    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 in a gas form.
    * 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 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.

    Nope, because I'm dihydrogen monoxide addict, and proud.

    Isn't DHMO just CO2?

    Ban CO2?

    Nah, I like my sodas, even if it slowly kills me.

    human beings have been dependant on this chemical for years.

    Why would anyone want to ban it?

    People die because they drink much soda. I love my soda. Once or twice a day is enough.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide

    Tri = 3
    Di = 2
    Mono = 1

    2 hydrogens - 1 Oxygen

    CO2 (Carbon Dioxide)

    1 carbon - 2 oxygen

    Not the same thing...

    Jeanie still nobody's bitch V.I.P. Lifetime

    dihydrogen = 2 hydrogens =H2

    monoxide = one oxygen = O

    think about it for a minute.

    p.s. you almost had me there, chuck.
