Xenon? Interesting post. I had not thought of any use for Xenon beyond lighting products. It's a lot less obvious than blood doping or PED use, there seem to be no harmful effects, as there are with steroids, so why should it not be legal? My opinion is that as long as a performance enhancing technique is not otherwise harmful and it is made available to all, then let it be used.

This totally explains why so many adults in my world had a phobia about the Russians when I was growing up in the 50's.

I thought it was because the Russians were different or foreign. It never dawned on me that we feared their inertia.

I musn't let my spouse read the article. In her opinion, when any mention of gas is combined with a reference to bedtime, there is no way that there can be anything noble about it.
