    Just wondering if any of you are concerned about the growing DiHydrogen Monoxide problems in this country.

    I just came across "dhmo.org" and if you are concerned about your kid's safety or a beloved pet, please read about the growing problem. If, however, you want kids with three eyes and glow in the dark flippers; or a dog that will never run with the other dogs--just sit and cry while watching his brother and sister run and play and frolic, then fine, ignore me at your peril.

    And I am being cerial, no foolin, honest to goodness, I would never yell theater around a crowded campfire or however the old saw goes.

    So please do not be a fool and learn to recognize the problems.

    More Facts About DHMO:

    Dihydrogen Monoxide Facts[/h]Dihydrogen monoxide:

    * is also known as hydric 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.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide Uses

    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.

    Stop the horror - Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide
    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 also is one of the byproducts of combustion - it is in your car exhaust. I've also heard of people being engulfed in it, with levels in some places high enough that it completely displaces 100% of the breathable atmosphere. Please be careful if you find yourselves in close proximity.

    Bob,
    Thanks for bringing this odorless, colorless and tasteless menace to more people's attention. What we need now is a watchdog organization

    Thanks for this, Bob, useful stuff to know. However, I am a little puzzled as I was under the impression that you disliked children ;)

    I tend to dislike most of them, for sure. Especially the noisy, loud, untrained ones that tend to infest my life.

    I think Zager and Evans had it right when they sang about the future in their song, "In The Year 2525."

    "In the year 6565
    Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
    You'll pick your son, pick your daughter, too
    From the bottom of a long black tube . . ."

    I especially like avoiding the wife part. All they seem to do is nag, nag, nag. Like I was supposed to know that when you are married, you cannot date other women. Nobody teaches men these things. For the record, it should occasionally be their turn to take out the trash and they better learn to kill spiders because sometimes I might be out on a date.

    As usual, an excellent riposte, Bob. Like I said before, love your sense of humour. BTW, my wife often takes out the trash and has a penchant for violence towards dark 8 legged beasties :D
    Keep 'em coming, Bob

    Those people can't be helped. Best to discontinue their access to scotch or whiskey.

    "They" are just trying to misdirect us from the true menace, Hydrogen Hydroxide (symbol HOH). When two of those incredibly-destructive molecules join, it becomes, of course, HOH-HOH.
