Science Fair Prize Winner

Author:Author unknown, Issue: November 2000, Topic: Humour

A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons, since:

  • It can cause excessive sweating and vomiting.
  • It is a major component in acid rain.
  • It can cause severe burns in its gaseous state.
  • Accidental inhalation can kill you.
  • It contributes to erosion.
  • It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients.

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical. Forty-three (43) said yes, six (6) were undecided, and the last one? Well, only one (1) knew that the chemical, dihydrogen monoxide, was water (H2O).
