Scuba diving is only worth it if you're doing it around the great barrier reef, i saw an octopus whilst doing it.

erm.. red sea.. off africa.. south america.. the med.. all have reefs n octopi, also the great barrier reef isnt reli that great for scuba, its rather shallow, u cud do it with a snorkel n fins really.. n also, off britain, we have whales, sharks n a couple of dolphins, i dive in ex-quaries n there are plenty of fish in them..

I did that mostly, i'm glad it wasn't deep, i can't swim well so to go down too far would have scared me.

You're supposed to look at the fish, not gut them.

It cost me USD100 to dive but we bargained it to 85 for 4 people in my family. I borrowed some stuff for free, but most of it was my mum's old kit... including the knife

I'm weak and pathetic, so the knife was used as a mirror
RAWR.. made me feel powerful for once.

Edit: And hello ex-Mr. Clumsy. Your monkey is cute, but can't compare.
