    But what are the chances of it happening, if you read my post you would have seen I said go play on the beach for 70 minutes, he could get hit by a meteor while laying on the beach would you plan that into a dive.

    You are stretching.
    I did not say I believed it; I said it was the point of the post you seemed to misunderstand.
    On the other hand, you go take the chance, not me.

    Suppose it happens to the OP and he points the finger at you as his source.

    You have no idea if he's going to stick to his plan or execute correctly.

    Good luck with that.

    I didn’t tell him what to do, if you read my post I said (me) that was a dive plan for me, the OP has to plan his own dive no one can do it for him

    Ok but I because I had the impression you were posting it was fine to "play" on the beach during the SI. Then when the downside was explained to you it seemed like you were insisting the chances were slight after the 1st of OP dives..

    I'm sorry I must have gotten mixed up

    The first dive was 25 minutes at 50 feet. The chances of getting bent after that dive for me is zero but that’s just my opinion I’ve no experience of seeing someone bent from the effects of residual nitrogen through post dive exercises with that profile.if others have then I will take their word for it.
