Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!!!

A freshman 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 vomiting2. it is a major component in acid rain3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state4. accidental inhalation can kill you5. it contributes to erosion6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patientsHe asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical. Forty-three said yes, six were undecided. Only one knew that the chemical was water.The title of his prize winning project was, 'How Gullible Are We?' He feels the conclusion is obvious.
