Do you sign petitions?

Temperature Gauges we all can use.

There are clear indicators to show us when the Air Conditioning is
working efficiently

Just as when we are out at the seaside there are indicators.

dihydrogen monoxide

We are urging 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 tumours of terminal cancer patients

We asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.

* Forty-three (43) said yes,

* six (6) were undecided,

* and only one (1) refused.

(He knew that the chemical was water.)

This post has been put together from the following source.

A student 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 gave the information shown above and posed
the question; ‘just how gullible have we become?’

The nursing home.

An Arab family was considering putting their grandfather in a
nursing home. Since most of the facilities were completely full, they
had to put him in a Jewish home. After a few weeks in the Jewish
facility, they came to visit grandpa.

"How do you like it here?" asks the grandson.

"It's wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful,"
says grandpa.

"We're so happy for you. We were worried that this was the wrong
place for you. You know, since you are a little different from everyone."

"Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the
residents here," grandpa says with a big smile. "There's a musician
here -- he's 85 years old. He hasn't played the violin in 20 years
and everyone still calls him 'Maestro'!"

"There is a judge in here -- he's 95 years old. He hasn't been on
the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him 'Your Honor'!"

And there's a physician here -- 90 years ! old. He hasn't been
practicing medicine for 25 years and everyone still calls him

"And what about you Grandpa" - asks the grandson.

"And me...., I haven't had sex for 35 years and they still call me

“The f*****g Arab!'"

No petitions for me, I do Temperature Gauges for some reason.

Marti said...

Oh lordie, that petition is both hilarious and frightening!

Loved the jokes and cartoons - delightfully entertaining as always!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hope this isn't a duplicate! It told me my first comment "timed out." Anyway...! I said I was clueless about the "chemical" being water. Good reason to not believe the scientists every time they say the sky is falling. I do believe global warming is real, though.

Jamie Dawn said...

I believe global warming and cooling have existed over the long history of our great earth.
I am not convinced that we are causing global warming and in danger of burning to death or drowning because of it.
We are very gullible and must watch what we accept as truth. Years ago, many scientist were sure the earth was flat.

The male temperature gauge was called "shrinkage" in an episode of Seinfeld. Very funny!!

Pamela said...

over the top. over the top.

Do you think those nipples are digitally enhanced.
bwaaa ha ha ha haha

Karen said...

The swimming temp cartoon is a hoot! ROFL Thanks for the giggles on that one.

It's frightening what some people would sign up to, isn't it? Yikes! I may have been one of the signers ;-)

Peter said...

Pamela, how could you even suggest digital enhancement......... sadly if there was any it was performed with somebody else's digits.

Merle said...

Hi Peter ~~ Thanks for your comments.
I don't know yet when I will see the specialis and he will decide if the cataracts are ready to be removed. I
have a lot of trouble reading and have a magnifying glass ever handy.
Hope your eye is qute better by now.
Take care, Merle.

It was water??? I would have thought it was something sprayed on plants, just goes to show...I'm not at all up with water's scientific moniker!

Temperature gauges, eh? Trouble is, how many guys walk around with no daks on...they'd be arrested! And I ain't walking around braless...!

Dave said...

*LOL* Love the temp sensors!
And I had seen the H2O thing before... it's amazing how gullible some people are!

Anonymous said...

You damn right they ought to ban water. Nothing wrong with a little German beer. Oh, you didn't mean just for drinking.

Rachel said...

Very funny stuff Peter!! LOL

Lee said...

If it's something I believe in, I will sign a petition.

c'est moi said...

dihydrogen monoxide leave it to a twelve or thirteen year old to come up with that! funny stuff.

I was highly entertained by your post today...but will deny that I was here, and belly laughed, when asked.
