Found and thought it was worth sharing

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High wan first prize at the Greater Idaho
Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned
we have became to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear
of everything in _ In his project he urged people to sign a
petition demanding strict control artical elimination of the chemical
dihydrogen monoxide."
Fad for plenty of good reasons, since:
it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
it is a major component in acid rain
it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
accidental inhalation can kill you
it contributes to erosion
it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
I (43) said yes,
I six( 6) were undecided,
I and only ane (l) knew that the chemical was water.

This post in it's self is a piece of bad science. All chemicals are named under the IUPAC (international union of pure and applied chemists) and their name for H20 is Oxidane- therefore you're doing what all bad scientists do and confuse the general population by being unnecessarily complicated and a tincy wincy bit smug. Rant over.

Di means two, mono means one Add Di to hydrogen and Mono to Oxide. That's actually one way of naming chemicals that I learned in freshman chemistry.

"Alarmist practicing junk science"

His "bad science" was an on purpose thing. He proved that throwing in big words are effective in getting people to believe what you want.

Thats the whole point...

wouldn't the fact that it contributes to erosion make it a dead giveaway?

Because everyone knows the exact definition and process of erosion?

Most people would probably assume he meant Soil Erosion and think it's one of 'those' substances.

Read 'Dihydrogen Monoxide' and thought WTF? Then I realised the student was a troll :)

Too bad it doesn't work on anyone who remembers an inkling of chemistry

Seriously though, if you want dangerous chemicals, look at Hydroxic acid.
-It can be lethal in quantities of just 5 fluid ounces
-It causes explosive reactions with all the Alkali Metals
-It conducts electricity very well in its natural state and causes the deterioration of electric systems when in contact with them
-Accidental inhalation can kill quite quickly
-It corrodes most metals
-Despite its lethality, somehow it is not classified as a dangerous ssubstance by the U.S. Government

And in its natural state, water has those impurities in it
