Water On The Brain

The city of Aliso Viejo, California, scheduled a city council vote meant to ban the use of any product by the city that is made with or contains water, believing water to be a dangerous and toxic substance. It seems that the esteemed members of the city government were panicked by some spoof Internet website [perhaps http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html) which calls for the banning of DHMO (Dihydrodgen Monoxide) while listing all its dangers. Dihydrodgen Monoxide is the scientific name for water. Dangers listed at the site include:

- Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO [Drowning]

- Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage. [Frostbite]

- Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.

- DHMO is a major component of acid rain.

- Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns. [Steam]

- Contributes to soil erosion.

- Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals. [Rust]

- Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.

- Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.

- Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions. [All cells contain water]

- Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere. [Severe weather]

- Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

Many people would like to be kind to others so Leftists exploit that with their nonsense about equality. Most people want a clean, green environment so Greenies exploit that by inventing all sorts of far-fetched threats to the environment. But for both, the real motive is to promote themselves as wiser and better than everyone else, truth regardless.
