Dense gases are weird in that they make sense but are still kind of unsettling.
True story: I once inhaled some argon because I was standing over the argon tank for a long time and I am a fool and I was like, “My lungs feel…smaller?” and then I had to go find a friend help me stand on my head.

I made it to go on a t-shirt for ephronvestrit. But, alas, it’s too small for that. However, according to redbubble, it’d look great on a pillow! (available here)
how about putting it on a mug? lol
