Penn And Teller Get Hippies To Sign Water Banning Petition-(BAN DiHydrogen Monoxide!!)
YouTube ^ | 7-30-07 | supersteve9219

Penn and Teller make fools of the moonbat crowd, by getting HUNDREDS at an Erth Day Fest to sign a petition banning "Dihydrogen Monoxide"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi3erdgVVTw

It shows how most of the moonbat crowd is ignorant, uninformed, and will support ANYTHING as long as it "feels good"...

I saw this yesterday. It is hysterical and makes a great point. Hot Air posted it as a companion piece to a video of Shep of FNC ranting about global warming deniers. Perfect comeback to Shep.

You really shouldn’t be so flippant. More people have died from immersion in DiHydrogen Monoxide than any other chemical. The stuff is deadly.

We shouldn’t laugh too hard.

The Global Warming crowd have managed to get Carbon Dioxide labeled as a “Pollutant” with no one challenging the fact.

Of course, if we eradicated CO2, which is what we try to do with all pollutants, we would all DIE.

CO2 is a fundamental component of photosynthesis.

No Photosynthesis - no plants and trees, you can figure out the rest....

So lets eradicate that pesky pollutant, shall we?

It can dissolve metal and is responsible for hundreds of deaths every year.

Mandrake, have you never wondered why I drink only pure grain alcohol? It's because I gave up distilled water and rain water after finding out that even they were contaminating my precious bodily fluids with dihydrogen monoxide.

It’s even deadly in it’s solid state. The substance has been implicated as a major contributing factor in thousands of fatal vehicle deaths and slip and fall injuries.

It’s also a major component of most industrial solvents and one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas.

Dihydrogen monoxide vapor constitutes Earth’s most significant greenhouse gas, accounting for about 95% of Earth’s greenhouse effect. Interestingly, many “facts and figures’ regarding global warming completely ignore the powerful effects of dihydrogen monoxide vapor in the greenhouse system.

Once upon a time the MRI “Magnetic Resonance Imaging’ was known as the NMR Imaging “Nuclear Magnetic Resonance” Imaging. I always thought the radiologists were cowards for changing that.

Recently, a major US city in the South was severely contaminated by a DMHO spill. It had to be evacuated and the cleanup is gonna cost billions.

It is also toxic when ingested. I think the lethal dose for an adult is 6 gallons.

Other clothing and equipment: Use heat protective garment when exposed to large quantities of heated vapor.


IX. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautionary statements:

Compound readily exists in all three phases at atmospheric pressure. Phase changes occur over a narrow (100oC/212oF) temperature range.
Compound is known as “the universal solvent” and does dissolve, at least to some extent, most common materials.
Compound will conduct electricity when dissolved ionic solutes are present.
Other handling and storage requirements:

A high pressure containment vessel should be used for the vapor at high temperatures.
Do not allow filled, closed containers to solidify as compound expands upon freezing.

I didn't watch the clip, but did you know that every single person on this Earth who has died had detectable amounts of dihydrogen monoxide in their bodies? My God! That must mean the stuff is deadly to life as we know it! Ahhhhh!

I used to like P and T, despite their atheism. But when they started attacking all believers (and called Mother Theresa a “c*nt”), that was it for me. I’ve never watched another episode.

Having just gone through Right To Know MSDS training for work, this is the best!

I would note that there is an effect to skin from acute overexposure: wrinkles appear, commonly known as “prune skin.”

To be technically correct, Monooxide does not Exist as an Element. The correct term is “DiHydrogenMonoOxygen.” But it is still hilarious and funny no Chemist picked up on it.

Best way around that is to call it by its other name, to wit, hydrogen hydroxide. Hydrogen is, after all, in the same group as sodium, and I'm sure everyone knows how dangerous NaOH is...

Yep, that really sounds lethal!but the two Hydrogen molecules each seperately bond to the Oxygen molecule.That Sodium Hydroxide is wicked, it can kill you evenwhen you cant have any of it or worse when you have too much. It’s amazing that the Greenies really has a strong herding instinct.

I didn’t hear them mention that dihydrogen monoxide is about twenty times more significant than carbon dioxide, as a greenhouse gas. That little tidbit probably would have really freaked them out.
