    I have to agree. I am currently working with patients who are forced to accept 4 smoke breaks a day. Believe me they are all jone-zing big time till that next cigarette. They have Dr's orders for nicorette gum every two hours and most of them don't miss that opportunity.

    Back on track. Since you guys did a thorough search what is your theory on Ben?
    Is the cave that straightforward that there is no where for him to "hide?"

    I know these questions are late in the game...but I have been busy at my new job with substance abuse addicts/PTSD war survivors and the mentally ill!

    Thanks in advance Mat/Kevin.

    You started it with your bragging about spanking!

    Why should they? I don't think anyone was forced to offer their assistance at the beginning of this thing. They were helping in a situation that is of their expertise.
    Not to mention the ongoing intrigue, and banter this incident has generated.

    I have been tempted to enter the piano room myself...now I fear the cave god will strike me with deadly lightening if I proceed. I have watched all the videos posted with shock and awe.

    It must have been a hell of a spanking, you seem to be talking to yourself!

    How many divers that smoked have died - or been injured - by embolism? I don't know, but I'll bet even money that many of the survivors "never held my breath."
    I don't know if any studies have been done to see if there's any statistical correlation between smoking and diving lung injury compared to the non-smoking diving population... I imagine the stats are so sparse that they fall into the "statistically insignificant" pile, as do nearly all diving injuries. But I stick by my point: Diving is another good reason to quit smoking.
    :)
