Ban Dihydrogen monoxide

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by MarvinTheMartian, Aug 29, 2006.


    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 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.

    So how gullibile are you? :)
  2. I won't be happy until there's more of it! People don't understand how badly it's needed. :twisted:
  3. Down under 47% in Vic.. That sucks! :(
  4. It's a very important chemical, in it's "pure" form it costs more per litre than petrol. Clearly though this is is not enough of a disincentive against it's prolific use and should therefore be taxed heavily with associated graphic warning labels much like cigarettes ;).
  5. dosent matter how bad it is the oposition would WATER down any regulations to control this dangerous substance.
  6. Also, I can guarantee that 100% of people who have Dihydrogen monoxide will die
  7. saw this about a year ago and was amazed at people who were actually taking it seriously...... (i know of at least 5 peopole actually wrote tot he Government about it :shock: )

    i still think the hold story won't hold water!
  8. Goes well with Coca Cola.
  9. Ruins ride days too.
  10. I've also heard members of Al Queada are known to use it on a regular basis.

    Scray stuff !!!

  11. its something mr ridescbr should have ingested lots of today in fact.
    regardless of abovementioned issues, a known side effect is that it can help to sooth a headache caused by excessive drinking
  12. Another Yankee bashing. Your anti-American sentiment has more negative effects on you than this chemical has.
  13. They didn't write it :roll: , in fact a student from america did. (in 1997 as well)
  14. Oh dear. Please tell me this wasn't a serious post. :rofl:
