    more scuba, less war…


    Where's my 400ft squad even though it's not that deep but still is pretty deep I am just going to shut up

  5. johnnyst3in says

    some times its good to get a refresher of these simple facts even though a person like me who is a PADI divemaster has knowledge of this stuff lol

  6. Peter Ferreira says

    Basic facts and good for beginners! Good video overall.

  9. urgedmoon says

    I must say that I'm a huge The Office fan but this is the first time that I see the scene Creed talking about scuba ! huh !

  10. Joseph Smith says

    20 meter club, for over 5 years now!!!!!!!

  11. Garwanen says

    oxygen becomes toxic in 20 ft/6 m, oxygen and nitrogen in Air becomes narcotic in 100 ft/30 m. Get facts correct!

  12. John Schweizer says

    Just as another commented that scuba tanks contain air not oxygen, the wetsuit is not full of "nitogen bubbles". It's just full of air, which is approximately 21% oxygen, 70% nitrogen and other inert gasses. Also, the oxygen level (in the air from the tank) does not become toxic at 100'; You're confusing nitrogen narcosis (which gradually increases with depth but is definitely noticeable as the diver aproaches 100'. But to say a diver will act "drunk" whenever he exceeds 100' is simply silly. However the oxygen level gets concentrated to a toxic level when the diver approaches 200' and can lead to black-outs, thus the need to displace some of the oxygen by introducing other gasses into the air mixture.

  13. Steven Henderson says

    we call it the 100ft club 😉 and yesh I'm a member. btw oxygen becomes toxic way deeper then 30m it's the nitrogen you breath that turns narcotic, ergo nitrogen narcosis. and trimix replaces the nitrogen with helium.

  14. Neil Luchene says

    trimix at 100 feet funny. 32 % nitrox works pretty good.

  15. BACON BREAD says

    Please make a video on the evolution of diving suits

  16. Justincredible Mickle says

    scuba divers just get wet…commercial divers hit bottow

  17. David Key says

    There's a mistake at 3:25 when referring nitrogen narcosis; Oxygen doesn't begin to become toxic at 100 feet. I think he ment to say NITROGEN begins to be come NARCOTIC at 100 feet. The toxic depth of nitrogen is much deeper than 100 feet. Air or 21% Oxygen becomes toxic at 270ft or so. 100% Oxygen begins to become toxic at 25 feet or so. Your results may vary.

  18. FrenchieGoOn says

    also its not know to be toxic

  19. FrenchieGoOn says

    its not called nitrogen narcosis anymore :)

  20. FilMobile says

    SCUBA diving is not as easy as it looks…

  21. Carlos Aguilar says

    poorly written… take a scuba course to learn the physics and physiology of diving.

  22. The Life of Adam says

    20m? pftt 40 meter club here!!

  23. John Evans says

    as a Master Scuba Diver Instructor for the past 23 years your information is very close but not completely correct.

  24. CaligulaBoots says

    I'm a divemaster, and just have to ask, the "20 meter club" is really a thing? It's so rudimentary that I can't see why people would keep track of that. 30 meters, 40 meters, sure, I guess, but 20? Anyone?

  25. kaeptenxy 356 says

    Yesterday i was diving down to 42,2m in Hemmoor Germany was pretty nice
