    You're Right, but you arent exactly setting a good example with that statement are you? ;) Just dont acknowledge them.

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    another one here for starting siphons by mouth. the instructions always say to shake the siphon up and down rapidly to get it going but thats never worked for me, and i would imagine its hard to do without smacking into something. really unless youre not paying attention to what youre doing its hard to get water in your mouth starting a siphon by mouth

    When i use my smaller siphon i submerge it as much as i can and let the air bubbles rise out...then i put my thumb on the end, pull all but the end of the siphon out and down towards the bucket and take my thumb off. Works And no fish water in the mouth
