Could be worse...could be Trihydrogen Dioxide!

fortunately, i am the child of a scientist, so my parents were acutely aware of the overwhelming presence of dihydrogen monoxide in our environment, and they had the forsight to introduce it to my diet in trace amounts from early on. believe it or not, i am now at the point where i can consume it in large quantities without any ill effects.

Is it this that makes you the person you are today?
Should we take this as a dreadful warning?
Or is this the way forward for all right-thinking parents who want an alternative to gentetic alterations to their offspring?

apologies for the use of an emoticon, which seems to be in an unpopular action just now, but I think it is justified in this case!

Good grief, Caradea, next you'll have us bathing in it!

I was absolutely terrified to read about this dangerous substance, which appears to go unregulated (the page even had a link to the agency I work for, which seems to do nothing about this matter) and which is present in so many aspects of our lives. I was greatly relieved to find, hidden away at the bottom of the home page, the following:

Thank heavens!

Thanks Max for alerting us to this danger. I did some research locally to find out if my company uses the stuff and what procedures they have in place. I was horrified to find they have a huge open store of the stuff right outside my window, AND they let the local bird population swim on it. That explains the large number of feathers on the grass round this storage facility. Some of my rave-scene friends have told me that if you add some alcohol to this stuff it can give you a buzz, but that sounds dangerous to me.

I know that if you snort it too much, it will likely kill you.

Laugh if you will, but small quantities of a form of this substance have reportedly exploded with devastating force in at least three continents, and in the Pacific. Hell will freeze over before I go near it.

you naturally think that these things can't happen to you, but my home town (aptly named Devil's Lake) is in real danger of being wiped off the map because the lake is polluted with this stuff.
