  • Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO): Get The Facts

    Posted by Michael Hiteshew on January 11th, 2006 (All posts by )

    Following up on Shannon’s post below, a long overdue assessment on the dangers of DHMO contamination in our environment.

    Pretty scary. One point they didn’t mention; despite it’s obviously dangerous nature and chemical persistence, the Clean Water Act makes absolutely NO reference to DHMO contamination in our rivers, lakes and reservoirs! Studies have shown you and your children are drinking water contaminated with DHMO. Be a proactive citizen. Act now. Ban DHMO. Your children will thank you.

      I just ordered special protective footware to deal with DHMO.

      This site was featured on an episode of Showtime’s Penn and Teller: Bullshit! about 2 years ago. They even got folks to sign a petition to have DHMO banned.

    3. Charlie Quidnunc Says:

      As a resident of Seattle, where we have seen obnoxious DHMO falling from the sky for 23 days straight, I can only endorse the damaging effects of this terrifying chemical onslaught.

    4. LotharBot Says:

      You know, chel, there are whole websites devoted to gear designed to protect from DHMO.

    5. ATM Says:

      And DHMO is a greenhouse gas. I demand that DHMO restrictions be added to Kyoto to save us from the impending Global Warming catastrophe.

    6. Mitch Says:

      I would be cautious, though, about calling for an outright ban. I myself am conducting an extensive study of the beneficial effects of solid DHMO on amber or brown liquids.

    7. Doug Sundseth Says:

      It’s not just the DHMO, ODH (oxygen dihydride) is just as dangerous, just as prevalent, and just as underreported.

    8. LotharBot Says:

      Get your facts straight. Hydrogen Hydroxide is the real threat!

    9. ATM Says:

      No, you too are wrong. Hydroxic acid is far worse than hydrogen hydroxide. It is the principal component of acid rain.

      You are a buncha goofballs

      Some people call it the universal solution. I call it the universal problem
