    Post Dihydrogen monoxide

    As some background, Dihyrdrogen monoxide has been found in nearly every food item across the US and Europe. It has been found that global warming is not only melting the ice cap, but resulting in more dihydrogen monoxide being released into the environment. It has not only been found in the coastal areas of North America and Europe, but interior regions have also found quite a bit of this chemical as well. It has been shown that kids are getting increasing amounts of dihyrdrogen monoxide in their system every time they drink something. Urine samples from children in elementary schools has been found to have notable quantities of dihydrogen monoxide. It is believed that this has gotten into the lakes and rivers and thus is making its way to the crops in the fields and eventually to humans.



    I'm curious to see how this poll turns out. Please be careful with your comment so as not to further influence the poll results.



    Thanks!

    Brad!

    Re: Dihydrogen monoxide

    In view of the seriousness of Brad's post #1, I've had some soil samples from my garden tested. The tests reveal that every sample showed at least the presence of this. Crikey!

    Where is the poll? I wanted to vote for Taylor Swift.

    The poll should still be on this thread. It wasn't given a timeout....

    And I believe Taylor Swift is full of dihydrogen monoxide as well. I'd expect she is somewhat addicted to it at this point.

    Yep, I finally scrolled up and saw it. It was a moment even greater than when Cornelis Drebbel discovered the microscope.
    There he was walking along. He kicked over a rock and there was the first microscope.....

    I thought there would have been more than 3 votes in the poll.......

    A bit surprising that more people didn't/haven't chimed in. Too many big words I guess....
