There are a lot of wonderful things to do in Beijing. Breathing is not one of them. The air pollution in the Chinese city of over 20 million is so horrendous that the U.S. embassy reports levels are "beyond index." Take heart — and lungs — residents of Beijing. Multimillionaire entrepreneur Chan Guangnbiao has air for sale. You can buy a can of it for about 80 cents. They come in in sexy flavors such as "pristine Tibet," "post-industrial Taiwan" and "revolutionary Yan’an." Chen said, "If we don't start caring for the environment, then after 20 or 30 years our children and grandchildren might be wearing gas masks and carry oxygen tanks." Or they may even be breathing out of cans. Wait, that’s right now. [Source]
