The bottom line for the FAA's rules regarding oxygen are for everyone's safety. 
 They are there for a good reason.  Great posts by folks with their own 
experiences regarding oxygen use and how much it can impact a person well below 
Boost oxygen canisters are available in numerous places for under $10 each.  
While these are a last-ditch item they are cheap insurance.  One or two of 
these in the cockpit could make all the difference someday for one of us.
Final thought.  If you become hypoxic and do get on oxygen, know in advance 
that the symptoms of hypoxia may get WORSE for a few seconds after the oxygen 
starts to hit your system.  Do not panic this is normal!  Again, training and 
personal experience have proven this factoid to me.
Be safe.  Nanu-nanu.
