    They forgot about how Dihydrogen Monoxide accumulates in large, precipitating cloud formations which can damage hair do’s, especially when associated with wind.

    Considering how this may adversely affect the luxuriant hair club for scientists, I would have though it a part of the potential hazards.

    I enjoy knowing the LD50 of this compound, you can never be too careful!

    If you need this chemical and are having trouble finding it, you can substitute it with any of the following:

    OXYGEN DIHYDRIDE

    HYDROGEN HYDROXIDE

    Appreciable quantities of DHMO has been found in ghetto residents’ urine.

    dhmo is water. end of.

      Yawn!

  • alongernamethanneeded

    Rescent events in Fukushima Japan proves that DHMO can even cause melt down in nuclear plants. A warning should be issued.

    Mostly Harmless.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide. Dhmo consists of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. That’s right guys! Dihydrogen monoxide is H2O, or water. It’s a HOAX! Kudos to all that caught it. For those that didn’t…sorry.
