    Be on the lookout for Dihydrogen Monoxide

    Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

    Despite the known dangers of DHMO, it continues to be used daily by industry, government, and even in private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. Some of the well-known uses of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
    • as an industrial solvent and coolant,
    • in nuclear power plants,
    • by the U.S. Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels,
    • elite athletes to improve performance,
    • in the production of (polystyrene)
    • in biological and chemical weapons manufacture,
    • as a spray-on fire suppressant and retardant...
    DHMO is also known as.........look it up if you don't already know the answer might suprise you

    Oh crap, I just drank a huge glass of DHMO. Am I going to be ok? Do I need to seek immediate medical advice? Call poison control? Do I induce vomiting? Oh crap, I am so scared right now. Someone help me!

    Normally I wouldn't be too afraid of this, but the Dihydrogen Monoxide I am currently consuming is from the city of Detroit. Which causes me to worry a bit.

    I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, Don't even act like I didn't buy a doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".
