"I took drownproofing at the University of Georgia in about 1973. I don't remember it being that difficult. Must be those engineers require stricter standards." - lindytoes


When I took scuba diving in High School, George Krassle, the instructor had us breath through a broken hose. He'd swim up behind you and cut your air hose in two and then you had to grab the broken end of the hose and breath the stream of bubbles pouring out the other end. George was hard core!

By the way I just looked up Aquanaut Diving and Engineering Company in Atlanta, Georgia and they are still in business! I wonder if old George is still alive? I was seventeen years old when I took that course so it was like 43 years ago? I'm guessing George would be close to 80 years old now? He was quite the character. Former Navy Diver.
