Catching tears

The history of tear catchers, also known as lachrymatory bottles, dates back centuries. In the Bible, they are mentioned. Egyptian and Roman examples are provided. Because these bottles were associated with wealth, it is likely that those with extra denarii could store tears in them.

In the Victorian era, tear catchers were used by all classes as soon as they were reintroduced. A special bottle was used to collect tears when a loved one passed away. Tears could evaporate through tiny holes in bottle stoppers. The mourning period ended when a dry bottle was found.

Before leaving for duty, soldiers would give their wives tear bottles. As time went on, their wives added more tears to glass cylinders after they left. The bottle is full when he returns home from an extended absence, and he knows that his wife grieved while he was gone. Soldiers’ wives poured their tears onto the graves of their husbands to mark the end of a year of mourning.

Many women shed tears when Aspen’s mining era came to an end. These people died young because life was hard for them. In childbirth, many women died, and many children died before they reached adulthood. Widows faced many financial challenges after their hardworking husbands died young.

There were four undertakers needed because Aspenites died at a high rate. E. Turley was busiest during the summer at Cooper Avenue’s E. Turley. Wilson and Allen fought one another on South Mill in the 1890s. During his time as coroner, Johnsen worked for a long time. His business was purchased between the Jerome Hotel and Main and Mill by Belden and Beall.

Collins Block Building, located in a prominent area, was occupied by Belden and Beall. The furniture business they ran was similar to that of all the undertakers and embalmers in Aspen. Funeral caskets were made by furniture makers in conjunction with funerals.

Funeral homes sell funeral accessories today as auto dealers do for their vehicles. Jewelers and perfume manufacturers benefited instead of Victorian undertakers from the fad at that time.

Did you ever marvel at a dolphin’s motion, a seal’s motion, or a shark’s motion? It seems that moving them is not difficult. Over millions of years, they have evolved to be fast and agile as marine predators. As water has an 800 times greater density than air, increasing speed requires a large amount of propulsion power. Streamlining helps reduce drag while moving through water efficiently.

2nd Reason for TRIM

Diving in trim means facing forward toward the surface. In order to move efficiently through the water, it is essential to have a good horizontal trim. In your dry suit, weight placement, BCD weight, and gas positioning all contribute to successful trim. Good vertical trim can be achieved by competent backmount divers as well as good horizontal trim. Your cylinders are positioned on either side of your body, allowing them to be more closely aligned with your center of gravity and buoyancy.

Lastly, there is a need for balance

Both sides of your torso will have sideways mounted cylinders. No matter how you position yourself, your center of gravity and buoyancy will always be close to the center. Your balance is never affected by your position, whether you are upright or inverted.
