    H2O: Dangerous Chemical!
    A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons, since:


    it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
    it is a major component in acid rain
    it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
    accidental inhalation can kill you
    it contributes to erosion
    it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
    it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

    He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
    The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"


    Forty-three (43) said yes,
    six (6) were undecided,
    and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.

    He feels the conclusion is obvious.
    This was found on the newsgroup: rec.humor.funny
    Why do people not know what water is? Better yet how do people not know what water is? (...I fear the answers to these questions...)

    Okay well first I gotta start off by saying hello all you crazy ACers its been awhile.
    Alright now it was brought to my attention a few months back the existence of and add-on thing for web browsers called stumble and you get this stumble and click the button and it take you random places this is just one of the nifty things I found with Stumble... and the stumble button is addicting...
    THE MANY USES FOR VODKA.

    To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. The solvent dissolves adhesive
    To clean the caulking around bathtubs and showers, fill a trigger-spray bottle with vodka, spray the caulking, let set five minutes and wash clean. The alcohol in the vodka kills mold and mildew.
    Clean jewelry. Soak the jewelry in vodka for five minutes, then rinse, and dry.
    Clean lipstick from clothing. Rub the stain with vodka, then throw into your regular wash.
    Remove the glue left behind by a bumper sticker. Rub the glue with a soft, clean cloth soaked with vodka
    Prolong the life of razors by filling a cup with vodka and letting your safety razor blade soak in the alcohol after shaving. The vodka disinfects the blade and prevents rusting.
    Spray vodka on vomit stains, scrub with a brush, then blot dry.
    Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.
    Add a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from hair, and stimulates the growth of healthy hair.
    Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle and spray bees or wasps to kill them.


    Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a Ziplock freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshable ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.
    Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly packed lavender flowers, fill the jar with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set in the sun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter, then apply the tincture to aches and pains.
    To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.
    To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.
    vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.
    Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.
    Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.
    Soothe a sore throat. Add a tablespoon of vodka to glass of warm water and gargle. The alcohol helps numb the sore throat.

    Eliminate swimmer's ear. If you don't have rubbing alcohol, fill an ear dropper with vodka, and squeeze it into the affected ear, then let it drain out.
    ..........
    I though this was cool.. here I thought vodka was for drinking only but it turns out I was wrong...

    TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN (2001-911)
    Two thousand one, nine eleven
    Three thousand plus arrive in heaven
    As they pass through the gate,
    Thousands more appear in wait
    A bearded man with stovepipe hat
    Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat"
    They settle down in seats of clouds
    A man named Martin shouts out proud
    "I have a dream!" and once he did
    The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."
    Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
    Others in khaki, and green then say
    "We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
    The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."
    From a man on sticks one could hear
    "The only thing we have to fear.
    The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
    trust us sir, we've passed that test."
    "Courage doesn't hide in caves
    You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
    The Newcomers had heard this voice before
    A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores
    A silence fell within the mist
    Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
    Meant time had come for her to say
    What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day
    "Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
    Watched our children play in sports
    Worked our gardens, sang our songs
    Went to church and clipped coupons
    We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought
    Unlike you, great we're not"
    The tall man in the stovepipe hat
    Stood and said, "Don't talk like that!
    Look at your country, look and see
    You died for freedom, just like me"
    Then, before them all appeared a scene
    Of rubbled streets and twisted beams
    Death, destruction, smoke and dust
    And people working just 'cause they must
    Hauling ash, lifting stones,
    Knee deep in hell, but not alone
    "Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
    Side by side helping their fellow man!"
    So said Martin, as he watched the scene
    "Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."
    Down below three firemen raised
    The colors high into ashen haze
    The soldiers above had seen it before
    On Iwo Jima back in '45
    The man on sticks studied everything closely
    Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
    "I see pain, I see tears,
    I see sorrow -- but I don't see fear."
    "You left behind husbands and wives
    Daughters and sons and so many lives
    are suffering now because of this wrong
    But look very closely. You're not really gone.
    All of those people, even those who've never met you
    All of their lives, they'll never forget you
    Don't you see what has happened?
    Don't you see what you've done?
    You've brought them together, together as one.
    With that the man in the stovepipe hat said
    "Take my hand," and from there he led
    three thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
    On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven

    Koga rules! He's honest, dedicated, and determined. He would have to be reincarnated. (I agree Kuwabara, only the main/important characters need broght back.)

    Off Topic: FM, if your gonna call people names, and freak about your favorite character, give a reason. If all you're going to do is waste space, and try to start an arguement(flame smilies do that...) I may resort to deleting your posts. This will be your only warning.
