    Years ago, a kid for his science project set up a display talking about the evils of a chemical in our environment that eroded fields, destroyed homes, rusted out metals, and so on. He gave the scientific name for it, and people signed up to have it removed from the environment.
    Years later, Penn and Teller did the same thing at an eco-rally and got lots of signatures to have it banned.
    the chemical? WATER.

    Well, i don't want to start a political debate, this isn't about politics, but a matter of law:

    if someone were to slip into a piece of legislation (which happens a lot) a provision that Dihydrogen Monoxide levels in all rivers and lakes will have to be eliminated by 2020, and the bill was signed into law, could it really be enforced by say, the EPA?
    (at least until an amendment was passed to fix that gaffe?)

    to me, that would be the Ultimate April Fool's Day joke.
    i would get impeached or never re-elected, but i would be remembered.

    so what do ya think?

    I'm reasonably sure SOMEONE would realize what DHO was before it got too far.
