Water Is Dangerous

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. 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
E. rt decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
I rt has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
43) said yes,
sot (6) were undecided,
and only one (l) knew that the chemical was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Bumble Are We?"
He feels the conclusion is obvious

Want to know how I knew it was water? The title says "'Water' Is Dangerous"

For people who don't understand:
those are the accepted chemical formulas for water.

H2O = HOH

Di(2)Hydrogen Mono(1)xide

Chem was in my opinion the easiest unit next to physics..

My philosophy teacher asked once: would you release upon the world a machine that kills an estimate of 450.000 deaths per year and whose fuel is pricey and harmful to the Atmosphere? My friend immediately said "no, of course not". He said: "congratulations, you just condemned the Car."
User avatar #66 - satanisthesavior (12/03/2009) [-]
di - two
hydrogen - well duh, hydrogen
mono - one
oxide - oxygen

two hydrogen one oxygen = H2O, a.k.a. Water... LOL

Hello global warming HOAX
#40 to #36 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
Global climate change: Been happenin for years. No biggie now.

Let me tell you something. When Leaf Erikson first went to Greenland, he named it greenland because of all the farms. You can't farm in greenland now. The crops would all die, because IT IS SO COLD. The climates been changing rapidly for centurys, perhaps since forever. You can't possibly say that we are causing it or making it rapider if studies have only recently begun. You tell me that youre computers calculated it? Well why the hell should we believe it? Computers are programed by humans, and therefore can show us any data we want. If we want people to believe we're causing it, we'll show all the anomalies in our data, and we'll scare everyone.


ITS NOT REAL. GET OVER IT.

Uhh, no you ******** , learn some science maybe? eh? that might be a good thing? not some propagandarised ********
#43 to #40 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
hey reatard. he called it greenland to get people to go there instead of iceland.

ummmm carbon build up is VERY real. it is tested, PROVEN that the greenhouse gasses are blanketing the Earth. greenhouse gases aren't named greenhouse cause some scientist liked that word; it acts like a greenhouse, trapping in heat
User avatar #55 to #44 - altech (12/03/2009) [-]
More carbon has been sent up into the air by the eruption of any major volcano (including but not limited to Krakatoa, Mount St. Helens, Pompeii, or the Yellowstone National Park Super-volcano) than by our fossil fuel emissions. Also you must realize that any substance that acts as insulation keeps things both in, and out. So while more heat does get trapped in our atmosphere, less heat enters it to begin with as well.

Did you know that the magnetic polarity of the Earth is changing, so within the next couple hundred years North will become South and vice versa. Also if you want a cause to get behind, look up the Yellowstone Park Volcano. What you find will shock you.
#46 to #44 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
actually if the ozone is gone and atmosphere depleted it would get colder. The heat is first sent to earth and a small amount remains. Then when the heat that got reflected back up will hit ozone/atmosphere/whatever and get sent back down. if thats gone the only heat will be the little tat doesnt get sent back up. My old 7th grade science teacher said this many many years ago. She was best science teacher ever.
#50 to #40 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
Leif ericason named it greenland becaue he wanted all of the other countries to go their when they started expanding. and named the smaller more tropical island iceland so the other countries would not go their.

learn some history before you start spouting made up **** .
the internet hates you.
you fail.
#57 to #50 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
when the crap did all the people who look at funnyjunk become so freaking good at science???
#91 to #40 - godwillcry **User deleted account** (12/03/2009) [-]
first off. leaf erikson deiscovered the leaf strait. he didn't name it greenland. and ice land ice land. the vikings did to trick people to go to greenland rather than ice land.
#56 to #40 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
Actually he named it Greenland is covered with ice. Iceland is beautiful. He named Iceland that so no one would go they would all want to go to Greenland. Learn your facts idiot!
#45 to #40 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
There used to be huge Glaciers in greenland, but then human computers made them start receding dramatically each year.

learned about this in school, i feel sorry that some people are under educated in a sense :(
User avatar #93 - Zane (12/03/2009) [-]
Well, its Idaho, all they do is grow potatoes. How were they supposed to know dihydrogen monoxide is water?
#92 - BigBossAlak (12/03/2009) [-]
WOW THAT SCHOOL IS FULL OF IDIOTS TO NOT KNOW DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE IS WATER. YOU CAN BREAK IT DOWN DI IS A PREFIX FOR 2 HYDROGEN, H2, MONO IS A PREFIX FOR 1 OXIDE, O. H2O

C'mon, we're talking about high school students here.

This year in science we had the same question

#59 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
xD i already knew it was water, we were actually learning this in Chemistry a couple days ago
#62 to #59 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
same here because di is 2 and h20 is the same is di and mono is one so i would have said no
#63 to #62 - ifuckinhateniggers **User deleted account** (12/03/2009) [-]
that made no sense what so ever
#65 to #62 - Razorbackist **User deleted account** (12/03/2009) [-]

It took me awhile to get it, because I'm latin, LOL
Monoxide: O
Dihydrogen: H2

i gave a speech about this in class and got 60 students to sign a petition and had a debate going before i lost it and busted out laughing. In a college class. holy **** .
i had some more awesome facts:
Hundreds of people Die each year after prolonged exposure to it's solid form
It is believed to have been a key component in the failure of the levees at Katrina
And it is highly addictive. One dose can have you so hooked that withdrawal often proves fatal!
and yet it is commonly employed as a cleaning product in DAYCARE CENTERS!
Etc. I fear for our future generations...
#53 to #6 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
it has also been found in the H1N1 virus, that one should make these idiots panic
#33 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
It's all funny and stuff until you get to chemistry and learn that the real word for water is HOH which is Hydrogen Hydroxide.
User avatar #35 to #33 - OneHundredandFifty (12/03/2009) [-]
except this would be a little too obvious and more than 1 person would know the chemical is water
#38 to #33 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
no, its bihydrogen monoxide. im taking chemisrtry.
User avatar #54 to #38 - altech (12/03/2009) [-]
It's 'di'hydrogen monoxide. Di, not bi, di. Bing it if you become confused. Or maybe you made a mistake while bringing up boring chemistry facts, if so I'm sincerely sorry.
#60 to #54 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
"Di" Still means "Two" Altech.
#77 to #60 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
SHUT UP ALL OF YOU
GOD its like chemistry class all over again >.<
#49 to #38 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
dihydrogen also works because the "Di" prefix also means 2
#47 to #38 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
H2O, problem solved
#13 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
seriously who is retarded anough not to know that?
#14 to #13 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
12-years olds, hicks from the south and you... just admit you didnt know so we can all go home.
User avatar #23 to #14 - supersparta (12/03/2009) [-]
Dude, I'm 12, and I knew it was water right when it said dihydrogen monoxide. Unlike every other kid these days, I spend most of my time in the library reading non-fiction books. I more than half of the 6th grade year in the library.
#27 to #23 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
when i was 12 i liked boobs, just sayin................
#51 to #27 - Rascal (12/03/2009) [-]
you also clearly got lots of them as clearly demonstrated by your presence on this site

ok fine the us is just stupid all round

Americans.

Try something like this in Europe, I sure as **** know you won't get similar results.
#20 to #16 - Lord Teneva (12/03/2009) [-]
Exactly, NO RESULTS. All you Eurofags are too busy practicing blow jobs and butt sex to sign petitions.
