Whip-Its Sniffing Can be Dangerous

Based on this documentary, the sniffing of Whip-Its (container containing Nitrous Oxide) used to make whip-its cream can cause fatality among others. The users doing Whip-Its or "Noz" as it is sometimes called, as a harmless, laughter-inducing activity, can be deadly.

Not only that, the sniffing of the Nitrous Oxide from balloons as a laughter inducing sensation has similar effect. Such activity could cut off oxygen to some part of the brain which can caused convulsion and asphyxiation from nitrous oxide.

James Cameron on Earth's Deepest Spot: Desolate, Lunar-Like

The Mariana Trench's Challenger Deep—the deepest point on Earth—looks as bleak and barren as the moon, according to James Cameron, who successfully returned just hours ago from the first solo dive to the ocean abyss.
After a descent that took roughly two and a half hours, Cameron spent about three hours conducting the first manned scientific exploration of Challenger Deep.  

Location of the trench.
Located in the western Pacific east of the Philippines and an average of approximately 124 miles (200 kilometers) east of the Mariana Islands, the Mariana Trench is a crescent-shaped scar in the Earth’s crust that measures more than 1,500 miles (2,550 kilometers) long and 43 miles (69 kilometers) wide on average. The distance between the surface of the ocean and the trench’s deepest point—the Challenger Deep, which lies 62 miles (100 kilometers) southwest of the U.S. territory of Guam—is nearly 7 miles (11 kilometers).James Cameron on Earth's Deepest Spot: Desolate, Lunar-Like

During construction of this flyover, traffic congestion is usually very bad. Hopefully, the flyover will be completed soon so that the main access to Kuching airport will be less congested. However, I am sure that once the flyover is opened to traffic, other juntions along the road will be congested. Thus is due to the latent demand which were previously hold up by the upgraded juntion.
