I'm going to go outside...
Going outside is not 100% oxygen. Pure 02 is almost a drug. The euphoric feeling you will receive is amazing.
So what? For all of the years of mankind on earth, we have been breathing 21% oxygen. Now we need 100?
Oh, and by the way, I found their website. The FAQ is ridiculous.
If you really want to feel lightheaded, just breathe rapidly.
Plus, you can get welding-grade oxygen (99%) for much less per cubic foot.
I like the link on the left: "Click here to read about the history and benefits of oxygen."
Well, we do require some of it every few seconds to live, so....they have a point.
What is really amazing, is going in an altitude chamber, ascending to a high altitude without oxygen. Then breathing 100% oxygen. Awesome effect.
As for this idea, I think I'll pass.
Yay! Another miracle elixir! ...If only any of them worked.
It's bad enough when companies use poorly conducted studies to support the validity of their claims, but when you've got bupkis to show in support of your claims, you should be arrested.
"You know why they put oxygen masks on planes?"
"So you can breathe?"
"Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows."
Yeah, just reminded me of that scene.
I think this is a dumb gimmick though.
Really, so you've never heard of the oxygen bars scattered around different parts of the United States and the world even.
Here's a link from the fda website...truth be told it can't be worse than smoking nicotine.
Not to even mention that Vegas casinos practically run on pure oxygen.
Yay! Now we can waste more energy, money, and natural resources on something that we already get for free! It's the bottled water of the 21st CENTURY!!!!
Seriously WTF? I can understand oxygen for medical purposes (as my grandfather does) but just because it feels better? Come on....
I could see needing one if I was mountain climbing or such. High altitudes would call for it. But, other wise, seems a waste of money. To get more oxygen in your blood, take a couple aspirins. They thin the blood and you get better circulation.
Do they? Interesting...
silly product for silly people
I'm pretty sure this is an urban myth. If anything, it'd create a pretty serious fire hazard to do this.
They've gone from suck to blow!
Beautiful line from an amazing movie.
book actually turned into a movie.
but that is one of the first things i thought of as well.
I'm not sure how much you need it. I live in Denver, the Mile High City, and I never have problems breathing. Even when I go up to the Rocky Mountains at 14,000 feet, I don't have a problem. But may I'm just used to the altitude.
That's an urban myth. Oxygen is not flammable.
Correct. Oxygen itself is not flammable. However,it makes everything else that can burn burn a lot faster and with a lot more intensity. So in that case it is EXTREMELY flamable. Ever hear of Apollo 1?
Because you're still getting 21% O2 in every breath. It's just a lower density.
But I see a lot of people come in from out of town and say that they have trouble breathing either in Denver or higher up in the mountains.
Are you guys really just learning about this now? There are oxygen bars all over the place and it really does make you feel better, but who knows how safe it is at this point.
I didn't say it was.
