HAVE YOU EVER LIED IN DIVING?

Post Number:#1  Postby Narco » Thu May 17, 2012 4:37 pm

Folks,

When we go for a dive, normally we are required to fill in the release form and several other stuff. Have you ever lied?

When we took our courses even from OWD way up to whatever instructor level some of us might have been conffered with, we are also required to fill forms of declaration. Have we ever lied?

When we missed a dive due to our own stupidity (ie. fail to board a plane during a dive trip in another country simply because we forgot to renew the passport or purposely do not renew the passport for a reason). Have we ever lied?

Well, share your stories,, but don't lie ah! Hehehe

I always...always lie when the DM ask me how much air I have left..... My standard hand signal lie is 70 bar when I actually have only 40 bar or less....... Takkan 50 bar dah nak naik??? So many nudis waiting for me to take their pictures.....


But I do know my limits..... so don't worry.....

I know someone with a heart problem lying that he's as healthy as a bull upon registering for open water.

miracles can happen. You have a heart problem doesn't mean that you'll sure be dead in the ocean. Just the possibility to die with a heart failure during a dive is >50% chance.

I lied when my wife found out i bought a new equipment for diving.

Wife asked "This Jacket (BCD) how much??" . Me "ohhh.. 2nd hand bought (but actually not) RM500 saja (actually its 2k+), see so new, worth it rite? "

Wife asked "This trip to Layang2 how much??" . Me "I not sure , i think less than 2k only, within Malaysia how much can it cost (throwing away the map) "
