Come on Tyrell, Dihydrogen Monoxide... I suppose you think that's
funny, but I find
people do actually read this stuff and will believe your BS.
Please do me a favor (and the rest of the people who read this
website) and don't post anymore dribble such as this again.
Just for those of you who don't
remember your high school chemistry, Dihydrogen Monoxide is H20
Last year on the 1st of April
a Fairbanks Disc Jockey pulled this prank on the people of Fairbanks,
and let's just say the City of Fairbanks received hundreds of
calls regarding this "dangerous substance in their schools."
I just think if you're going
to try to pull a fast one Tyrell, at least come up with something
Just my two-cents.

From Beth Ipsen's Article in
the Fairbanks News-Miner on the 2nd of April 2004
"April Fools' Day joke
doesn't hold water
An April Fools' Day prank backfired
on popular local radio personality Glenner after he warned listeners
that dihydrogen monoxide had been found in Fairbanks schools
and homes Thursday.
Glenner, whose real name is
Glen Anderson, was pulled off the air after the Fairbanks mayor's
office was inundated with calls from citizens concerned that
the air they breathe was laced with dihydrogen monoxide.
It is, but they didn't recognize
it by that name.
Dihydrogen monoxide is water."
