Dihydrogen monoxide

I went to bed early last night and catch up on sleep. It feels good! Yesterday I was told to relocate by Tuesday (after being told not to worry about it two days ago). You know how I feel about all that, so I won't rehash it.

It's Friday today and looks like the weekend will be quite warm but not hot. What a relief to both Friday and decent weather!

From my E-Mail
A warning
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 over-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 death.

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.

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. In the midwest alone DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage.

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 "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 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.


Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don't know CAN hurt you and others throughout the world.

Can you guess what this dangerous substance is?

(Note: Dihydrogen monoxide is another way of saying H20, or just plain water)
Be sure to drink your eight glasses of Dihydrogen monoxide or hydric acid today!
Have a good Friday and a great weekend!

Who would have thought that the seemingly innocent water could pose such a powerful threat to our well being! I've never liked the way it sits there all see-through and smug like that.

Hey, you got your picture up in the profile! I haven't been around (to most blogs actually). My old old computer is really showing its age. Right now I've stablized it but it might go back into a coma again any moment!
I'll be back later. So's I can find out what the first part of your post is referring to.

The HGS would agree that water is bad for you... he has such an aversion to water and cleanliness!
Where are you relocating to? I seemed to have missed that bit.
I hope that you week goes smoothly
