This is an extra long snorkel that can be velcro-ed
body to keep it out of the way, and then unstrapped and
maybe supported by helium balloons to keep it upright,
worn around everyday life, maybe the balloons are those
smiley face balloons. This device would allow the
air from the top of a room, or just from about 12 feet
the ground, or from another air source, or from a place
rarification. That way if the people around you were
trapped in one of those bad air exchange vortical traps
could just blow some good air their way. To justify the
"bong" part of this I guess it could have a purification
element like a water filtration system, or maybe some
kind of magnetic lung that purifies the air. But just a
tube would probably work. Maybe this is why digeree
doos have been around for so long. Maybe this should
have a periscoping aspect so that it can get a lot longer
than 6 feet which may not be far enough to get different
air. Or maybe I should get off my high horse and learn
to share air with the hoi polloi.
||I can see this being useful on crowded commuter trains, when you might like to breathe air through the tiny window opening.
||Make it extra-long, just high enough to reach the smog levels for smokers trying to quit.
