I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought it should be posted somewhere. I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE. Can you believe this?

The Peril of Dihydrogen Monoxide

There is a dangerous chemical compound present in almost all facets of our lives, Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO).

DHMO is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people every year, usually by inhalation. A few of those who have managed to escape death are sometimes handicapped with severe, permanent brain damage. Even small amounts can cause obstruction of one’s airways, accompanied by severe coughing. Contact with DMSO can accelerate life-threatening conditions such as hypothermia. Contact with DMSO in its gaseous state can cause severe burns.

This compound is used in many diverse applications. It is used as an industrial solvent and nuclear power plant coolant. Yet even baby food is found to have extremely high quantities of DHMO.

Application of DHMO to ferrous metals will accelerate severe degradation of the atomic structure. It is necessary to spend billions of dollars each year to apply specialized chemical coatings in a desperate attempt to slow the corrosive action of DHMO in bridges, automobiles, and other structures.

Fortunately, some materials are relatively unaffected by DHMO. Billions of gallons of this compound is transported on public roads daily in specialized containers similar to those used to contain sulfuric acid, mercury and hydrofluoric acid. Certain materials used in the refinement of plutonium are also unaffected by DMSO.

This chemical is so pervasive, that significant amounts can be found in almost everything living today. Large quantities of DHMO have even been found in such remote and unspoiled areas as the Arctic and Antarctic. DHMO is a primary constituent of acid rain. Continued application of DHMO has completely wiped out an entire growing season of many cash crops and has killed livestock.

The United States Navy spends billions of dollars every year in to assure control of immense quantities of DHMO. This practice is not only encouraged by the Pentagon, but also has enthusiastic support among most of our elected officials.

We need to stop this insanity. At this point, it may not be possible to turn back. If you are as alarmed as we are, Write to your elected officials immediately.

Hahaha. You all are just too smart.

Oh well, it's an oldie but a goodie. Every several years I unleash it again. It still catches a few people here and there.

Happy April Fools to all my friends at Bike Forums!
