    indie, do I come to your diaries
    and argue with you? No, I do not.
    So you don't want a discussion ? You want your diary to be unchallenged and taken as the truth ?
    You are not an expert. I know what I'm saying.
    Care to put money on that ? Are you willing to put money where your mouth is ?
    When one is drowning the only reality is getting back up to the surface and out of the water!
    Do you scuba dive ? Do you free dive ? Have you ever been to / seen / been around a decompression chamber ?
    Have you ever saved a person from drowning ?

    Forget that psychological stuff. I'm talking about not drowning.
    Forget that "psychological stuff" ? Panic kills . Panic is that "psychological stuff". Clear thinking sans panic is what is safe and sane . Irrational fear , fear that is unnecessary , fear that endangers , fear that is a killer , is something to avoid . People who put irrational fears into others , need pushing back on .

    You'll sink like a stone!

    I've owned boats , I own a boat now .
    I've owned surfboards , I own surfboards now .
    I've owned scuba gear , I own scuba gear now .
    I have surfed , dived and sailed for many many years .
    I've been trained and had decades of experience in and around water .
