blessed with the opportunity to sit next to a professor who lives in
what I normally call Mexico City. In addition to being bright and
articulate, she was gorgeous - I hope that's not a sexist thing to
say. While we were carrying on what I felt was an extremely
amiable conversation, I mentioned having heard that there are booths
in Mexico City that dispense oxygen. She laughed and said that was
in Tokyo, but that she had heard that they also have them in Los
Angeles. So I began to wonder aloud if they do in fact exist
anywhere. Now I'm wondering if anyone else has heard of oxygen
booths being in any city, Tokyo or otherwise. It seems like I've
read about it as filler in the newspaper, but I've known several
people who spent time in Japan who never mentioned it, nor have I
ever seen a picture of one. It's a great idea - I think every
chemical plant ought to produce at least as much oxygen as it does
toxic emissions, but since none of them produce any toxic emissions
that's probably a moot point.
