Top contender for Darwin Awards? Apnea diving.

What a strange culture we inhabit. A man who subjects his body to a very dangerous depletion of oxygen during a tank-free deep-sea dive ends up suffering brain damage. And everyone interviewed acts surprised?

This film mostly follows along the diver´s convalescence and what is depicted as post-¨accident¨ therapy. But how was this an accident? If I decided that i could fly without any sort of wings or other gear and jumped off a skyscraper, wouldn´t that just count as a crazy person´s suicide? Wouldn´t my blood be checked in an autopsy for traces of judgment-compromising drugs?

In Nitsch´s case, everyone acts as though somehow this was an unexpected misfortune beyond his control. I find it not admirable but sad that a human being should knowingly risk his health and well-being, and transform himself into a disabled person by his own choice to do what is manifestly dangerous only because he wanted to be ¨the best¨ at something. Let us be perfectly frank: this is like taking a selfie on a cliff and tumbling to one´s death seconds later.

I hereby nominate apnea diving for top contender for the Darwin Awards. I am sorry that Mr. Nitsch lost a significant number of brain cells, but he is not the first person to have suffered a severe stroke, just one of the few to inflict it upon himself in a quest for some dubious notion of ¨success¨.
