Water is actually dihydrogen peroxide. I think it's all wet. ;) :D :lol:

There's been two or three previous threads on DHMO, but it did fool at least one poster who (briefly) became concerned about the stuff. :)

I prefer it to be banned from the planet. All people found containing or seeking DHO should be jailed imediately.









:-P

Well of course you'd say that after 4 storms drop all of that DHO on your state. Must have kept the HazMat crews busy for months :D

DHMO can be used to make hydroxylic acid, which can be used to make megaton yielding nuclear weapons. Ban it! :D

It's a proven fact that DHMO kills. There would be no drowning without it.

an episode of Penn and Teller springs to mind, they had a person going around an environmentalists gathering/protest getting them to sign a petition banning dhmo, and everyone signed it, no one asked what it was.





It makes me feel almost embarrassed

I remember that one. And they accosted one of the environmentalists at the end asking him if he'd be for banning water and he said no. Then after a few leading questions you saw the light going on in his head... :roll:

How dare anyone let this dangerous chemical around our children! It can bore through rock! It can be fatal if only a small amount is inhaled! It can cause mad burns in its gaseous form! BAN THE DEVILSUBSTANCE :D :P

The Penn and Teller show is so good. I know we've discussed it, but it can't hurt to say it again. :D

If its banned, where will I get my fix? I am thoroughly addicted to the stuff to the point that I could not live without it.

Water is actually dihydrogen peroxide.
Now wait just a cotton-pickin' minute here!

According to Merriam-Webster online, peroxide means "a compound (as hydrogen peroxide) in which oxygen is visualized as joined to oxygen."

So for any molecule to have "peroxide" in its name, it's gotta have at least two oxygen atoms in it, and they've gotta be bonded to each other.

Our old friend DHMO's only got one oxygen atom, hence the "monoxide" designation.

My biggest concern is here:


DHMO is present in nearly every creek, stream, pond, river, lake and reservoir in the U.S. and around the world.

What's in the ones that it isn't found in........ 8-[

These are called "wadi". But even there, sometimes DHMO appears in large amounts. Martian environmentalists successfully got rid of most DHMO on Mars.

I was a little bemused that the NZ Green Party is listed as a supporter. Explains their anti Hydro-power stance.

Don't forget that DHMO is both acidic AND alkaline. None of that "neutralising the acid burn with baking soda" antidote for DHMO!

Visit your local nuclear power station, and look at all the warm cooling water emerging from it. You will find it highly contaminated with DHMO. Worse, in the future we may be powering fusion reactors with an extract of DHMO. Just think of the energy stored in it! This proves it must be dangerous!


I am thoroughly addicted to the stuff to the point that I could not live without it.

Every hard-drug user started on DHMO. It is often mixed with alcohol to make potent intoxicating liquors. It is integral to the cultivation of the crops needed to make tobacco, cannabis, opium, heroin, cocaine, etc.

And, of course, it is the bane of all amateur astronomers, when huge clouds of the stuff float around in our atmosphere, hiding the stars. I hear that this is a problem in rural, as well as urban, areas.

BAN IT NOW!

Wait sereosly what is it, is it Hydrogen oxite?

Edit
:D wait... it is (di(two) hydrogen mon(one) oxigen)
I just relised I'm a genus :P
are these web-sites a joke :)

Well, the great big lake at Bonneville is DHMO-free. And look at all the life-sustaining salt there!

Is there a Bonneville?

AFAIK, there have been two cases of environmentalists falling for it. There was the incident in California where they were going to ban polystyrene cups. There was also an incident with an MP from the New Zealand Green party who expressed support for the ban DHMO campaign, although it seems it was actually just a secretary's fault.
