Dihydrogen monoxide

The majority of those asked will say "No Way Do I want that in my back yard"!!!

Yeah and what is H2O4...?

Mixing with your whisky... (yes and washing and that kind of boring stuff too)...

I've found that when you use one of these - they stop thinking about trees!

Will this do...?!



I've seen other evidence where a 5kg / 7lb pudicat managed o scare a full-grown adult brown-bear up a tree (search for it yourself on YouTube).

Caco

you would not want H2O4 in your whiskey

Hydrogen superoxide. It would be as reactive as hell.

A Higher Hydrogen Peroxide, H2O4?

"THE formation and decomposition of a higher hydrogen peroxide H2O4 has been described in recent Russian literature. Much of this work dealt with the existence of condensed HO2 radicals or molecular H2O4 at low temperatures ; for example, Kobozev et al., Reznitskii et al., and Gorbanev investigated the reaction between atomic hydrogen and liquid ozone at −196C. Calorimetric and electron spin resonance measurements are quoted as evidence for the existence of hydrogen superoxide H2O4 which decomposes spontaneously at −115C. into hydrogen peroxide and oxygen."

I wonder what the Russkies interest is......opens up all kinds of thoughts about explosives and rocket fuel oxidisers

I like the sound of that as a mixer Milo, got a kind of sub-orbital kick to it.

I was just trying the H20 for text speak solution (as you well know).

We had a serious Tree Hugger take up lodging in one of our Timber Purchases from the USFS. He reckoned he would save that old Tree by doing so.

The Logger's Timber Boss never slowed down....fired up the Chain Saw and went to making sawdust and noise.

The only thing that saved the Hugger was the Forest Service guy showing up to inspect the Logging Site....who said he would terminate the Contract if we felled the Tree without issuing the Hugger proper safety gear.

While we sent a Runner into Town to buy what we needed....the Hugger elected to find other Trees to protect.

It was a very long walk back to town for him....as he was three tires short of being able to fix the Flats he picked up from "Gravel Cuts" in the sidewalls of all of his tires.

SASless beat me to it, I was going to say chain the bugger to the tree and fire up a chainsaw.

Must learn to be quicker.

Nah - Just show a tree hugger this little gizmo going full out. It's like the forestry equivalent of a slaughterhouse. That'll scare 'em!

DMHO contamination

We have DHMO contamination in the cooling water at the power station I work at. The degree of contamination is close to 10^6 ppm. Should we notify the environmental authorities?

A stupid chemist had a drink,
But he will drink no more,
For what he thought was H20 was H2SO4!
