    Dihydrogen monoxide:

        is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
        contributes to the "greenhouse effect".
        may cause severe burns.
        contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
        accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
        may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
        has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

    Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:

        as an industrial solvent and coolant.
        in nuclear power plants.
        in the production of styrofoam.
        as a fire retardant.
        in many forms of cruel animal research.
        in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
        as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

I saw a video where someone started a petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide, AKA DHMO, and a bunch of people were signing it. They didn't know what it was but it sounded really bad.

Drivers license renewals are sure different since COVID-19. I just got one with my new picture on it 10 days ago. I accidentally crossed my name out too when I crossed out my address and the license number, but that's really me.

I saw that Penn & Teller show but I also saw a guy, a few people maybe, on YouTube collecting signatures on a petition like that. At least I thought I did. The whole Dihydrogen Monoxide parody started in a weekly newspaper in the city of Durand, MI 20 miles from here in 1983. I may have also seen a video of someone else collecting signatures at some point since then, which is what I still think.

I can remember when it was only smart kids who went to college.
A recent study has shown 1 out of 3 liberals are as stupid as the other 2.

Must have been a long time ago. Hell, I went to college!  Didn’t finish, but I went.

I’m as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth.

I went to trade school in my late 40s, and I now have my journeyman papers and make more money now than ever before.
