    Canned Canadian air (yes, air) for sale in China & - like in Spaceballs !

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/peop...ains-high.html

    Their first shipment to China was a little over 500 bottles of air, their next shipment in two weeks will be around 700.


    Not a wow-wee type of thing but a story of interest.

    Well the French convinced us to pay high prices for a common item in the US = water, bottled.

    "Virtual fire" would allow me to feel the warmth/heat virtually - not just see & hear it - but w/o any risk of injury or damage.
