    I had a snorkel much like this “Superman” snorkel as a kid of about 12 years old. I was snorkeling, but not yet scuba diving. I took it to Camp Silver Creek in the Cascade Mountains out of Salem, Oregon, and used it in the camp’s pond. It was a terrible snorkel. The mouthpiece hurt my gums. The ping pong ball allowed it to flood, and it could not be cleared. So I ended up cutting the long tube to get rid of the ping pong ball stuff with my pocket knife (you have to cut around it a lot to get it through the plastic).

    Now, if I had saved it intact, I could sell it on E-Bay for $1200? Probably not, as the box was discarded very quickly. :wink:

    What do we want? Time travel! When do we want it? Irrelevant!
