Someone passingly said at a party once that we’re all "breathing dinosaur particles," I think, was how he put it. I guess perhaps it was just one of those stock statements you use to rouse a little interest and get yourself laid. Nevertheless, as someone who would know, I had to step in and mention that there’s slightly more to it than that but, yes, we’re potentially like, breathing dinosaur particles as well as Jesus’s particles, Mao’s, and whatever or whoever else has ever been here. In thousands of years people will be breathing little atoms of dead you. I ought to stop myself here and explain that the odds incredibly poor that you might be, at this very moment, breathing any notable molecules, but rest assured someone somewhere is. Also, I don’t want to make you think about your breathing too much and give you dyspnea. This is, of course, when you’re terribly conscious of each breath to the point that it becomes foreign and labored. If you have that now though it’s probably just a little anxiety. I will warn you though that it could also be asthma, pneumonia, cardiac ischemia, interstitial lung disease, congestive heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. [Ryan Nimmo]
