Egh, sweeping metanarratives on the "overall" toxicity of this compound -- it's the prototypical flaw of the modernist. Where are the stories that relate the lives of individuals in relation to dihydrogen monoxide? When are we going to stop these sweeping statements about such and such a thing's effect on this artificial overgeneralized construct of "people"?

I totally agree with this! Dihydrogen monoxide is so environmentally unsound. While there are already regulations preventing buildings from being built within a certain distance of dihydrogen monoxide-saturated environments, the government should totally be doing more to regulate this compound. Why, on our property, we found underground deposits of dihydrogen monoxide just 400 feet down! This morning on my way to school, I found a puddle of dihydrogen monoxide on my way to school. It probably leaked into the sewers. Poor mutant crocodiles and goldfish. Anyways, I think that dihydrogen monoxide should be banned from use in foods or places where food is sold and that all persons should be tested for levels of dihydrogen monoxide in their bodies so that they can be treated.

Perhaps it's dangerous, but should it really be the government's role to mandate testing?

Oh, I suppose you think God should decide. Environmental consideration of dihydrogen monoxide should not be left in the hands of Fundamentalist radicals. :(

As sirroxton's case of the You-Know-Who disease enters Phase IV : )

Shit, I thought I'd at least be up to Phase XII by now. At this rate, I won't be able to burn the holy symbols off of religious objects with my eyes for another 30 years.

I didn't say that at all. It's just that while buying a piece of property or food or whatever, if I care whether or not it has dihydrogen monoxide, shouldn't I either test it myself or ask for a certification from a company I trust that it has acceptable levels of the compound? Why should the government need to get involved?

Because the government has a vested interest in the long-term health of its citizenry, while a certification company has a conflict of interest with the food suppliers?

But what if the certification company has a vested interest in keeping customers, while the government has a conflict of interest with the lobbying groups food suppliers hire?

It's really just that it ought to be covered by an organization that I trust. If I trust a company and don't trust the government, it makes sense to have it be privatized. If I trust the government and don't trust companies, then it doesn't.

But it doesn't matter, because while you guys are squabbling about politics and flaky religious stuff, society is being DESTROYED by dihydrogen monoxide. That's why the Ecological Terrain Operations Resource In Saving Terra is such an important organization. A corporation in Worcester has been storing the stuff, disguised as a softdrink maker. Tonight, we're going to blow up the ground supports on those massive silos that are rumored to be storing the nefarious compound. We'll use the new moon and that big inflatable polar bear for cover. WHO'S WITH ME?!

Ah, we are using "new" in the obscure and archaic "full" sense.

You're the only one who brought up flaky religious stuff.

Now I could bring the discussion to religion if you'd like, but I don't really see a need for it here.

Screw that! I think we should try to spoil the joke post by turning it into a serious discussion instead.

That would be impressive, though, I warn you, I would have to counter by invoking taranhero.
