That is an interesting read. I have had a file saved on my pc for years and something I always include in my studies.
One part reads:
"...theorized that low atmospheric pressure at altitude caused declining blood oxygen levels and these conditions effect serotonin - the chemical that helps regulate mood - and would also lead to low oxygen circulating throughout the brain."

interesting. i never thought there could be that kind of correlation. i guess a factor is that since the higher altitudes are...well...higher, there's less oxygen, and with less oxygen, people tend to act differently.

Every time I've been to Colorado I always seem to get a sort of mental fog for the first day or so. Of course it may just be a side effect of having to adjust to the thinner air & easier fatigue onset, because I'm used to operating my ass at sea level.
