The BEST thing is what this stuff does to your voice when you breathe it in.

Is anyone allowed this stuff and if so do you know were one might acquire some
User avatar #230 to #229 - stratosrider (02/12/2013) [-]
I'm afraid this isn't really available commercially... I work right next to a chemistry laboratory, so sometimes I pop over to see what cool new compounds and stuff they have.
#231 to #230 - alloutpsycho (02/12/2013) [-]
So lucky, wish I could say the same

Wait, so if something is floating on something, and I fill the first something what whatever it's floating upon, then it will sink?

Man, this reminds me of something.

Oh, right. Water in a boat! Genius, OP!

INTERNET FADS ARE A CONSPIRACY!!!

by studying the origins of all these internet fads I came to the conclusion that the government created them all to see how easily people can be manipulated

swag, ponies, memes, the government started it all. and if you do not do anything about it, they will start they communist plan to plant anti-family and morale ideas on our teenagers, ruining the next generations

PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

the gas is heavier than air meaning that it can be kept in an open container from the top. And if you can find a light enough object you can float it on it just as the gif above. Dont forget that because its heavier than air, if you breathe it it will make your voice lower/deeper.

mythbusters tested this after being shown that video.

I wonder what would happen if I inhaled this, Would my voice sound like Morgan Freemans?
User avatar #170 to #166 - burnitall (02/12/2013) [-]
I remember seeing Adam Savage inhaling some of this in an episode in Mythbusters and it made his voice deeper so perhaps you would sound like Morgan Freeman, only one way to find out.
User avatar #177 to #170 - EnergizierAnon (02/12/2013) [-]
maybe, but he sounded like a demon after inhaling that stuff.
