Once again, this is based on my decaying brain cells, but I do
believe that at surface pressure, the cubic footage rating of
the air tank is approximately equal to the number of minutes
it takes to consume it.  Of course, at depth the tank is used
up more quickly.

So i'm running a little behind.  That reminds me, I'm late

The Phantom
phantom@????.????.???.edu

Pathetic Earthlings.  Hurling your bodies out into the void
without the slightest inkling of who or what is out here.  If
you had known anything about the true nature of the universe,
anything at all, you would have hidden from it in terror.
