    Apple Cult

    This video pretty much sums up the cattle like cult of non thinkers that Apple has been able to cultivate. I'm not bashing Apple, good for them, this kind of thing is the success you can get in the marketplace by reaching a tipping point of everybody wants to be in the cult... rdIWKytq_q4

    RIP Robin Williams

    Can't believe another comedy great is gone. I grew up watching him on TV as Mork from Ork and it's so sad to see him gone and to realize we will never be blessed with his unique form of comedy ever again. So hard to understand how a person like him could not find anything worth living for...

    Please stop feeding the sharks at half moon caye

    Had a pretty nerve racking experience with two sharks on the wall at half moon caye, had to bash one repeatedly in the head with my camera rig to defend myself and drive it off. It's painfully obvious that someone is feeding the sharks there based on their behavior. Somebody is going to get hurt.

    Ears - over a long dive trip

    My wife has trouble with her ears, myself not so much, but over dive trips where you're diving multiple times a day every day I am very conscious of avoiding any trauma, being careful on equalizing... however, it still seems, and maybe it's as I'm getting older that my ears are bothering me more...

    Just a few days left to fly out to TIR for a well deserved week of diving and vegging out. Anything I should know, pack, expect, tips to know? I plan on packing my collapsible pocket fisherman rod to play around with since this is a huge salt water fly fishing place. Other than that...

    Air Canada, are Canadians brain washed?

    All I've ever heard from Canadians is how great Air Canada is. We booked a trip to Europe on them and let me tell you, it wasn't pretty. What gives? What exactly is so great about them? Horrible leg room, nasty seats, no entertainment system in the seat backs, they make you rent an Ipod for $10...

    Turneffe island resort question sat-sat or wed-wed

    Trying to get a handle on the different stays they offer. It's either sat to sat or wed to wed. The wed option gives us a big air fare break. Is there any difference to the experience of going there and doing diving on a wed to wed schedule versus the sat to sat? I'm speculating that the...

    Deep diving advice that goes against conventional thought?

    I read this somewhere else and just don't understand it. This is written by someone with supposedly at least 1000 or more deep dives under their belt, everything written sounds like advice that would kill you, but if the poster is for real and this is what they do, they obviously aren't dead...
