Does that mean that you could live off of 1 f^3 for one minute? Because otherwise that doesn't sound right. One breath is about half a f^3. I remember we did an experiment in 9th grade biology (many years ago), but I don't have any of my notes. >>This is from my dim memories of a scuba class that I >>took some time ago, so don't bet your life on it. > >Um... Wasn't that nearly a month ago? Yeah, it was. I brought up the original question, but I havn't had a chance to call yet (or game, for that matter), do to my quest for a job. -- Static | --==<< http://k2.CWRU.edu/~static (Stories and Games) >>==-- on the | silicon | "Only the good die young, web. | the bad prefer it that way..."
