    Well it was going along fine until I hit the part about it uses ...
    in cult rituals
    by both the KKK and the NAACP during rallies and marches,
    by the clientele at a number of homosexual bath houses in New York City and San Francisco.
    Too bad cause now they lost all creditability in my eyes, they should of just stayed with the facts.

    We've had discussions here before about DHMO and it is truly terrifying that the use of this substance remains uncontrolled. :surprised

    I personally think the benifits of its use outweigh the risks. DHMO may have the capacity to take life, but research shows life could not have evolved or existed without some quantity of it[/faked-seriousness]

    There's a showtime seriers(or used to be) that featured Penn and Teller ( http://www.sho.com/site/ptbs/home.do ) that discussed this very thing.


    How many people have been killed by DHMO over the years? Sailors have died from exposure to it. Children have die from it. Pets have died from it. When will the madness cease!!!!

    This stuff can kill you any multiple forms also. DHMO has a relatively high freezing point thus forms a solid--which can and has killed people by falling on them!!!.

    DHMO has a low boiling point which can, and has, killed people if they inhale it or simply injure/kill people if their skin is exposed.

    DHMO in its liquid form has killed more people throughout history than smoking!!!

    Stop the insanity.

    There, I've said my peace.

    The corporate tool of the man response. This stuff kills and that's all that matters. Pot kills that's why it is illegal even if there are positive uses. If a substance kills then we need to ban it; afterall, we live in a beautiful politically correct society don't we?

    Carry on.

    Wha would be the "positive uses" of pot...?:eek:

    Its especially dangerous in the frozen condensed form. We can't get rid of it!

    Not to derail this thread, but have you ever watched anyone die from cancer? Have or do you know anyone with severe glocoma. Those are the two main "positive" uses for pot.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Worse yet, this has become the performance enhancing drug of choice for those too intimidated by drug testing to try steroids. Current urinalysis tests don't even test for DHMO!

    There's even an unsubstantiated rumor that prominent members of the USA Women's Soccer Team have used DHMO! Some of the Men's Olympic Basketball Dream Team has also been rumored to use DHMO, but that didn't seem to spark any drive to start testing for it in athletes.

    How the heck do people come up with this stuff? How long do you estimate it would take to put together a site like that? What's the point?
