350 sounds deep. At what point does the pressure actually start to hurt? Additionally, at what point do you lose your hearing?

I'm not sure what the "crush depth" for a human would be.

The Navy has classifed how deep they've gone...

The world record for open-circuit (non umbilical) diving is around 1,000 feet down.

Not on air obviously, various blends of trimix.

she was in a space suit lookin thing too that i'm sure prevented her from being crushed at 1,000 feet :p

rough calculations:
1,000 feet would be (1000/33)+1 atmospheres, which is 31.3atm's, 1atm=14.7psi, so you'd have roughly 460lbs of pressure per sqaure inch at a 1000 feet... compared to the 14.7lbs you feel right now.

that's alot of fuckin pressure. nailguns use what? 120psi?

No space suit needed, just a drysuit probably++

drysuit does nothing to prevent you from being crushed. that's an insane amount of pressure to be under! i gotta beleive they have some special type of reinforced suit to alleviate the problems.

Could you put bubble wrap under your dry suit? Maybe get a dry suit that's a couple sizes too big?

Nope, it doesn't.

But they don't use no special suits.

I think Sheck may have done his ~800ft dives in just a wetsuit.

But remember, we're like 98% water or some such crap like that, so just like the fish that deep, we don't get squarshed.
