    I remember reading a piece in playboy about the " James Bond " movies... The person tells a story of getting a call from the navy/seals about the device used in the movie...

    Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan are wusses. Chuck Norris can split water into hydrogen and oxygen with his bare hands.

    If you are going to bring up Chuck Norris, then he has other options too such as splitting the sea and walking on the bottom or holding his breath for a few hours.

    ...but James Bond still needs a gadget :)

    *someone* is either playing a long REALLY well, or doesn't get that this thing doesn't exist... And really guys, this is the 21st century, the era of bioengineering and gene therapy, think less "bond" and more "water world"

    How about a hybrid: we breathe liquid and have biomechanical iGills that suck O2 out of the water and into that liquid. And vent CO2 really really well while they're at it.

    Ah yes, the Abyss pink fluid technology. The answer to complicated problems is usually "a little bit of each"

    Heh, forgot about that one. They really went with pink as in "immersion pulmonary edema", didn't they?
