    Default Environmental Hysteria Exemplified - Hilarious Petition Spoof

    Q: What is dihydrogen monoxide?
    A: H20 otherwise known as water

    And so we have it. People don't know their high school chemistry. Check out this hilarious clip of a woman who gets people to sign her petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide...

    Then why did you post it?

    Wink Wow.................

    I just did some research on DiHydrogen Monoxide. That stuff is Dangerous. Worldwide, thousands of people die each year from contact with this dangerous chemical. Remember, Several Years ago, an Atmospheric Abberation in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean eventually resulted in a large volume of Dihydrogen Monoxide being dumped on New Orleans. This stuff is also known by the State of California to cause Rust in Steel Pipes. Fortunately, no Laboratory Animals were harmed by this research project.
