WAY better".

g. Tell your instructor there is no way you can lift a cylinder with
2000 pounds of air in it.

VIOLATION'?"

HOW TO TELL IF YOU NEED TO PRACTICE BETTER BOUYANCY CONTROL:

line at the end of the dive.

difficult to walk on the bottom.

logged three.

with your buddy.

c. He fills out a dive log entry for every pool session.
d. He is a victim in your rescue course, and he isn't playing.
e. His new dive computer is a Palm Pilot.
f. You ask him about nitrox and he says he doesn't watch wrestling.
g. If you get hiccups underwater he tells you to hold your breath.
h. He tells you not to worry about your gauges, "YOU'LL KNOW WHEN
YOU'RE OUT OF AIR!!"
i. He tells you to wear gloves so that the coral won't cut you as
you drag yourself over the reef.
j. He tells you to use all your air underwater - "waste not - want
not".


HOW TO TELL WHEN YOUR DIVE BUDDY ISN'T YOUR DIVE BUDDY ANYMORE:

a. He gives you the "wait here" sign and you are still on the boat.
b. He "forgets" to close your dry suit zipper.
c. When you give him the out of air signal, he passes you his
snorkel.
d. When you indicate you are low on air, he writes on his
slate "I'll get you some" and swims off.
e. You give him the "OK" signal and he gives you the finger.
f. He spits in your mask for you, but you haven't taken it off yet.


HOW TO TELL IF YOUR DIVE BUDDY IS EXPERIENCED:

b. He offers to carry everyone's gear to the boat.
c. He thinks BC is a comic strip about cavemen.
d. He's upset when you tell him his dive computer doesn't run
windows '98

f. He argues that NITROX was a monster who battles Godzilla.
g. He says "Oh, I just wait 'til I get that "tingling feeling", then
I know it's time to surface".
