Ralf is just learning the Scuba-L TRADITION, the LATEST of which is Monsieur Jean-Marc Vitoux. ;-) >>This brings me to the question shold Speed diving be a sport >>at the next Olympic? > >Certainly not. diving's an activity - not a sport! :-) Strike! Sacrilegious! diving's a RELIGION! Listen to all the divers preaching in Scuba-L. Just like preachers known in some of the religions here (Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Baker, et al), some in Scuba-L don't practice what they preach either. ;-) And some preach the wrong religion, as Rev. Bob Jones of Bob Jones University in this neck of the wood has lifted his BAN on "inter-racial dating" on YESTERDAY, and only having been verbally clubbed by Presidential candidates for being a "bigot". We have the likes of Bob Jones in Scuba-L also. If I name names, they would say I am 'name calling'! :-O Ahhhhhh ... what a refreshing way to start a morning (here). -- Bob.
