You know that one good breath of nitrogen can kill you?

So - - - - you mean like I couldn't ride anymore then.........???

I don't think that's actually nitrogen. It's the HO that condenses around the super cold air near the transfer valves.

I second this. Seek medical care immediately. It may already be too late...

Here is my bike much cleaner. At this time I was using my new seat polisher.

It's the duct tape on the wheel wedge. It used to be green, but I replaced it with silver. Goes better with the black.

Ahh you do know the the atmosphere is composed mostly of nitrogen right?

Its not the nitrogen that kills you, its the lack of oxygen, which nitrogen displaces that results in asphyxia. Generally in confinded spaces anything with less than 20% oxygen is going to result physiological affects. Below 18% and you'll notice somethings is wrong but no necessarily what. below 15% and you'll only have a few minutes to figure it out. Below 10 you'll be gasping for air but unable to breath and pass out.

You got on base but there is a little more to it. It can stop oxygen transportation by the red blood cells. See below


Arterial or anoxic hypoxia occurs when there is a problem in oxygenating the blood, and the arterial oxygen tension is abnormally low. Anoxic hypoxia can be the result of exposure to an irritant gas such as phosgene or various oxides of nitrogen, including nitric oxide. These gases penetrate deeply into the lung, and their irritant effects provoke local inflammatory changes resulting in increased capillary permeability. The outpouring of fluids into the alveoli impairs gas exchange resulting in increased hypoxia, which triggers further capillary vasodilatation in a vicious cycle. The end result is pulmonary edema (adult respiratory distress syndrome).

As often as well deal with confined spaces purged with nitrogen, its a topic we cover in depth. Its also a leading cause of deaths in confined spaces

Type slower. ha.

So answer this, anyone who thinks they're a "Mr. Wizzard":
The set-up;
We used nitrogen in all our pneumatic test cylinders because it wouldn't esplode (splanglish) under pressure because it's innert. In welding it sheilds the arc so oxygen doesn't cause combustion. Halon has been phased out due to the Montreal Protocol and replaced with nitrogen - to extinguish fire by removing/replacing oxygen.
1) Wouldn't the nitrogen in Shell gasoline just take up volumn and be of no value?
B) How does "nitros" oxide create more HP if nitrogen is innert?
Last) Why does it burn so bad when I pee?

You also use it for pneumatic testing because it doesnt compress the same as reg air, its isnt affected by temps the same, and it can be dry.

nitrogen, oxygen other gasses in the blood are most interesting when your under pressure

Narcosis while diving (also known as nitrogen narcosis, inert gas narcosis, raptures of the deep, Martini effect), is a reversible alteration in consciousness that occurs while diving at depth. It is caused by the anesthetic effect of certain gases at high pressure. The Greek word ναρκωσις (narcosis) is derived from narke, "temporary decline or loss of senses and movement, numbness", a term used by Homer and Hippocrates.[1] Narcosis produces a state similar to drunkenness (alcohol intoxication), or nitrous oxide inhalation. It can occur during shallow dives, but does not usually become noticeable at depths less than 30 meters (100 ft).

Except for helium and probably neon, all gases that can be breathed have a narcotic effect, although widely varying in degree.[2][3] The effect is consistently greater for gases with a higher lipid solubility, and there is good evidence that the two properties are mechanistically related.[2] As depth increases, the mental impairment may become hazardous. Divers can learn to cope with some of the effects of narcosis, but it is impossible to develop a tolerance. Narcosis affects all divers, although susceptibility varies widely from dive to dive, and between individuals.

Narcosis may be completely reversed in a few minutes by ascending to a shallower depth, with no long-term effects. Thus narcosis while diving in open water rarely develops into a serious problem as long as the divers are aware of its symptoms, and are able to ascend to manage it. Diving beyond 40 m (130 ft) is generally considered outside the scope of recreational diving. Below these depths, as narcosis and oxygen toxicity become critical risk factors, specialist training is required in the use of various helium-containing gas mixtures such as trimix or heliox. These mixtures prevent narcosis by replacing some of the breathing gas with non-narcotic helium.
