There was a television show back in the fourteenth century called "Sea Hunt," starring Lloyd Bridges (he the uberly nervous air traffic controller in the movie "Airplane,"..."I picked the wrong day to quit drinking") where the lead character named Mike Nelson (there's a name that couldn't offend anyone) spends the entire show underwater, searching for lost treasure, wading through seaweed over galleons of long sunken pirate ships. Once in a while a diving companion might run low on oxygen (her tanks' regulator minfunctioning) and Mike would have to share his air supply with the inevitable blonde bomshell (who seemingly already had magnificent lungs). He might also free a squirming dolphin from a bad guy fisherman's net...give Jacques Cousteau a diving lesson...spear a shark with a blowgun...and solve an international marine crisis.
In any case, by show's end, God would be in his heaven, the blonde would be very grateful, and Mike would be on dry land.
I sure hope Mike Rutherford breaches the surface soon. Gets back on dry land. Strides through the beach, his floppy finned footsteps leaving huge prints in the sand, as he stops to shake out his water soaked laptop. Soon he's on his tush, firing up his keyboard, as a picknicing family looks on astonished.
What will his first words be?
Hope everybody has a safe weekend.
