Then he should stop using water, farting and breathing for that matter :)
And no canned whipped cream :)

Hi,

We have floated a boat on it, once or twice, inhaled and spoke with it, onc=
e or twice, and use it infrequently in a Michelson interferometer with gas =
pressure cell to measure index of refraction. =A0I don't think that any=
one has plans to use it further other than for the index of refraction meas=
urement. =A0We had one student refuse to use it because it is a greenhouse =
gas.

I'd use it IF it was not so expensive!
