'''Air''' (named after the French duo) is [[AAAAAAAAA!|a]] pathogen known to cause [[cancer]] in the state of [[California]]. It was once believed to fill the [[space]] within about 6 miles of the surface of the [[Earth]]. This "air theory" was used to explain various phenomena that are now understood in different ways.

For example, it was observed that a burning candle placed in a bell jar would eventually go out. According to air theory, this was because the air inside the jar had been used up by the chemical reaction involved in burning. Obviously, this was a very implausible theory. We now know that the real explanation is that [[phlogiston]] given off by the burning fills up the jar so that there is no room for the flame.

Air was also supposed to be the medium in which waves such as [[light]] and [[sound]] propagate near the surface of the Earth. Though such a medium was indeed required by the wave mechanics of the [[19th Century]], even then it was known that there must be exceptions, as light waves obviously propagate through interplanetary space (between the Earth and the [[Sun]] for example). Air theory held that there was no air in most of interplanetary space, so even air theorists had to hold that some waves can propagate without any medium.

'''This question of wave mechanics led to the experimental refutation of air theory. The famous Michelson-Morley [[experiment]] attempted to measure the [[velocity]] of the Earth relative to the air surrounding it. Surprisingly, it showed that the Earth and the air around it seemed to be at rest with respect to one another—an astonishing result given that the Earth is moving through space at incredible speed. Air theorists were quick with a saving hypothesis: the Earth, they claimed, pulls the surrounding air around with it—the so-called "air drag" theory. But this was obviously ''ad hoc'', and could be explained by no known mechanism, so few [[scientists]] ever took it seriously'''.

In 2005 [[Dr. Sebastian]] also attempted to prove air theory by observing Freddy Mercury as he played the air guitar in a concert in Bangladesh in 1543. Of course he eventually was proved wrong and shamefully admitted that air was in fact nonexistent. This debacle caused many people to discount his brilliant field theory of biterness as [[balogna]], although it was proved in 2005 through the famous [[red firetruck effect]] experiment.

Air theory was dealt a further blow in 1917 by physicist [[Luke Skywalker]]. His famous [[Death Star]] experiment proved that the resultant sound waves from an explosion could be transmitted through interstellar space, and are clearly audible to observers hundreds of kilometers away. He also showed that even in space, objects can explode in flames, disproving the hypothesis that air was essential for burning.

In the 1920s, though air theory was known to be almost certainly false, there were still a few phenomena that could not be explained without it. The most important of these were the effects of "wind", which air theorists had supposed to be due to moving bodies of air pushing on objects close to the surface of the earth. It was at this time that [[Albert Einstein]] published his general theory of [[relativity]] which showed that the motions of objects "blown about" by the "wind" were not due to any kind of external force, but are simply natural inertial motions of objects in a curved space-time.

The final blow to air theory was dealt with the discovery of the infamous Pentium division bug in the 1990s. The resulting re-calculations of mechanical properties showed that this obsolete theory was no longer needed to explain observations in nature.

Air theory, at last refuted, joined the [[gene]], the [[atom]], [[Antarctica]], and the [[free lunch]], in a long list of scientific red herrings. Air is still used in the [[air guitar]].

The exact reason for addiction is unknown, but it is commonly believed to stimulate the [[respiratory system]] of the Animal Galaxy.

With the releasing back into the atmosphere of millions of tons of [[carbon]], the air will soon contain CO2 levels making it difficult to breathe or function efficiently. Soon, CO2-scrubbed air will be a utility, piped into your home and office like gas and electricity. You will soon quite literally be paying for the air you breathe. So why not get in on the ground floor of this exciting new industry?
