It is amazing how much one can accomplish if they stay off of the internets for two months.

Thank you to all of the forum members who asked me to come back.
It's nice.

P.S. I'll try to stay away from the contentious threads from now on.

Big hug???

Welcome Back.

PS - Since you left, there has been a bit of a confusion amongst many of the male members.

We now have a Tina and a Marcy. They lurk in the Men's Forums and have large adams apples and some prickly facial hair.

I'm told that they don't shave their legs either - eeewwww

You may want to double-check before you invite anyone for an initimate dive.

Unless you are open minded.

Largo has landed. Thanks for coming back... keep an eye open for the non-stop avatar changes... some themed (hard to keep up with) others just changed for the heck of it... and some people were even using your old one :) lol.

I wish I could hire you, but... due to the economic downturn, I've had to lay-off almost 30% of my goons.

It's sad, looking around the Disco Volante, with its empty decks, and all of the Momsen Lungs and spearguns lying around, unused.

Spectre common stock is going for $5 a share, so... now is a good time to invest.

Welcome back Largo. Yeah, after you left a bunch of us used your avatar as a rememberance. It was kinda confusing seeing "Largo" posting so many times under different names.

I'm suprised you didn't use Domino for your new look!

NavyHMC, or anyone who knows the answer to this three-part question;

Background: I was watching the movie "The Deep" the other day, and the Scottish guy used an M60 fuse ignitor to light a fuse underwater.

Question 1: Would an M60 fuse ignitor work underwater?

Question 2: How could a guy like Nick Nolte hook up with a woman like Jacqueline Bisset?

Question 3: Does the plot of "Into the Blue" seem suspiciously similar to that of "The Deep?"

navyhmc
02-11-2009, 17:21
1. Yes and no...There is an adapter to make it work under water-the key is the end of the fuse has to be dry when it's activated.

2. One word: Money!!!! Lots and lots of Money. That or he may have been considered hot back then.

3. Suspiciously similar...How about damned near identical. Hot babe, questionable guy, treasure ship right next to drug shipment-sounds alike to me. All they did was change ship of morphine for a plane of Coke, trade a big old nasty moray for Tiger shark and one explosion for the other.

At least they both have hot women for the day. Though I think Jessica has the nicer butt.

Largo
02-11-2009, 17:30
Well, I guess one question leads to another, and so on...

1. The Scot hooked up the fuse ignitor to some kind of fuse on the surface, but ignited it underwater. Is it waterproof? The depth seemed like maybe 50 - 70 feet.

2. Were handle-bar moustaches OK with the gals back in the 70s?

3. I agree, Jessica Alba is much more curvy and therefore I find her more attractive than Jacqueline Bisset. Does that make me a bad person?

Largo
02-11-2009, 17:32
I wonder, if when Richard Gere watched Lou Gossett Jr. being eaten by a green moray, if he thought, "That guy's going to make me do a thousand sit-ups some day."

1. The fuse itself is waterproof and would work at depths up to about 100'(+) The trick is keeping the end of the fuse that is to be ignited dry. I am not UDT by any stretch of my imagination, but real world they usuallt do indeed ignite on the surface to eliminate the not lighting risk. But with the right protection, they will work if activated underwater.

2. Don't know about the mustache...I couldn't grow one back then.

as for #3: Hellllooo!....You're LARGO!!! You're a bad person!!!!!:smilie39::smilie39::smilie39:

It's not that I'm a bad person, it's just all of this stress.

I've had a run of bad luck at the Baccarat table. (I don't really understand the rules).

No one sells Kina Lillet anymore.

Fiona Volpe is all over me about reminding her when I have sharks in the pool.

There's this British chain-smoker who's hitting on my 'niece' Domino.

Let's see, what else...Oh God, the labor union! You would not believe how much workers' comp. insurance costs me.

You know, I'm constantly amazed at how many people don't know that Into the Blue and The Deep are the same story. It's not a rip off of a story, but the same one set for modern times.

And yes, Jesissica has a much nicer butt!

Thanks Barbados!

I've noticed that a lot of the people I know from Michigan are Scuba divers. Is it because you guys like to take vacations down south, or because the Great Lakes are there, or some of both?

navyhmc
02-13-2009, 17:36
Both! The Lakes may be cold, but there is some great diving to be had there as well!

I find that Michigan scuba divers are very similar to dog breeders.

Ahem.

In the sporting group - there are several breeds that have 2 completely different "looks" based on whether the dog is "bench bred" or "field bred"

Bench bred - a dog bred for the show ring. Makes great pets, does agility, obedience and are therapy dogs.

Field bred - a dog bred specifically to hunt and only to hunt.

Springers, Labs, Goldens, Irish/English/Gordon setters are some of the breeds that can look and act completely different depending on whether you are breeding the dog to hunt (a purist) or breeding the dog to promote the original breed standard (a purist).

For the most part - the two groups do not see eye to eye. To say there is behind the hand criticism is putting it mildly.

So, how does this explain my analogy? Well,

In the Michigan diving community - you have those that only dive wrecks, those that only dive quarries, those that only dive warm water (meaning travel divers)

AND NONE OF THEM THINK THE OTHER DIVING SECTS ARE SANE.

A wreck diver thinks the quarry divers are insane and the quarry divers think the www divers are uptight and the www divers think that the wreck divers are snobby.... :smiley3:

egad.

But, for all my Michigan pals - I love you guys!

all in fun!

What about divers from Wisconsin?

That I don't know. I don't know any Wisconsin divers well enough to know if they hold judgement over other divers.

:smilie40:

I always wonder how much weight Winsconsin divers need to accomodate those giant bouyant cheese wheels they wear on their heads.

Largo

A great set-up gone to waste. :(

Actually, Wisconsin is a beautiful state. Madison, especially.

It's just so dang cold. I was there in August 98, and I had to scrape the ice off of my windshield.

You were looking at a setup to the COLD? Come on Largo - this is a Meechigan girl you are talking to.

On April 24 in 2005 we had a snow storm so bad it gridlocked the city. Several inches of accumulation.

In August at our cottage on the lake in Alpena the daytime weather would be 94 deg with 80 percent humidity and 32 degrees overnight.


You need to get MM2002 or Splitlip or someone from Florida involved in you want to whine about cold temps.

Myself, I thought the cheesehead reference was good.

gNats: I'll have you know that when I dive in cheddar land, I take my cheese head off first. Unlike wine, cheese and water do not mix...Meecheeganer's I swear!:smilie39:

Actually, when I have dove the Wisconson side of the lakes, I haven't really noticed any rifts. Of course, there aren't that many divable quarries in WI so it's not a big problem. I will admit by the time I started diving, I was more a visitor than a resident cheddarhead. With the exception of some of the Chicago divers that inundate Devils Lake, all have been very inviting and friendly. Maybe the problem is all the lake effect snow in Michigan?
