If you want instant gratification, how about bungee jumping?...

PADI seems to have the cart in front of the horse. Allowing instant gratification consumer hedonists to dumb down diver training standards is irresponsible--CDNN is right about that.  What makes scuba diving cool is that it demands so much more from people than bungee jumping or snow boarding. One would think PADI (and the other diver certification agencies) could understand that. But obviously they don't.  PADI underwater ping pong specialty course anyone?
