    Lightbulb In the old days?

    When I was young and just starting, I kept my mouth shut and learned from my elders. Now that we have the internet and forums, maybe the explorers should read and learn instead of instant posting. Look at the mag fire thread in the firefighters forum. Too much junk.

    I get tired of reading thru a lot of junk to get some good opinions and expertise.

    Stay safe,

    so read only what you are interested in and skip the rest. If there's nothing interesting here then look elsewhere. I read and post in the forums at Atheist Network, QRZ, Consumption Junction and Grim City to name a few. This isn't the only game in town.

    I, for one, happen to agree with Pete. Seems to be a lot of the 3 months on the job with 25 years of experience going on around here lately.

    Hm..Let's see...
    Concerning our missing diver earlier this month 42VT posted this nugget:

    "Neither. It was a recreational dive. Though, my question is why would you want to go diving without a safety line especially in those conditions? May be a pain in the butt, but it could have prevented this. I hope he's alright, but time's ran out if he was stuck under."

    Yup, 42VT, shutting your trap and learning would be a better idea then posting this kind of speculatory crap when you NOTHING about what you are talking about, especially from a hundred miles away.

    Don't tell me, you spelled "Gotta" wrong?

    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.

    No, isn't that the correct Canadian way of spelling "forms"? They stole all the extra u's that noone wanted.
