Skin does not breathe. What the Vaseline might have done is to prevent him from perspiring and subsequently overheating.

I have an experiment for you and Jim. Spread Vaseline over your entire body and see how it makes you feel. If you feel fine, I'll admit I was wrong you you were slimy.

lol. It's always a good idea to read past the headline if you're going to post a link that *you think* supports your position and actually read the article. From your link:

“The contribution to total respiration is negligible.

The contribution of tcJO2 to the oxygen supply of the whole organism is therefore negligible under normal conditions...

Since in all the experiments in this study an increase of tcJO2 was observed during ischaemia, capillary oxygen removal from the skin is negligible...

Since there is no oxygen consumption in the stratum corneum with a typical thickness of 15 μm, the total thickness of the skin supplied by external oxygen can be estimated to be 266–375 μm...

Under normal conditions the upper skin layers are supplied exclusively by the diffusion of oxygen from the atmosphere. This assumption is justified by the observation of only small changes of tcJO2 during occlusion...

A further reason for the non-attainment of a steady state of the ssPO2 during the 5 min occlusion may be that the tissue oxygen saturation values did not approach a minimum value...”

IOW, your article is saying that oxygen permeates a few layers and is good for skin health, but skin does not breathe, or at best, makes a "negligible" contribution to respiration.

Oh, you actually read it. Klitchko lost the fight. The Vasaline didn't help. Have you tried the experiment yet?

From Wikipedia:

Shirley Eaton (born 12 January 1937) is an English actress.

Eaton appeared regularly in British films throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and achieved notability for her performance as Bond Girl Jill Masterson in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. Preferring to devote herself to bringing up a family, Eaton retired from acting in 1969.

... Eaton achieved most recognition for her performance as Jill Masterson in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, gaining more recognition than actress Honor Blackman, who played famed Bond Girl Pussy Galore. She appeared on the cover of Life Magazine in her gold-painted persona. Her character's death, being painted head to toe in gold paint and suffering "skin suffocation" led to an urban myth that Eaton had died during filming. She appeared in a 2003 episode of the series MythBusters to dispel the rumour.

... Eaton retired from acting to bring up her family and later commented in a 1999 interview with Steve Swires of Starlog magazine, "A career is a career, but you're a mother until you die". She repeated this statement in an interview with journalist James Davies on 18 June 2008, adding, "The most important thing for me was being a woman and having a family more than being a very famous glamorous actress"...


What a woman!!

Indeed. Sounds like she had a heart of gold. Hey did you ever know Allen Ginsberg or Stanley Owsley or Timothy Leary or Neal Cassady? Did you ever have dealings with Jerry Garcia or get to go to any Acid Tests. Did you know Joni Mitchell??

Met Garcia and Mitchell. Had lunch in SF with Ginsberg, although I wish I hadn't. Ever meet a swishy guru?:) Didn't know the others.
