    Yes, banking is regulated -- especially mortgage lending. No crazy mortgage fraud like what the USA went through. Back to fish sharks...I tell wifey that the attacks she hears of are at the same odds as a plane crash. Just bad luck, unless it's a known infested area.

    Shark attacks are very rare, it's a base fear of humans of being eaten by something so it gets a lot of play when it does happen or even if someone suffers a bump by one, dying in a plane crash isn't something one wants to happen but it doesn't trigger the same base fear in most people, surfers are at a much higher risk of shark attack.

    Its riskier driving to a dive site than it is diving.

    I like not having the bulk, what I need is a sherpa to lug all of this stuff, I'm sure PADI could come up with a specialty cert for it, "dive caddy" or something

    Well, if you were a US resident, you would be more than 20 times more likely to be killed by a COW than by a shark. Yes, a cow. And I'm not talking about heart disease after too many delicious hamburgers... I'm talking about vicious rampaging cows, thirsting for blood. I'm not sure what the cow rampage rate in Canada is, but at least that's how it stacks up in the US. (Not kidding)

    While the thought of being something's meal is really unpleasant, it really isn't that likely.

    Re: The Ultimate Dive Watch Used While Diving Photo Thread

    Guys, most every underwater picture I ever took was terrible. There was never enough light and frequently there was too much back scattter for flash to work well. All my pics were taken with 35mm slide film. These pics are scans of prints made from slides and all were above the surface. Beneath the surface was a small plane I and my buddies were attempting to photograph. The watch I was wearing was a Nivada Grenchen. Here's a pick of the exact watch model I was using though this is not my watch or my picture:



    Before the dive:



    The hole:





    After the dive:



    I was diving with the Poseidon UniSuit and a ScubaPro MkVI regulator with octopus.

    That's crazy diving
    Digital has made UW photography much easier, one of the big advantages to MWB shooting is the back scatter issue,
    in this pic of a tiny halibut there was a bunch of sand and other bottom debris kicked up

    It still isn't a great photo but at least you can see a healthy 1.5" long fish, flash wouldn't have worked.

    I guess I was born in the wrong era. That and the fact I never spent much on camera gear. I wish I had made the investment because many of the Great Lakes wrecks I dove were breathtaking to see. I still have a slide of a picture I took at 150' up the mast of the wreck of the Emperor in Lake Superior, toward the surface. I remember if I held the slide up to a light bulb, it was a pretty neat picture. I'll have to see if I can get that slide digitized.
