    Down here Varon, I just jumped in. It's a bit cold. I fell in backwards because if I fall front on, I'll damage my good-looks. I might end up looking like you. Haa, ha.

    Bit hard (no pun intended) for a woman to "keep it up" Varon.

    we all like a good mental challenge
    varon

    Good to know that. Me too
    Because the weight of the tanks would hurt the back if you hit the water first.
    varon

    Nope, good try though
    So he doesn't rip his mask off.
    varon

    Nope. I will give you the answer in a minute
    They don't really have to do this. They can go in feet first, or just climb down the boat ladder. They fall backwards in movies, b/c there was a TV show on in the 50s, or 60s, called '' Sea Hunt," where Lloyd Bridges was a scuba diver and he always sat on the side of the boat and fell backwards into the water.
    varon

    This a very good logical answer, but when you read the answer later don't kill me, please

    Ok I am not eggplant and I dont get the joke but here is my answer.Given the weight of the oxygen tank on your back and the fact that it makes you top-heavy, it is simply the most efficient way of getting into the water from a small boat; standing on the edge and jumping off forwards would upset the craft's balance and you would not be able to keep your balance and would fall either forwards or backwards.

    Jenn, Daren got it right. But your explanation is good. I would give you a B+
    Is this a joke question or a serious one? I see the comment, "Eggplant, this is for you". I know she likes to post jokes. :)
    varon

    Yes Colleen, it is a joke, Too bad Eggplant didn't see it. She got me three times. Sorry

    Thanks again
    Who's eggplant???
    varon

    Eggplant is a member who always posts jokes

    because Lloyd Bridges did it on TV in a show called  '' Sea Hunt ''  in the 50s.. Then, the kids that watched that passed it on to their kids and on and on.   If you watch modern shows about scuba diving, They just hop off the side of the boat, feet first  , head up
