    Good job by author. Quite a few are humorous.

    Thanks!

    Great link. I still think a bunch of these gems should be centrally located for new members.

    Cutis Marmorata - okay, I admit, I was thinking this was a nudibranch I hadn't heard of

    Instead found this good example: www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm0909444
    Cheers, TD.

    Thanks for post; I hadn't seen a photo of that condition.

    A strange hobby we have!

    One thing that struck me was under AOW it said " A PADI certification" What PADI is the only agency that has AOW? My SSI AOW cert is worthless?
