Deep Voicing It: Chemistry Teacher Inhales Sulfur Hexaflouride (Think Like, The Opposite Of Helium)

December 13, 2012


This isn't the first video we've seen of somebody inhaling sulphur hexaflouride and then talking, because we saw Mythbuster's Adam Savage do it in this video (way back in 2008!). This is just another one. It's like watching videos of cats trying to fit in boxes that are way too small for them. I don't care how many of the same video there are, I need to see them all.

Hit the jump and get your high school chemistry class on.

Thanks to Dunc, who got me a tank of sulfur hexaflouride so I could try this for myself but it turned out to be nitrous instead. I'm not complaining.

    While it is fun to do this, it is potentially dangerous. because it is 5 times denser than air, it will settle at the bottom of your lungs and requires many deep breaths to remove. People have suffocated while inhaling this stuff because they had no idea how to get it out of their lungs.

    I suppose you could do a handstand and heavy breathing to exhale all the sulphur hexaflouride if having trouble breathing after inhaling the gas, but I can't guarantee you won't black out whilst doing so lol.

  • Its for science.

    sulfur hexaflouride my ass. i know a whippit when i see one.

  • Derek St. Gelais

    Yes SF6 is good fun but it's pretty expensive these days and remember to breath heavy when your done because it can stay in the lungs and reduce breathing capacity.

  • Sulfur hexaflouride: it is just as fun as helium.

    Now make meth >:|

    Seriously, that is the best you could think of? Are you a Slowpoke or something?

    He then died. "It was woorrrth it" he said, in a deep voice.

    We used to experience the same thing with Nitrous Oxide. Or maybe it just felt that way.

    Glad to see Steve Carell's older brother is doing well.

    Science Fuck yeah
