On the one hand, true. On the other hand, bollocks.

Because any one gas would be unhealthy or even deadly
Too much oxygen is bad for you,
much nitrogen is deadly. We need a
mixture like our own atmosphere.
Oxygen and nitrogen together is
more than baked, it's natural.
Refreshing heliox (70% helium/30%
oxygen) or even trimix (65%
15% nitrogen/ 30% oxygen) with
added is the
bar that will produce minimal
damage to the
nervous system. You still get more
oxygen than the regular
and you get to sing in that funny
voice for the karoke bars.
Oh crap, I think someone said
bar in an annotation. I hope this
mixture bar is different enough to
heliox and trimix for oil-rig divers

||Might as well go deep-sea diving while you're at it...
||I dont get it. - Theres too many contradictions. Is the idea to have flavored air?
||[Shz] I think it's satire. Oxygen bars do exist, god knows why.
||I agree [Robo]. My anno is satirical too.
||//Oxygen bars do exist, god knows why.//
||I know why too: because they make money.
||How about a "Xenox" bar where you have a mix of xenon and oxygen? Then everyone would sound like Barry White. Er, I think...
||Ooo, or even a choose your
mixture bar, because there are a
few that could work. I just wanted
to do a mixture because I felt that
would be safer.
||Xenox does look like a more
marketable name and I was
considering that because it's there
as a list of safe mixtures along
with Neox. The other thing is that
if those gasses were concentrated
even in second hand form in a
room you could do neato plasma-
y things with those gasses.
||Oxygen bars are popular because you get high on pure oxygen, which heightens the effects of alcohol and general hornyness.
||Trimix is different though, it must be what athletes breathe so they can give 110% effort.
||Xenon is really expensive and not as heavy as sulphur hexafluoride, which people use to make their voices Whitesque. Maybe that? How about some lighter than air tapas? Helium filled meringues and marshmallows?
