Quantum bakery with Hydrogen

Why can't we just bake hydrogen with Our secret quantum technology and make hydrogen inert.
  [vote for,

I'm pretty sure the nations of the planet have quantum technologies available to make hydrogen inert or fuse and make helium.

I want BLIMPS all over this planet high high up pressurized.

       They don't.   

       We do.   

       We take AMEX.

       Ah, what? Do you have any idea what you mean by "making hydrogen inert"? Actually, you can come close to this by binding two hydrogen atoms to an oxygen atom. The hydrogen is then inert, compact, and can be used to make tea.   

       As for fusing hydrogen to make helium, this is creatively expensive and unneccesary.   

       Also, which nations of the planet? And, as distinct from those nations that aren't on the planet?   

       //I want BLIMPS all over this planet high high up pressurized.// What does BLIMPS stand for? Oh, I see, it doesn't. Did you say you want them high up? Or pressurized? Oh, I see - both. That's a toughie.

       Hydrogen fusion is pretty dangerous stuff, you know.

       [mb] no its a different person, it does give me a partial thought on how to make hydrogen inert though. ok think of a n S orbital (hydrogen) then stretch it real long (========) is there a way to knot it. of course not, right, because it is actually an electron distribution. yet there are things that change the shape of orbitals (why do D orbitals have a almond shaped squinch, or pi orbitals that wild tubey shape) so possibly some modification of the strong or weak force could make a nonreactive orbital shape out of an S orbital.

       //a partial thought// A tremendous breakthrough for you, [beany].

       You could you just mix xenon (unaffordable) with hydrogen, then have the gas go through a hilsch vortex tube [link] to separate the hydrogen   

       the blend if vented would be nonexplosive then it would be easily sorted mostly liquid hydrogen.   

       could it work with plentiful argon? I am absent knowing.

       Tagline when I read this idea:   

       // Number one on the no-fly list //   

       While I'm typing this:   

       // I didn't say you were on to something, [sic] I said you were *on* something. //   

       Then after clicking OK:   

       // You think: Aha! We go: ha, ha. //   

       Maybe the site is trying to tell us something.
