Anything other than 1? Water does have its dangers (i.e. drowning, the destruction of a tsunami, etc.)...so there is a great deal of room for individual opinion/discretion for anyone attempting to assign a 1-10 rating.

I heard the Pakistanis got their hands on some of this stuff. We need our military to intervene ASAP.

Its not really gullibility you are testing, but education level. Not everyone took chemistry, and not everyone that took it got a passing grade.

as an additive to food products, including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups, carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices
in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,
in spray-on oven cleaners,
in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom products,
in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,
as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,
in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,
in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad,
in Formula One race cars, although its use is regulated by the Formula One Racing Commission, and
as a target of ongoing NASA planetary and stellar research.

I dont know too much of it and see it has pros and cons so I give it a 5

Dihydrogen monoxide is H2O. I like water. Water is good.


Wasn't this done at a high school science fair to prove a point?
I know the MP of New Zealand received a letter about how dangerous dihydrogen monoxide is.
It is astonishing how gullible educated people can be. Maybe too smart for their own good in this
case. Just because a word sounds intimidating and like it could be evil, doesn't mean it's a bad
thing.


Here's a Snopes article about it.

Lets Ban Water

I got it. I aced chemistry. I just think that if you say you are testing "gullibility" you actually should be. In this case, you are testing someones education. Only someone with some education in chemistry would recognize it phrased that way.

And I suppose the OPs point is that those who didnt know what it was should research it before forming an opinion, which I kind of agree with. But, virtually everything we think we "know" is actually just hearsay, and we all rely to a very large degree on trusting the people around us not to lie to us or trick us.

(There are some great philosophical arguments to this effect.)

So, because those who didnt "fall for it" tend to be those who know some chemistry, and those who did tend to be those who didnt, you really arent testing gullibility. You are testing knowledge.

Those who didnt fall for this may in fact be a lot more gullible than those who did fall for it, in situations where they DONT know the answer.

As a science geek, my first response is to ask why you want to ban water

My second response is to say, "Ohhhh. Good one!"
