Water Is Dangerous

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show
how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. in his
project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide"
And for plenty of good reasons, since:
1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
2. it is a major component in acid rain
3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
4. accidental inhalation can kill you
5. it contributes to erosion
E. rt decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
I rt has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
43) said yes,
sot (6) were undecided,
and only one (l) knew that the chemical was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Bumble Are We?"
He feels the conclusion is obvious

di - two
hydrogen - well duh, hydrogen
mono - one
oxide - oxygen

Exactly, NO RESULTS. All you Eurofags are too busy practicing blow jobs and butt sex to sign petitions.

More carbon has been sent up into the air by the eruption of any major volcano (including but not limited to Krakatoa, Mount St. Helens, Pompeii, or the Yellowstone National Park Super-volcano) than by our fossil fuel emissions. Also you must realize that any substance that acts as insulation keeps things both in, and out. So while more heat does get trapped in our atmosphere, less heat enters it to begin with as well.

Did you know that the magnetic polarity of the Earth is changing, so within the next couple hundred years North will become South and vice versa. Also if you want a cause to get behind, look up the Yellowstone Park Volcano. What you find will shock you.

Well, its Idaho, all they do is grow potatoes. How were they supposed to know dihydrogen monoxide is water?

WOW THAT SCHOOL IS FULL OF IDIOTS TO NOT KNOW DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE IS WATER. YOU CAN BREAK IT DOWN DI IS A PREFIX FOR 2 HYDROGEN, H2, MONO IS A PREFIX FOR 1 OXIDE, O. H2O

You're all sheep. This stuff is actually acid and it can do serious damage.

If you're not a chemist then don't ******* argue with me.

woooooh. I'd like to visit that town. It's basically a con-man's best dream since the people there are all so ******* stupid.

Only in Idaho.

It's all funny and stuff until you get to chemistry and learn that the real word for water is HOH which is Hydrogen Hydroxide.

this is great XD

learned about this in school, i feel sorry that some people are under educated in a sense :(

i gave a speech about this in class and got 60 students to sign a petition and had a debate going before i lost it and busted out laughing. In a college class. holy **** .
i had some more awesome facts:
Hundreds of people Die each year after prolonged exposure to it's solid form
It is believed to have been a key component in the failure of the levees at Katrina
And it is highly addictive. One dose can have you so hooked that withdrawal often proves fatal!
and yet it is commonly employed as a cleaning product in DAYCARE CENTERS!
Etc. I fear for our future generations...
