    Not a DM skill as such, but part of the kit exchange / stress test, depending on the instructor's criteria. I had three DM scholars a few years ago who wanted to do a stress test with all three of them. Hilarious to watch, but fair play they did it, including three way buddy breathing!

    Love Alec.Love his videos. Is somebody going to take them wrong or disagree with him? Of course! This is the internet. Just don`t bash him because you disagree. He`s been in the business longer than most of you have been alive.

    Maybe you don’t, but I definitely wish I was decent at getting things right :)

    We all do but I think him starting out saying a long hose is only good in certain limited situations is flat out wrong if that is his opinion fine say in my opinion but to tell new divers that as a statement of fact when you are someone they look up to is just wrong.

    I really have and want to continue to like the guy, but....

    perpetuating urban legends, half truths, and personal opinions from a position of "authority".....

    Everyone knows that on the Internet every statement is to be implicitly prefaced by "In my opinion,..." It doesn't need to be said explicitly in every sentence. That is, in my opinion. :)
