Default How come if I take a deep breath and hold it I feel euphoric, but like im gonna passout

I'm sitting here at my cubicle, and I decide to take a deep breath. I hold it for a few seconds and I get very euphoric and almost feel like Im gonna pass out. I would think that by taking in a bunch of oxygen the last thing I would do is pass out......

Why don't you just keep holding your breath and see how far into the euphoria you can go?

because you are depriving your brain of oxygen.

my only guess is that my lungs absorb all of the oxygen within the first second of holding the breath. Any time spent after that the brain isn't get anymore oxygen. So, lol, i should breath more often.....
