    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!

  3. albert.ross Says:

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

    OXYGEN DIHYDRIDE

    HYDROGEN HYDROXIDE

    hydrogen oxide

    WATER

  6. Alex Says:

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

    dhmo is water. end of.

  8. Bjørn Says:

    Yawn!

  9. alongernamethanneeded Says:

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

  10. Annie Says:

    Mostly Harmless.

    […] śmierć milionów ludzi na całym świecie. Jak wynika z jej karty charakterystyki, dostępnej po angielsku tutaj, LD50 dla myszy wynosi 190 g/kg przy podaniu dootrzewnym i 25 mg/kg przy dożylnym. Rzesze ludzi […]

  12. SuperCrafter2 Says:

    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.

    Telling someone the hoax takes out all the fun :(

  14. CodeTech Says:

    It’s NOT a hoax.
    This compound EXISTS. It kills many people EVERY YEAR. In one event in 2004 a large quantity of uncontrolled dihydrogen monoxide in Thailand killed about 230,000 people.
    Although it has many practical purposes, IT IS DANGEROUS. Ignore this compound at your peril.
