Hey, with enough air pressure you won’t need to floss.

On a more serious note: Be careful about spraying yourself with compressed air. I’ve heard (but not personally witnessed) that blowing air into an open cut can introduce air bubbles into the bloodstream and can stop a heart and cause death.

Be careful.

Nice pic though :)

Yowza, Jerry. I’d never heard of that and looked it up and you’re right. Death in a can sitting right there in my garage! Might make an interesting murder mystery. Maybe not.

The picture is funny….the danger is not. There are way too many people who have had serious injuries from doing this. It would be so easy to damage the eyes, ears or nose. In addition, people have blown air underneath there skin form using high pressure to clean off arms and other body parts.

Where I worked before I retired, it was a dusty environment and this was a common safety violation that we had a lot of problems trying to stop. No matter how many times we warned people, showed them pictures of injuries, they just kept doing it saying that nothing would ever happen to them. It was sad when we had to move to discipline to try to protect people from themselves.

Not a pleasant thought but I have often wondered why they keep looking for a drug to do the death penalty when such an effective and cheap method is available. ??
