I saw the movie “lady in the water” last night. I really didn’t like it but it raised a couple questions…
one of them can be answered here (I will try to ruin as little as possible for those who intend on seeing the movie):
in one scene, one character swims to the bottom of the water… there are glasses which are flipped over. as he starts to run out of air, he takes a glass and breathes the air which is trapped in the upside down glass through a straw.
the context of the movie leads you to believe that the glass had been down there for some time. Obviously, it was ‘stagnant’ air. wouldn’t air lose certain properties after a certain amount of time or can the air trapped in a small contained environment always be breathable and have the same properties?
sorry if this question is confusing… but so was the whole movie. I think that if you see the movie, you will get a better understanding of the question I’m trying to ask.
