Dust Off- A Serious Fatal Hazard
Interesting read. My question deals with this specifically:
It is a heavy gas.-Heavier than air. When you
inhale it, it fills your lungs and keeps the good air, with oxygen, out.
That’s why you feel dizzy, buzzed. It decreases the oxygen to your brain, to
your heart. Kyle was right. It can’t hurt you. IT KILLS YOU. The horrible
part about this is there is no warning. There is no level that kills you.
It’s not cumulative or an overdose; it can just go randomly, terribly wrong.
Roll the dice and if your number comes up you die. IT’S NOT AN OVERDOSE.
It’s Russian roulette. You don’t die later. Or not feel good and say I’ve
had too much. You usually die as your breathing it in. If not you die within
2 seconds of finishing “the hit.” That’s why the straw was still in Kyle’s
mouth when he died. Why his eyes were still open.
Why don’t you suffocate slowly? If the heavy gas just keeps out the good air it should take more than a couple seconds for the brain and hart to be starved of O, right?
