So it turns out I was sicker than I thought, but not as sick as I could have been.
Which is nice.
I went to my doctor, and she tested how well I could exhale.
Turns out I'm really good at exhaling.
But they thought they would give me a stack of drugs to make me even better at it.
They only managed 15% better because I'm so good at it already, but the breathing in thing became much better. They seemed a little disappointed in my 15% new extra amazing ability to breath out.
They didn't seem anywhere near as excited about the breathing in bit as I was.
Doctors can be funny like that.
Anyway, thanks modern medicine.
It turns out if you have a chest infection, mentioning it in a blog is no longer enough to actually cure it.
So, nothing unusual there, but stay with me as there is an interesting bit to come.
. If they didn't, that would be a pretty good name for it.
Its a mask thinggy. with an air hose entering from the bottom right of frame.
The liquid went in just above the aqua* coloured disk connected to the other aqua bit.
That's all well and good so far, but here's the interesting bit.
Adding only air they managed to make fog.
Now, I love fog as much as the next guy, so being able to make it made me pretty happy, even if it wasn't really me that made it, although I did have control of a small green switch, so I'm taking credit for it.
Having taken home the thing, I now have the ability to make fog at will.
Fog might mean very small air bubbles, or any number of interesting and powerful technologies.
Personally I'm hoping for small bubbles.
Small bubbles mean a really large surface area. A really large surface area might mean excellent oxygen uptake in a fish tank.
Or something else.
I just love a mystery.
120 Things in 20 years is still in an aquaponics fog for the time being, but is on the mend.
*I've never used "aqua" in a sentence before, and I've been able to speak for ages. I just thought you should know.
