UK

I spent a great deal of time with tech divers from the UK. They are almost like us. But, they are very different.

Diving there is very popular and they are mainstream on CCR (closed circuit rebreathers). We are just starting to see adoption of CCRs since the Brits have worked out the bugs and now one is much less likely to die on the thing.

Funny thing, they have lousy diving conditions there and poor visibility.

Another thing, they poke fun at Americans a lot. I suppose they can since they've been around since 1066. Still the cultural superiority feeling is common among southerners since we have historically been the brunt of jokes. We are treated like the Polish of the US.

Remember, bbq is a noun, not a verb.

Yeah, we like to poke fun at the Yanks a lot - and a few of us actually seem to mean it!

I think bbq is bi. It can go both ways for sure.

I think you should do some searching on where the letters originated. Probably the UK.
