    I just finished Under the Dome, took me 6 months :)

    I have a lot of questions in general, but right now I'm wondering a few things:

    1. Why all this stuff about sticking a tube in the tires and transferring the air into trash bags? Why couldn't they just breath through the tire tube directly?

    2. There is a very weird coincidence where both Carter Thibodeaux and Aidan Appleton make a bizarre comment about "if he is picking his pants, that must mean he is going to the movies" at the exact same moment. Is this a famous expression? I've never heard it and seems almost impossible they would both think it. Not important, just wondering :)

    The air in the tires is under alot of pressure so it would probably blow up a lung if taken directly from the tire.

    Okay cool, but didn't Sam say that he knows of people that breathed air directly from a tire during a warehouse fire many years ago?

    ...all depends dude...if they were sucking it directly off the valve stem, it would blow up your airways, however it could be used as "blow-by" oxygen, release with finger pressure and have your nose positioned close by...as to the quote, it's an old expression/joke...picking his pants, must be going to the movies(or wherever)...i.e. picking your seat...kinda like you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose-but you can't pick your friends nose...
