...to those who have longed for a unique underwater demise AND have a Do-It-Yourself streak, I submit the following for your edification:

I like the homemade helmut. "get a cookie tin from your grocer" um yeah ok. "if you don't dive too deep you are in no particular danger".
<DIV>I would love to see some of this home made stuff.</DIV>
<DIV>Thanks for the laugh PlatypusMan.</DIV>

HeeHee...next up: playing with the underwater sea life you encounter while using your home-made helmet to penetrate a sunken wreck!

Wow. I'm speechless.

I want that submarine :(

I had dreams of building a sub like that, but I chickened out when I wondered what would happen to me if the batteries died and I couldn't get back to the surface.
<DIV>I've always wanted my own sub though, but I'm too chicken to actually build one. I do have the tools and access to the metal as described in the article, but I'm still thinking clearly and wouldn't dream of doing this.</DIV>
<DIV>Maybe if I get narc'd some day...</DIV>

It's a wonder any of us were born.

Call me a crackpot, but I wouldn't be able to help giggling hysterically if the homeboy who put the grocery store cookie pot on his head then accidentally couldn't get it back off because it stuck...

(Yes, I understand the dangers of this happening, but just imagine all the danger away, and imagine two or three people trying to pull this tin off the dude's head)

Kind of like Dumb & Dumber, where Harry's sitting there with his tongue stuck on the lift bar. The man would sit on the beach, with the helmet stuck. Then little kids would go up and bang on it loudly--clang clang clang...

Perhaps it's bedtime.
