What a nut. Normal blood pH is carefully controlled between 7.35
and 7.45. Show me somebody with pH 7.0 and I'll show you somebody well
on the way to being a corpse. With pH 7.2, they're just really sick.
A diabetic in ketoacidosis, or perhaps an asthmatic losing the battle
to breathe enough through those tiny airways, and now tiring out. The
person who just had a seizure. Nobody healthy, unless it's the really
healthy guy who just held his breath a minute and a half while swimming
the length of the pool underwater, twice.
