    I heard PadI was going to change their Self-Reliant pseudo-solo diver cert name, due to the new post Wuhan virus norm, and call it the Socially Distanced Diver certification. Then it would be accepted everywhere in the world, no questions asked.

    I knew there was a reason I did not like having buddies and preferred solo and now after all these years I finally realized why, because nearly everybody it seems is freaking crazy. Vindicated.

    I have also learned that hand sanitizer is not a very effective defog, just in case you solo divers need to know that. Do you wear your face covering over your mask or under it, oh, well, there again, I am solo so I can dispense with the nonsense. I guess---?

    You know, even more so, safety, it is way overrated.

    PADI is also changing their buddy diving rules:

    - one should always maintain a minimum of 2m or 6ft safety distance

    *nothing changes*
