    Bacon is pretty effective at expanding my a....oh, you said "horizons." NM. Enjoy the air show and don't make the news.

    I'm with Lee. An unbroken line to the surface for me. Always. always. ALWAYS.

    Where does the 95% figure come from? I'm always curious when folks use specific numbers instead of "lots" or "most" because it implies, to me anyway, that there are some actual statistics behind the number. ...curious...

    87.3% of all statistical references are made up on the spot.

    I cant remember the last time i saw any jump reels in there and i see people going through there all the time. Most people would consider that to be a "low risk" visual jump because you have gold line on both sides and the silt potential in there isnt very high. I dive LR at least 3X a month and have seen it with almost every team i see go in swimming

    90.2% of statistics with a number behind the decimal point seem more credible to the majority..

    That scares 86% of the sh-t out of my colon. The other 14% comes out when I reread this several times and come to the conclusion that it seems you're ok with it (though that's simple interpretation).
