    LOL! You are right. Your post is ridiculous.

    Who said anything about waving poles around or digging up the reef? Certainly not me.

    Pointing the laser at fish eyes? Maybe the fish swim into the laser beam? Just how do you point out a fish to your buddy and not point the laser at the fish? Are you so sure you can get the fish to stop moving so you can keep the laser on his side and not inadvertently hit his eye?

    Also, put a pointer near a fish and most will quickly move away. But the direction of the pointer shows where to look. But with a laser, you have to see the spot to know where to look.

    I’m not sure about you but I’d point the laser in the fish’s general direction. Fair enough about the pointer. Pointers DO encourage harm to the physical environment, they allow people to poke things without consequence. Lasers keep the diver away.
