    Haha nope
    I was born at a very young age, raised on a dirt & cow farm long before safety rules, survived many accidents, mistakes, dumb choices, and my extended midlife crises decades much healthier than I deserve.

    Very single, probably unfit for marriage. I've rolled vehicles with and without seat belts and strongly recommend them, as well as wearing flotation vests on small moving boats. I may be the only one you'll see wearing a vest on a dive boat; it's okay - laugh.

    Yeah, Carbon Monoxide is a pet issue with me, in tanks, homes, vehicles, hotels, etc. Hell, it's only the air we breath, totally undetectable without special electronics, and a more complicated risk at depth. I wish that Operators cared, but since most don't - I test all tanks.

    Signature

    You can test the tanks you breathe or - dive on hope. [​IMG]
    Testing is safer...


    Yeah it's just the air we breath - at depth!
