Essential life process where oxygen reacts with glucose from the food that you eat to provide your body with energy. The two by-products of this process are carbon dioxide, which is exhaled along with the rest of the harmless gases that entered your lungs but did not diffuse into your blood, and water.

Not to be confused with breathing, which is how the oxygen enters the body.
If you cannot breathe, oxygen cannot enter your lungs and therefore cannot diffuse into your blood. With no oxygen your cells cannot respire and will therefore die.


Oxygen + Glucose -> Energy + Carbon Dioxide + Water

This is were you have someone lie down and open their mouth. Then the donor pulls of their pants and farts into the recipient's mouth. The recipient then inhails the gas.
Can be done without recipient's permission, but that is not advised. This is very populator in some parts of Michigan.
So I was diving with Brando and my tank ran out of air, he noticed and motioned me to open my mouth...I don't know why I closed my eyes but I did and the next thing I know was he gave me a Respirator...It tasted bad and I still couldn't breath...
