....Now that I have your attention :)
You may or may not have followed my thread about getting my two sons their first GShocks. So this weekend my oldest and I are going over how to set what on the 5600, no biggie he asked about the 200mm rating and told him your head would pop off before the G let you down so the swimming pool will be just fine not to worry because the G is far superior IMHO to the Ironman that I got him prior.
He gets that puzzled look on his face -
Little Brv 1: Dad, did you just say my head would pop off?
Me: Well, it would actually implode due to the pressure and your brain would then...son you have nothing to worry about just wear it
Little Brv: So when you say tough it can handle being scrapped against a concrete wall and survive?
Me: Yes son, your Gshock might have some character marks, but it would survive no problem...
Little Brv 1: What about if I dive in to the pool, go all the way down to the deepest part it is 11' and I banged it on the bottom on accident
Me: Sure thing, no problem it would just as happy when it got back to the surface
Little Brv 1: What about if I fell off my bike and smashed it on the road?
Me: Let me put it this way, you would be more hurt than the Gshock just wear it and enjoy
Little Brv 1: 5 Minutes later, so what if I got on the high dive and took it off and threw it as hard as I could at the water?
Me: Being as calm as I am - Listen, if you take it off, and throw it as hard as you can against the water it would survive, until it gets to the bottom and the drain sucks it up - then bye bye Gshock.
Little Brv 1:Could you take it to the top of Mount Everest and drop it, then watch it all the way down hitting every rock on the way - would it survive that?
So lets the start the fun filled debate....
So do you think that it would survive?? I do....if you could find the @#$# thing after hiking your happy @#[email protected] all the @#$#@ up to the top of @#%[email protected]#$% Mount @#[email protected]#$ Everest to test the @#[email protected]#$ theory so that you know the answer to the question next time....
Mrs Brv: I hope he actually goes and tries this stupid ass experiment and falls and bumps his head on EVERY @#$@#$ rock, the GShock might survive, but I am guessing he wont...that is what he gets for getting our two precious children started on these watches. Oh...just wait till I get some ideas around my revenge that I am plotting...oh just wait....
to be continued....
(Disclaimer, no one was actually hurt in the making of this story, the names and faces have been changed to protect the innocent...wait wrong disclaimer....anyways - the story is real I did get asked if it would survive the Everest fall)
