The Sixth Sense: the Sense of Humor

"The Sixth Sense - The Sense of Humor"
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater 
Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how 
conditioned we have become to 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:
1.      it can 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 patients

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

The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"
