I saw a recent Penn and Teller piece at an envirowacko gathering where they had their appropriately dressed, slim hipped, blonde ask attensees to sign a petition to ban monohydrogen dioxide.

She told the signees it was every where in the enviroment and was used in the products of many industries. She said it is also an air pollutant. She went on and on with brilliant absolutely envirospeak condemantion.

She even got the event host to sign. He was the only signer she told that the petition was to ban water. He had the most sheepish look I have ever seen as the dawining came that he had been had.

I was wondering what was wrong with me. Glad to finally know!

Everyone who comes in contact with bisphenol A will eventually die.

I've decided that the best course of action is to drop everything and run away to a cave, where I can cower in fear until I expire, hopefully from natural causes.

Either that, or I can just ignore these bums.

Too much dihydrogen monoxide can also cause a terminal case of hypoxia as well.

abnormal s*&^% behavior - well relax, these days that probably just means a judeochristian, monogamous, hetero relationship that lasts for life.

Nonsense! I'm a healthy 10 year old who has been exposed to this chemical for all of my life. Now if you will all excuse me I must squeeze through this door to go have lunch, shave, drop a kid, run in circles and have sex with a large kitchen appliance.

It's part of the larger problem of endocrine disrupters, which come from a variety of sources such as plastics that mimic estrogen, phytoestrogens such as in soy, ethinyl estradiol in wastewater treatment effluent, etc.

This may be contributing to the substantial drop in testosterone in men from Massachusetts (http://jcem.endojournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/92/1/196)...

...and may explain certain Democrat politicians:

I will state the obvious. This is connected to the increase in the number of people who are becoming fat.
