Water Is Dangerous

how gullible are we?

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

For people who don't understand:
those are the accepted chemical formulas for water.


Di(2)Hydrogen Mono(1)xide

Chem was in my opinion the easiest unit next to physics..

My philosophy teacher asked once: would you release upon the world a machine that kills an estimate of 450.000 deaths per year and whose fuel is pricey and harmful to the Atmosphere? My friend immediately said "no, of course not". He said: "congratulations, you just condemned the Car."

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

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.

you are right, H20 is the most potent acid know to man... but it's everywhere man! EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!

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.

i had a feeling that dihydrogen monoxide was water, cuz i saw the oxide and the hydrogen. I always called dihydrogen monoxide as dihydrogen oxide
#79 to #73 - Womens Study Major (12/03/2009) [-]
Only the first word in the name of a chemical compound can drop the mono- prefix. So I have no idea why you're calling it dihydrogen oxide.

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...

it has also been found in the H1N1 virus, that one should make these idiots panic
