Decompression Sickness: "Diving Without Water"

In postscript to yesterday's plug for the Divers Alert Network (DAN) webinar, we ran across a delightful item in the Phuket Gazette. (Let's be careful with that pronunciation.) It's a refreshingly different answer to the question, What's it like to take a dive in a hyperbaric chamber? Hats off to Isaac Stone Simonelli for this charming slice of life. Bonus: Another keen photo of the "Steel Ball Hospital" or "Hyperbaric Hotel" built in 1928 in Cleveland, Ohio, and scrapped for metal in World War II.
