deeper, feeling 'out of air', and getting a bit of a headache.

Another thing is, when swimming deep under water w/ a long snorkel you will also have trouble expanding your lungs for inhalation because of the increased pressure difference (ambient water pressure and surface air pressure).

Scuba courses are good for something, you know... :t

Hi Lynn,

I'm so sorry. I tried to use the word "snorkel" as a metaphor (as quite a few posts in this thread did before) and "two feet" long as a hyperbole. In addition, I tried to use tons of smileys to show the irony, but I clearly failed... :waterwork

Lynn, I appreciate your concern, but you don't need to worry to much:
-When my elder brother did his first scuba course, I also attended his theory lessons at the age of ten. From then on Boyle-Mariotte and all the rest was pretty familiar to me.
-I keep preaching about the risks of hyperventilation for more than twenty years now.
-I have read "Tauchmedizin" by O. Ehm from cover to cover (about 800 pages). There are some interesting pages about historic experiments with 2m long snorkels that led to instantanous blackouts. (Kids, don't try this at home!)
-I have a Ph.D. in physics and a strong interest in (diving) physiology.

I'm specifically sorry, that my unsuccessful irony attempt hit you, one of the few mermaids at deeperblue :head
so I won't use irony again!


Okay, maybe one last time:
Scuba courses are good for something, you know...
...and maybe someday one will find out, what they are actually good for! :D
hee hee...oops.

I do have a tendency for taking things a little too literally. :eek:

No need to cut down on the irony though.

Cheerio !


P.S.: What SCUBA courses are good for... for me it's a 'know', for you a 'find out' :t

Just so you know, the "giant snorkle in lieu of speargun" version of your portrait did not get posted...yet. Soooo, where did you say those coves with the 42" lings and 11" abalone were?

I got your snorkel hanging...

Well... I was out today. One dive, three foot viz, 5' swell=
three abs, smallest was 9 1/4" the biggie was 9 13/16".

Sooo... start taking your supplements, then call; my number is
