Random Thought
“What was the best thing BEFORE sliced bread?”

Another Thought...

PostHeaderIcon How gullible are we!

A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won

first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science

Fair on January 26. He was attempting to show

how conditioned we have become to the

alarmists practicing junk science and spreading

fear of everything in our environment.

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:

1. cause excessive sweating and vomiting

2. it is a major component in acid rain

3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state

4. accidental inhalation can kill you

5. it contributes to erosion

6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer


He asked 150 people if they supported a ban of

the chemical.

One hundred forty-three said yes, six were undecided, and only

one knew that the chemical was , , , ,

Water! The title of his prize winning project was,

“How Gullible Are We?”

We the conclusion is obvious.
