Please help finflippers, he is running out of good excuses to go diving. Like tonight his sinus were acting up and he told me he need to go diving to clear them...it is so sad:smiley19:. Please post your best excuses, I have heard all of his.

Ok I admit it I am addicted to scuba diving and will use any excuse that I can to get to go. I guess that I am just going to have to go for a dive to help me get over my addiction.

it's not diving, it's stress management class. That is what I tell them at work. I am going to China on business for week 1 and on week 2 I go diving on Bali :)

There are fish starving over at the dive hole, they need his help to fatten up before winter.

Sometimes the best way to conquer you addictions is to face them head on...First step to admit there is an addiction. Now he just has to continue to dive until he can no longer do it! Having an illness this serious should not be a game or a joke-his well being is at stake and if he needs to be underwater than so be it! Perhaps we should start a telethon or something for addicted divers.



Sorry-should I guess I should have skipped that 2nd pot of coffee this am.

His dive gear contains materials that must be kept soft and the best way to do that is to immerse the gear. It's only a matter of protecting his substantial investment. He will, of course, have to travel to a warmer locale periodically throughout the winter months to continue this most responsible practice.

If I spend too much time this high up I start to get the bends... I need to be back where the normal people hang out... 100' below sea level.

You mountain people with your 0' below sea level, freak me out.

He might explode if he's above water too much longer, he needs to get back down in the depths to keep the pressure equalized

So my o-rings dont dry out. To rinse out my bc. To use the air in my tank up before it goes bad.

(Don't know if this works in the high humidity South, but give it a try. Your wife might be gullible).

The air has dried my skin out so it's all dry and flaky. Since I'm out of lotion, maybe I should take a dip, with dive gear of course, to moisturize my delicate skin.

(There's only two things that work with women. Guilt and bribes. If this doesn't satisfy the guilt angle, try jewelry).

Good luck,

Compression helps avoid hernia?
Not a doctor and I didn't stay at Holiday Inn last night but it works for me.

Excuses..............who needs them? I have the time and the opportunity, I'm going diving. :smiley32: But if I had to pick one I would say because surface intervals suck, mkay.
