Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!

The Invisible Killer
Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

Dihydrogen monoxide:
is also known as hydroxl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
contributes to the "greenhouse effect."
may cause severe burns.
contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions!
Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
as an industrial solvent and coolant.
in nuclear power plants.
in the production of styrofoam.
as a fire retardant.
in many forms of cruel animal research.
in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.
Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!

The Horror Must Be Stopped!
The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its "importance to the economic health of this nation." In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.

It's Not Too Late!
Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don't know can hurt you and others throughout the world. Send email to no_dhmo@circus.com, or a SASE to:

Good freaking God.

I should ban you for 10 year old Internet humor.

I had a feeling this was what was in the thread when I read the title.... but, then I thought, "Surely Slayer's not THAT stupid."

I'd slap the "LAME" tag on the thread title, but your name in the poster column should be sufficient.

I use it around the house all of the time. Kills bugs dead. And it leaves a nice flowery aroma. Couldn't live without it.

What is it?

And I'll assume that if it's that dangerous, and it's still used, then it must be pretty hard to come up with a viable alternative.

yeah well generally speaking 2 Hydrogen molecules and 1 Oxygen molecule tend to form a compound that's necessary for life as we know it. Without H2O, we don't think their can be life.

I'm enjoying a big cup of the stuff right now! :toast:

I find it ironic...

Did you know that anyone who ever came in contact with Dihydrogen Monoxide eventually died?
:hmmm:

:p

Slayer, you have taken ignorance to a new level.

Oh get over it. It's a common mistake made not because people don't really understand the distinct meanings but because our brains learn to associate the sounds of word with the repetitive physical actions of typing them.

BTW, I question your use of "ironic". Perhaps you could explain the irony of a typo?

;)

I think it was all that Einsteinic science junk you had surrounding "their".

Funny! For April Fools day a radio DJ here played that joke, saying the Wichita water system had Dihydrogen Monoxide it. Some people actually started freaking out due to the simple fact that they didn't know what Dihydrogen Monoxide was. If I am not mistaken we learned that in science class back in elementary school.
