Of all the strenuous activities out there, breathing is just the worst. I mean, you have to remember to breathe in AND out all the time; there's no breaks or anything. Plus, absolutely everybody does it now, from the young and hip to the old and crotchety. What's up with that, right? Well, my friends, I've got some news you are going to love. It's shocking, though, so take a deep breath... and forget the rest. Gizmodo Like the article said, this breakthrough isn't intended for us Lazy Larrys (and Slothful Susies). A lack of oxygen, even for a short amount of time, can wreak havoc on the human body (especially on the oxygen dependent brain). With these particles, however, we may be able to save precious minutes and seconds; that time could be the very difference between life and death. Also, the fact that we have something like this is pretty cool. This sounds like something ripped straight from Star Trek. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; we are living in the future. Oh, and I was joking before. If you haven't already, you should get back to breathing. It's kind of important.
