    Looks like you don't want a GF 70 either... I find it more interesting that the model seems to fail on the "medium" tissue compartments. Assuming the fast ones are saturated and slow ones aren't, it would seem the algorithm becomes wonky near the saturation point. Which isn't exactly unusual, generally speaking.

    Or old (like me in both cases). Only thing worse would be if I were a female.

    Good thing from my perspective is that the test cases were all European. Whew! Thank goodness I'm an American.

    I was worried that I had to find a 95 year old girl friend!

    I'm not sure, but it seems you have to member of EU to be jeopardized. So, British should be safe in a year or two, Russians are safe(if hit, they would probably drink it out).

    By the models the chances of a bend are worse with higher GF. So it is likely that the reason there is a smaller percentage on > 90% bent as there were fewer diving those GFs. But you know that.

    My point is that high GF values, of the sort regarded as normal by some posters on SB, lead to bent divers according to this study.
