Over the course of several months, I have collected responses to surveys that have allowed me to form an opinion about the average scuba diver. Here is what I have discovered.

Truth is tho one can only fart down to 33 feet. Anything deeper than that its impossible! :)

I never considered this...I suppose its due to air compression.

Maybe for you.;)

I heard it on a radio show on the "Wierd Facts" part of the show

Do you think Whales have to come up to 30’?

I am no whale expert, but I am pretty sure whales have much larger intestines and other body parts that make it easier to "relieve pressure" deeper under water.

I just want Jessica Alba as a dive buddy!!! Hope she’s a 60 percenter lol!!!!
Greg - 7/24/2013 6:43 AM
Whats a 60 percenter?
McNair - 7/24/2013 8:12 AM
60% of divers diving naked. The stat reads confusing. 60% of diver HAVE dived naked. I also would hope she is in that 60% and on her 100th dive.
