Statistics show it's pretty much over 70% of the globe now.

If we banned the dihydrogen monoxide, booms, tillers, cup holders, and cabins, could we now remove the lifelines?

It's not the water that kills you.



















It's the lack of air!

There's a website that outlines the known dangers of this hazardous substance.  For instance: 

 

 

  • Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
  • Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
  • Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
  • DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
  • Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
  • Contributes to soil erosion.
  • Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
  • Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
  • Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
  • Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
  • Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S. *
  • Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

* I read that the federal government and state officials verified that great quantities of this shit had turned up during the cleanup efforts subsequent to hurricane Sandy tearing up the Jersey shore, as well. 

 

 

And finally, there is this damning revalation:

 

A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence in our country's schools, including infamous shootings in high schools in Denver and Arkansas, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved.  In fact, DHMO is often very available to students of all ages within the assumed safe confines of school buildings. None of the school administrators with which we spoke could say for certain how much of the substance is in use within their very hallways.

Budweiser is about 95% dihydrogen oxide. Don't even think about drinking the stuff; it can kill you!
