    Very helpful for us who learned to dive in non english speaking countries and from non PADI world.
    And some pretty good jokes as well :)

    when you pee in your wetsuit it helps if you are in the water!

    Actually, if you stick a proper (size/flexibility) hose down one leg, it works better on land. When diving it takes longer for the pee to flow out through water rather than air. Shall I go on, or is that enough information here?

    I'm new to diving, but am an old hand at crafting acronyms.

    My contribution is SPP* for wetsuit.

    Also, for teaching navigation and making ppl remember North East South West: Naughty Elephants Squirt Water. I thaught that was very naughty. English isn't my first language. So I used Never Eat Soggy Wheat, until I understood Squirting means blowing water out of their trunks...

    That is very naughty, too. And this is very questionable:

    That's why it's just mnemonics... Read your students and you'll know what they will remember the longest.
