Cute, Jim. I saw that coming.
Also on the sillier side, I recall a thread where some athletes were training
while wearing a mask that restricted their air intake.
This was supposed to help condition them for performance at higher altitude.
I can see using oxygen as an aid to get in more aerobic exercise if one has compromised lung function,
or even to allow them to function normally--even with less than ideal respiration.
The ski shops around Jackson sell bottles of oxygen with attached masks for use by hikers.

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.
