Pretty sure I know where all this Nitrogen stuff started... or at least
this is what they had to say about it back in A&P (Airframe and
Larger aircraft use massive high pressure tires, and having one explode
or blow off the rim can result in structural damage. Their wheels are
equipped with (thermally activated) fusible plugs designed to open and
limit maximum pressure in the event of a tire overheat condition... like
the long hard brake application of an aborted take-off, or a wheel well
fire to name two. These plugs do not re close, and once blown allow the
tire to completely deflate over a period of several minutes.
See the second paragraph under the 'Other Applications' heading:
With the landing gear retracted, and if the tires are inflated with
plain air, a blown plug/s can force aspirate a wheel well fire. With
Nitrogen, the blown plug/s can assist fire mitigation by helping purge
the wheel well of oxygen.
For automotive/truck use, there is absolutely on harm in Nitrogen's use,
but the only thing it'll really accomplish is to lighten your wallet.
regular air is 80% nitrogen........
corrections departments are looking at going back to gas chambers to
execute prisoners sentenced to death.
they would breathe 100% nitrogen and just go to sleep within a few
minutes...... No breathlesness since nitrogen is a noramal part of
I DONT BELIEVE anyone should ever be executed, since mistakes can and
have been made, executing killing people who were not guilty..
When I was getting my safety training down at the Kennedy Space
Center they told us that if you walked into a closed space with
no oxygen you would die in about 2 breaths. That's because the
oxygen free atmosphere would suck the oxygen right out of your
blood. In fact I understand that there are almost always 2 deaths
associated with an oxygen free atmosphere. One person goes in
and drops, so the second goes to help and dies also. That was
why they have such good training for entering confined spaces. There
have been a couple of deaths caused that way. And of course they
purge a lot of spaces with nitrogen prior to launch to prevent
fires and explosions.
You don't really need a chamber to execute somebody with a pure
gas, you just need a mask. Put the mask on, turn on the gas and
they will be gone.
I agree with not executing any body. If they turn out to be innocent
you can't bring them back. And there is another argument that will
get some people. It costs a lot more in court costs to execute somebody
than it does to lock them up for life.
I've looked into euthanasia, and it seems that any inert
gas -- helium, nitrogen, argon -- will work about the same.
Simply drift off to sleep, painlessly, and no feeling of
suffocation since these gasses don't combine with
hemoglobin and form carbon dioxide, triggering the
sensors in the carotid artery..... Simply a little hose
to a plastic bag over one's head...... a good plan to
have in one's back pocket.....
Regarding the original poster about tires... I'd fill them
full of fart gas so that people wouldn't park so close
and dogs wouldn't pee on the tires.... Harbor Freight
sells a transfer pump that one can insert to pump out
the farts into a plastic bag connected to a compressor
input, and re-fill the tires from there. Use caution, tho,
and don't turn on the compressor pump with the transfer
pump hose still inserted.... you might lose your tongue
and your ears....
You shouldn't do that :-) The government is taking advantage of the fact
that most people are too stupid to realize the government is killing
people, unless they CALL it killing. If enough people find out what the
government is actually doing, they'll have to reopen room 101.
No doubt that there are people who should be killed and deserve it but
the power of life and death should be incorruptible and unfortunately
NO legal system is incorruptible even our own is not immune to
corruption. If we're going to have a death penalty lets have a mandatory
death penalty for the commission of ANY felony by any public
servant who takes an oath to uphold the laws and Constitution of the
country. Sentence to be carried out within 48 hours upon conviction.
People with special powers, special privileges and special immunities
should get special punishment. Perjury is a felony, imagine what would
happen when politicians realize that lying could get them killed? ^_^

While you're at it, have your coolant replaced with a 50-50 mix of
antifreeze (ethylene glycol) and an automotive-grade solvent (e.g.
"dyhydrogen monoxide" aka "DHMO").
Be careful though, DHMO is nasty stuff:
