Bottled water has become a multi-billion dollar industry, largely because people don’t quite trust tap water and fountains to be free of additives.

Hah.

Significant concentrations of the hazardous chemical dihydrogen monoxide are routinely added to virtually all brands of bottled water. This is a chemical that has been responsible for THOUSANDS of deaths each year; young children and teenagers are especially at risk when exposed to a large amount, and in its gaseous form it can burn- in extreme cases even searing flesh off bone.

So why do bottling companies persist on contaminating their water with dihydrogen monoxide? It’s responsible for the smooth texture and colourless clarity of their product, and they don’t think bottled water would sell as well without it.

Go here to find out more about the dangers of dihydrgen monoxide.

On a lighter note, this is the best! quiz! ever!

Seriously!

Me:Neutron
Neutron -- You don't take sides, you just sort of
hang out and blend into the crowd. If someone
lets you loose though, you can cause some
serious damage. If you are around too many
other neutrons you get bored and start to
decay.


What kind of subatomic particle are you?

Prof: (doodle, doodle) You all remember random bits of calculus right? (draws squiggly, vaguely-math-like markings) You know, my grad students had trouble with this part… Isn’t that amusing?
Me: (smiling happily)
Other Student: You’re following this?
Me: Not a bit. But, look! He derived the speed of light. How awesome is that?
OS: …

And it doesn’t help that my Prof has the wild grey hair and the scary-excited eyes of any poster-material physicist. Yay for the first week of second year, at the end of which I have yet to do any proper homework.
