Does scuba/snorkel count as "outdoors?"

    I know that it technically takes place outdoors, but you can’t read about it in Field & Stream, and you can’t gear up for it at REI or Cabela’s. Scuba is actually one of my favorite pastimes, but does it need its own group?

      That sounds like “thin” outdoorism Richard.

    OH — before you scuba dive, and swallow the good stuff, check out what you’re swallowing: one sea water drop of water, x 25 magnified: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/04/a-single-drop-of-seawater-magnified-25-times/

     

    (spit, spit?)

      Give me the macro and micro-nutrient count of that slide and I’ll decide whether or not to spit.

      And as Homer said: “Water, water everywhere, so let’s all have a drink.”

    I wonder if this argument could be extended further. For example can a person that likes to fish be called a Hunter? They seem to be considered separate activities but both involve bringing an animal back home for dinner. I suppose to be a Hunter a Fisherman would need to use some sort of projectile launching device. Would this Hunter of fish always stalk their prey? Or would people start to setup a sort of underwater Deer-Stand. I can’t help but feel I would be more interested in hearing fishing stories if it was done this way.

      What you’re talking about… It’s apparently a real thing.

      I wonder if these folks bait and sprinkle themselves in shark pee too.

    Either way, the hunter/fisher is freeing the oppressed wildlife from the clutches of the state which claims to own it.

    Fascinating thought, nonetheless. We libertarians will debate, dissect, and put back together everything until it makes perfect sense, haha.
