Make Airplane Masks Truly Useful

If You're Going to Crash, You Might As Well Enjoy It

One aircraft "Safety Feature" that is common throughout the industry is the Drop Down Mask when an emergency arises. Unfortunately, all they have to offer is a flow of oxygen, or worse, recycled cabin air!

Why not give the passenger a choice of Nitrous Oxide, Doctor Kevorkian Gas, Havana Cigar Smoke, or the delightful aroma of Sizzling Bacon (because, you know, **BACON**)

So now, although you may face CERTAIN DOOM as you plummet to earth, at least you will be able to enjoy one last guilty pleasure.

Or something.

       I love this dearly.

       Would these options be available to the pilots as well, even if there were no emergency (yet)?

       I don't think I want my pilot high while we are high.

       If you don't want your pilot to get high, you'll all be walkin'

       Perhaps we can limit the pilots to the "Bacon" and "Burnt Crunchy Bits In Lard" settings, at least until the aircraft loses a wing. [+]

       This could be generalised to all kinds of masks. In fact with the dreaded lurgey forcing everyone to wear masks all the time, the possibilities are literally endless.

       I would enjoy a little sniff of N.O. while watching my Netflix in the eve, along with my other bad habits.   

       Oh wait, I forgot, I don't have to wear a mask at home. But wait, maybe they will start telling us to wear masks a l w a y s.

       Hmm, a tube connector in the overhead panel with an air supply could be a winner. Not for emergency depressurization O2 etc, but for the current and likely future virus issues. The overhead panel is already plumbed with air vents, so a standardized connector could accept a tube from a passenger face shield. That passenger could then have their face and most of their upper body preferentially bathed in fresh/filtered air rather than whatever is drifting around in the general cabin. A kind of personal air supply. I'd be OK with this in normal times.

       Some Rather High Quality Marijuana Smoke May Also be Piped In For Your "Soon-To-Be-Living-Impaired" Pleasure (...actively disregarding the bitter irony of getting "High" while physically doing the exact opposite...) -- WHY NOT?

       //Perhaps we can limit the pilots to ...."Burnt Crunchy Bits In Lard"//   

       That comes after the crash.

       Getting people to enjoy wearing a mask...   

       Cheech at a donut shop
"Sir, we don't require masks any longer. The pandemic is over. You can take it off.
  

       What's that odd smell?"
  

       "Noooo... donchu touch my mafk. It if keeping me fafe... frum... kroanerf 'n big pink dragonf. Wanna dovin donutf wif fprinklef"
