    Someone from Sweden has no right to point the finger at the US. During the Olympics, the Swedish hockey team was suspected of slipping DHMO into their drinks in order to improve their athletic performance. Crafty move since the Olympic committee never tests for the presence of DHMO in athletes' urine.

    Actually I don't think WADA has ever seen DHMO as a problem. It's not even on their list: http://www.wada-ama.org/rtecontent/document/list_2005.pdf
    Hence, even if the players had been revealed, I guess it would have been pretty hard to judge them officially. On the other hand, their reputations would of course have been damaged for life.

    I recently moved to a new area of the UK, and some new neighbours are telling me that a study a few years ago suggests that my water supply might be contaminated with DHMO. Now I'm not too worried, because apparently they put it in Tesco's own brand Ginger Ale, and I drink a load of that too and nothing ever bad has happened to me, but even so.

    One of my mates who plays Rugby competitively for the region has also admitted to me that she has been putting DHMO in her water bottle before a match, I don't know whether to report her to her coach or not!

    This stuff's getting out of hand!

    DHMO in Ginger Ale? What's happening with our world?!
    This may be even a bigger crisis than I suspected...

    They're hockey players, for crying out loud! It's virtually an open secret. You can pretty well bet the farm that every hockey player missing teeth have been pretty heavy users of DHMO. And they show a noticeable lack of regret:

    I'm a frequent DHMO user and I promise it has done me no harm whatsoever. I know my limit and I can say no when I've had enough. My mental and physical abilities have only improved since I first tried DHMO. I would reccomend it to absolutely anyone, so long as they learn their limits and only take it in the proper manner. There have been deaths related to over-consumption, but none that couldn't have been avoided if only the public were better educated on the risks. The substance itself is not the problem (in fact it is safer and harder to misuse than alcohol and can infact reduce the risks from alcohol over-consumption if used together), but simply carelessness and lack of education. I want to see DHMO in every household in the world within my lifetime.

    You're using the same old excuses that DHMO users have used for years. Just because it doesn't cause you any harm doesn't mean that it can't be dangerous. I nearly ended up in hospital earlier this year due to a high presence of DHMO in my local area, which I was not aware of.

    You say you want it in every household, but far too many households in the past few years (even in the UK) have had levels of DHMO so high that they've been forced to relocate until the level subsides. While you say you think education is the key, it can only help so far, - sometimes DHMO contaminates peoples homes through no fault of their own, and through no fault of anyone else (the water companies etc), and it's situations like this where DHMO is at its most dangerous, and where education will do absolutely no good at all.

    I was talking about controlled use. Comparing purified DHMO for personal use and naturally occuring 'raw' DHMO is rather meaningless. Raw DHMO has only forced people to relocate when present in quantities many times greater than the purified stocks that people will keep in their homes. Naturally occring DHMO is a problem I'll admit. It and its many impurities can cause illness or death. It is something that we'll have to live with however. Studies have shown DHMO is a nessecary part of ecosystems- experimental and observational data have shown that DHMO depleted rivers and lakes support few or no fish, and their beds can become overrun with plants unable to support the vareity of insect larvae a healty river should have. Complete removal of DHMO from our watercourses, even if it were possible, would be an ecological disaster.

    I'm pretending I'm not too late.

    This stuff was, I believe, the majority portion of the toxic swill that ate at the arms and legs of the rescuers down in New Orleans after Katrina hit. All that fertilizer, kitchen chemicals, pipe uncloggers, was nothing compared to THIS stuff.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
    Why are you taking seourisly.The CIA = EPA :rofl: Why do conspricay thoerist does that kind of stuff.
    The always do that.If you watched the episode of Mythbuster where doing the FBI ice bullets.They sent a letter to the FBI and the FBI basically said "Were not going coment on this" they thought that they were saying"we have but were not going to tell you".They did the test and turns it wasn't ture.
    He doens't say the reserachers names and the reserches of what.
    I have my own conclusion: That Tom Way is a crazy PETA eviromentalist and he wants people become aware of DHMO so he made this up to make the goverment look like that being run by non-enviromentlist so that people will start voting for Greens.
    Also any Consipracy site that says "Draw you own Conclusions" is not ture
    On more thing that very funny:
    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
    They're saying that EPA isn't doing anything about DHMO and the have loose affliton with them?:confused: :rofl: :rofl
    It gets worst it contamentis our oceans, lakes etc. and I herd comes in rain and contaiments plants and animals
    but wait what is Dihydrogen monoxide?
    Think 2 hydrgones and one oxygen think:It's H2O water
    I can't belevie anyone taking seorisly.Water doesn't have any negtive effect enviroment and the EPA is not going study the health of water.
    It looks like a hoax.I almost fell for it.I hope we can clean the contamtion really soon.
    You are aware of this right.

    Seriously, I've noticed there seems to be a big difference between how easily satire is recognized (and also how well it is appreciated) in different parts of the world. I guess it's really a European thing, right?
    Some weeks ago I tried to start a satiric thread in the Politics and World Affairs section about US invading Mexico, but to my suprise people (mostly non-european) instead took me literally, and started call me crazy and so on...and before I knew it the thread was locked by the (non-european) mentors who appearantly didn't get the satire either...

    If that is a joke it wasn't funny:grumpy: Maybe canada but not Mexico.And you posted in P&WA everthing in fourm should seouris post it into GD if it isn't
    The Dihydrogen monoxide joke was taking seousisly by some polticans in califroina they tried ban it.It's hard to see it as a joke it just sounds bad.
