    Here's something my brother-in-law sent me:


    A number of years ago a freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first
    prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair.

    He was attempting to show how conditioned we have
    become to alarmists practicing junk science and
    spreading fear of everything in our environment.
    -
    In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict
    control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."
    -
    And, for plenty of good reasons, since:

    1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
    -
    2. it is a major component in acid rain
    -
    3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
    -
    4. accidental inhalation can kill you
    -
    5. it contributes to erosion
    -
    6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
    -
    7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
    -
    He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
    -
    Forty three (43) said yes, six (6) were undecided, and only one (1) knew
    that the chemical was.

    Does anyone know what this dangerous chemical is?

    Not as difficult as an Ozzy topic, but this is a nice diversion from things!

    That is too funny. But to be honest, I might have rushed to be one of the 43 wanting it banned. I wonder, did this really happen or is it 'urban legend'?

    It probably happened. Not many people know our little "chemical" by that name.
