This week we wrap up our three part series on how the scuba community nearly became yet another bureaucratic tax driven revenue system controlled by our "lords and masters" at city hall in Los Angeles during the mid 1970's. Thankfully divers united and fought against the tyranny and achieved a small victory for our freedom. We need to continue our vigilance through education and awareness and listening to The Great Dive Podcast!!

As divers, we've all been taught that here in the US, Scuba is a "self regulated" sport and the government does not really oversee how we train and dive in the recreational side of our beloved activity. But it wasn't always this way... in fact, it was a close call in 1975 when big government wanted to get their greedy hands in the pockets of divers and save us all from ourselves. Thankfully, a few of our wise predecessors fought to keep the government out. It wasn't easy but we enjoy these freedoms now because of their fight and their sacrifices. If we're not careful we could easily lose these freedoms we enjoy. Those who don't learn about history are doomed to repeat it... so keep yourself from being doomed and have a listen to this week's episode!

So, take your Xanax and listen to this “Prescription for the Planet.”

There comes a time in every divers life that they'll confront at least one of these 7 types of inconsiderate diver behavior and sometimes civil discourse is just unable to get the message across. Join Ol' Jamesy and even Ol' -der Brando as they throw their "PG" ratings out the proverbial porthole and discuss an article that details how to express disapproval of rude and/or inconsiderate diver's behaviors. Warning: Language may not be suitable for children. Subject matter contains references to roofies, Bill Cosby, breaking kneecaps, and other nonsense that may be found offensive by the easily offended.
