Where's the EPA on this? Apparently, this stuff is everywhere, but I haven't heard one word on its dangers until now. Christine Whitman, be slient no longer!

DoublePost! Damn, I'm sorry. I hit post just as I noticed Matt's (new?) double-post warning system. I suck.

Ah yes. Complete lameness disguised as humor rears it's head again. Hey jpoulos, why not just link to The Onion like every other moron on the 'net?

And I nearly spit out my entire mouthful of Dihydrogen Monoxide, too!

Ah yes. Adolescent insecurity disguised as cutting sarcasm rears it's head again.

Hey! I don't care if it's old news or not! This is the first time it's come to my attention.

We've got to do something to stop this! It's in our food, for gods sakes. This stuff gets sprayed on almost every single agricultural crop you can name. I don't know about you, but I don't want this stuff on my food.

What about the children?

What about the children?

I totally immersed my child in a big vat of the stuff last night without even thinking about it! I'm suing somebody!

Abortion clinics, "elite athletes," and yes, even at Columbine. The scourge is rampant.

Seems like a big waste of time, though, to make such a complex site devoted to farce. Eh...too much time on their hands.

My favorite part was the banner bar for Acme Klein Bottles, which I always thought were a Reemco product, but apparantly not!

"Acme Klein Bottles" are the brainchild of Cliff Stoll. Yes, that Cliff Stoll.

What really pisses me off is that there's growing evidence that ruthless corporations are dumping large amounts of DHMO into our polychlorinated biphenyl supply... toothless EPA bastards oughta be doing something!!!

am i the only one who caught the line at the bottom : "note: content veracity not implied."? he's taking no responsibility for his truthfulness while he merrily throws around scare speech? what the hell.

according to the FAQ, we homosexuals use it in bathhouses for...something (i haven't the foggiest what, poppers, maybe). and, oh lookie : to be listed with such fine company as the KKK, pedophiles, pornographers, hitler, and milosevic. sheer bliss.

this guy's a headjob.

Hm... I'm trying to decide if you're joking, patricking. It's worth noting that I sent that link out in an email to about 8 friends, with a fake note of alarm ("DHMO is everywhere; the EPA is toothless- Bush is in the tank to the DHMO industries!") and no one has gotten the joke.... *sigh*
