1. Oh, I wish... floating on a nice airbed in the sun, mmm
2. Well, that's just plain nonsense, it's at least four thousand and seventy-nine kilometers...
3. Yes it's true, I've been a gas for many years now!
4. The heat would be true (since I'm a gas), the acid not so much unfortunately.

6. It's hard to fight a gas, but apparently a lot of people are trying.
