    Maybe a new "rule of thumb" could be: only type as long as you can hold your breath. That might give you a good window, unless you have amazing breath control!:lol:

    Brevity is the soul of wit (so I hear). BD, that's a good idea! That will help with your long tones and endurance! And if you are long winded, it will help your post count!! ROFLROFLROFL

    Do you have any idea how long Turtles can hold their breath - it would STILL be a very long post.

    Hahahahaha ...... That's so true Ted. I used to have a pet turtle and he would sometimes sleep UNDERWATER. :shock:

    The first time I saw that, I thought ... "Ohhh, that's sad. He didn't last very long ..." But, I lifted him out, he woke up and yawned at me. Turtles would make great wind players.

    So ..... now, there's no need to wait until you are practicing the trumpet to work on your breath control. PHew!!! There, got the whole post in one breath ....

    Yes, true indeed - check this graphic which shows that Leatherback Turtles can dive to 1,200 metres underwater, which would take some time I presume.

    Informative and funny .... That really puts the depths of lakes and oceans into perspective. Cool.

    Being a country boy, yes, I do. I hadn't thought that one through, had I?

    It seems to have happened since the last TM server attack... I thought they added this as protection or something.
