ok...so you all know that outthere...somewhere...someone will prey on your ignorance, pride etc etc...these are natural human traits that could be abused...but here i want to look at how conditioned we are to fear mongerors.
to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment...its important because it is the same argument that allows so many chemicals into our food...worring also now that unatural food products are classed as natural products...!!!??

im urging people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."...though you directly do not have to sign this, what i want from you is to class how dangerous chemicals like "dihydrogen monoxide' are...from a scale of 1 to 10....1 = not dangerous....10 = very dangerous.

do you think dihydrogen monoxide should be banned??

to explain why it could be banned there are plenty of good reasons, since:

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

please score how dangerous chemicals like this are and that they should be banned...in return i will then attempt to sore your vulnerability of being conditioned....

please answer honestly using the information above, dont look at anyone elses answers....i will tell you your individual scores soon!

peace

Funny. But a point well made, to think critically and do your research without just accepting everything at face value (for example, at least one crucial point left off your list--like what percentage of our bodies is made up of this vital element, and how we would die of dehydration without it).

On the scale I would put it as a 1... but I don't need a score on my gullibility. I think I do just fine figuring out things for myself. Don't like other people evaluating me as they don't know my background or what I'm about by just asking a simple question.

Have Fun !

Okay, it's an old one, but leaving that aside, my answer is: as a sceptic I would check the sources of the information, check out scientific reports on the subject, ignore whatever the media or politicians might be saying (they are known to be very unreliable, especially on scientific issues) and not jump to any immediate conclusions - accepting always that however certain I may be, new information may change my opinion.

Hydrogen is easy H2

Monoxide
Mono = 1

Oxygen is easy O

Answer = H20 = Water

"Dihydrogen monoxide" is water.

Simple research is all that must be done.
Everyone knows the problem is our bodies.
All issues on earth would be solved if we didn't use these flesh vehicles.BAN THEM!
I'll immediately alert Nancy Palosi ! I'll have to use words with more than 3 syllables in order to circumvent her intelligence of course.

Well Done !!!! You are the type of person I would go to for advice on research such as this .

As far as doing research into something like such that is put out there for you...I also would be careful about the research we have access to. The scientific fields are known to be biased at times , in their research, to manipulate results, to further their own agendas.

Research is important for sure. People usually will not take the time to dig to the truth (when it takes digging). Unfortunately, this very example (Di-hydrogen monoxide) of people's gullibility is being used in college classes to create doubt in people who find flaws with "official" stories or accepted science. They know most of you will not dig.

Hey! I'm not a pomp ass! I honestly just don't like people evaluating me. I have seen this before and so I was prepared to answer. Didn't give away anything like other posters did. Just used your scoring and gave an answer.



Jeesh! What you gotta pick on the little guy for
