Dihydrogen Monoxide: The Deadly Killer

I’ve been reading up and trying to get my environmental awareness into gear. With the planet crumbling all around us, it’s time we made a stand and stopped scientists and mega corporations from ruining our Earth with their foul chemical compounds.

One such chemical is apparently among the worst: Dihydrogen Monoxide.

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

  • 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.

So, get out there and fight! Stop DHMO before it stops you.

Now, I’m off to get a drink of water. Fighting for the environment is thirsty work!

    you are being stranger than usual. Must be something in the water.

    It’s definitely a killer. It must be stopped! 😉

    Hmm I think the experts are all wet on this one.

    When I worked at an observatory, we used a DHMO compound that was cut with benzene to clean the large telescope mirrors. I was the only one who used a respirator and industrial gloves when it was my turn to clean them. One bozo, an idiot named Dan Snyder….that’s DAN SNYDER…used to drink it because it was like 130% alcohol….a kick that also more than doubles the promise of cancer. Darwin in action.

    Isn’t it just water?
    DMHO Di = 2 Hydrous = H Mono = 1 Oxide = O H20

    Never mind… I just read your last sentence. I’m skulking off to stick my head in some DMHO.

  7. Ric The Schmuck says:

    I like a little DMHO with my Scotch, single malt…

  8. Karan says:

    It must have been something in addition to DHMO…I knew that. Please note that the story about Dan Snyder is true, it was very late and I had a lovely glass of red wine inside….me.

    Ya…but fill a big tub with really warm Dihydrogen Monoxide with some bubbles…it’s just dreamy!
