    We're talking visibility buddy, not numbers of shark teeth.

    I think there would have to be categories which would allow everyone to excel in their niche. In Trivial Pursuit, you've got Arts and Entertainment and Science and Technology which can even out the playing field.

    At what altitude/Nitrox% combinations do the theoretical depth effects cancel?

    Naw, it was during Invade Fort Lauderdale when I forgot to put on sunscreen. No burn in this thread.

    Let's go fossil diving (leading w/my chin) soon.

    Because the question wasn't who invented SCUBA, but who invented the Aqualung. Actually, if the question were SCUBA, Ohgushi still wouldn't be the correct answer. James beat him by almost a century.

    1825
    Englishman William H. James designs a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba). In this design, the diver wears a helmet and carries a supply of compressed air in a cast-iron belt fastened around the waist. According to James, the diver can stay underwater for as long as an hour using this outfit.

    A diver is in a boat in the middle of a fresh water lake.
    He empties the beer cooler which contained 100lbs of ice cubes into the water.
    The ice cubes float around for a while and then melt.
    What happens to the level of the lake with respect to the shoreline?
    a) No change at any moment.
    b) Drops then rises.
    c) Rises then drops.

    And on a similar theme
    A diver is in a boat in the middle of a fresh water lake.
    He throws a 40lb steel anchor into the water.
    What happens to the level of the lake with respect to the shoreline?
    a) No change.
    b) Drops.
    c) Rises.
