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.
Yeah, you got science and math but at least I got your grammar.

Google is your friend. ..

Nitrous Oxide, better known as NOS does make your car go faster but it's not that simple. The way it works is as follows, when you heat nitrous oxide to about 570 oF, it splits into oxygen and nitrogen. The injection of nitrous oxide into an engine therefore means more oxygen is available for combustion. Because you have more oxygen, you can also inject more gasoline, and that means more energy, power and speed.

I think that virgins should get some kind of punishment for being a tease. HAHAHA

But I agree with you about that whole virgin thing and that weird religion stuff too. A religion that does mankind absolutely no good, but you go to battle to fight other people over it and if you die you go to heaven so you can have . Huh?. And you only get 72 untrained girls to have with. That sucks. Plus- I'd feel paranoid that the big guy is watching me because I do some kinky man!
So even though I am 54 years old, we are still only talking about 3 weeks worth of mediocre fun. then what? 773H man, I can go to China and get 72 virgins too. Trust me this is one thing I know about. Hehehe I think I'll stick with leter bikes!

Sorry for so many posts that I could have combined into one, but I'm doing this from my notepad and this thing is kind of sucky.

Ok, I'm glad someone addressed the nitrous oxide thing.

N2 (nitrogen found in air) is inert, or does not react easily. There are lots of compounds that include nitrogen, and simply having an oxygen atom in the compound will make it an "oxide", which means it is no longer your inert nitrogen.

I'm not sure what you were getting at with "HO". O2 is what you want more of, as this is primarily the form of atmospheric oxygen that allows your fuel to burn. HO is hydroxyl radical, basically water that's lacking an oxygen atom. This is highly reactive and doesn't exist long in a normal environment before combining with something else.

Hydroxyl is similar to water but is missing a HYDROGEN atom.

yep. I mis-typed. I guess if water was missing an oxygen atom it would just be H2, though it is also pretty highly reactive...

No worries, the one that really ticks me off though is that the EPA lables CO2(carbon dioxide) a dangerous green house gas, when infact its the CO(carbon monoxide) created by combustion that is the real killer. When ever I hear some tree hugger( not that trees are bad, they convert CO2 an CO into O2) go on and on about how eco unfriendly my 185hp superbike is, I politely ask them to do us all a favor and stop breathing.

Bad and misleading typo - - - I really ment "HP". Horse Power.
