have you ever been scuba diving. you have to be nuts to do this. when you are high up, they tell you not to look down.
it's the opposite when you scuba dive. you look up and you realize how deep you are. then there's the pressure, which splits your ears with a pain
that feels like a metal ice pick is being jabbed in your brain.
then the gasping for air, because the feeling is so unnatural that you feel like you're drowning.
then the fact that if for any reason, if your regulator malfunctions or gets knocked out of your mouth, you could only hold your breath for a
maximum of 3 seconds because of the pressure and you'll automatically gasp and swallow a complete lung full of water.
literally your dive partner has to be like a maximum of 6 or 7 feet away to get you help in time. and that's even if he notices you're in trouble.
any farther away from that and you're pretty much dead.
sky diving is much safer.
