Interesting counterpoint to the global warming craze.

no actually einstein had a much higher iq than that and and you are just making this stuff up out of jealousy. i bet if i said i was 130 you would say einstein was 110. look, 173 is like typical advanced college placement material. shoot, a common man appeared on tv once tlaking to oprah and informed them of his iq of 163. imean i`m telling you the truth. you envious people obviously have one equal to a pothead

here is an article about the dihydrogen monoxide hoax:

IQ means nothing. The test is fundamentally flawed -- especially when you take it on the INTARW3B. (OMG NOOOOOO!!11!!!11!) People like assnine tests far too much. I find it hilarious that we place so much emphasis on a test that measures a trait that the psychological community can`t even agree upon.

By the way, an IQ of 173 is +11 standard deviations from the mean score of 100, which is just . . . fantastically idiotic. If you`re going to lie, at least make it believable.

Funny that b3nzyme brings up IQ...I happen to have recently done research on that very subject due to some other questionable claims.

Here is a site that explains the ranking of various IQ scores and lists the IQs of several "famous" geniouses:

An IQ of "173" would place our dear b3nzyme on par with such greats as Darwin, Kant, and Mozart and would surpass that of Einstein (who was purportedly around 160).

Take from that what you will.

Personally, I thought I was gonna get more slack from the Michael Criton comment as opposed to the chemical makeup of water.

Guess that just shows that NOBODY likes Michael Criton.

I didn`t think someone would so vehemently defend DHMO as being something other than water. The stupidity of our "enlightened" society really never ceases to amaze me.

Personally, I think that global warming is just a craze. I don`t think we fully understand the problem, or the planets natural mechanisms for dealing with it.

I know that humans affect climate. I`ve read about climate changes that occurred before and after the black death. I think that rather than adopting strangling legislation like the kyoto protocol, we should try and understand the mechanisms in place, and if possible, tend the earth like a garden and control the climate. That`s just my $0.02 though.

Thanks Petitecitron, at least someone other than me and c0r got the joke.

As for B3nzyme, dude, you gotta switch to decaf.

I know you good ol` boys down south have a problem with modern concepts such as chemistry, evolution, and grammar. I think I`ll just nod, smile and back away ever so slowly.

(Eeeg.)

Global warming "Craze." Riight.

First of all, to those of you who took that article seriously and got upset about it. For shame. It`s satire.

Secondly, for those of you BELIEVED in "global cooling" and defended it. Oh my God, please do not breed.

DHMO (dihydrogen monoxide) is a HOAX that scientists and smartish people like to throw around to ILLUSTRATE THAT LAYPEOPLE ARE GULLIBLE. The very fact that this author has chosen to use DHMO in his topic proves that point. The DHMO website -- also a hoax.

DHMO was "invented" as a term among academia. I believe a pamphlet was circulated on some college campus and it caused quite an uproar. After that, a 14-year old student won a national science fair by authoring and circulating a petition for the government to "ban dihydrogen monoxide." The title of that student`s science fair project was "How Gullible Are We?"

Calm down. Learn to recgonize satire when you see it. Save for Janus Games

you`d think with your high and almighty i.q., you wouldnt need to ask your chemistry teacher anything, or post multiple copies of every comment you make.
Obviously the person that wrote this article was assuming dihydrogen monoxide was the same thing as water, and that was part of his attempted satire. I never claimed to be a chemist, my point is water vapor is the best and most abundant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere and without it this whole planet would be a very frigid place

there goes janus games ( or whatever his flunking retarted sn is i dont give a shtit) talking about stuff he doesnt know about again.. use some commmon sense... water vapor he says covering the top of the earth`s atmosphere causes atmospheric cooling... true... but it would not cool the earth down enough to cause a freaking ice age or something to even catch a scientist`s retarded attention because it would all freaking rain before it even got that cool. if you don`t know why rain happens go back to the second grade and ask your teacher what condensation/precipitation is. omg the world is filled with idiots... and while i wait for your comeback i know your an internet nerd and all internet nerds have no life and are insecure so they comply with socially accepted norms such as saying "you cant spell retarded b3nzyme" like me feelings are hurt. that`s everyone`s comeback always (as if it was supposed to hurt my feelings.) if you want to know hurt come see me someday.

omfg janus games and you other freaking retard did you guys even click on the link he provuided to dihydrogen monoxide? no you didn;t you freaking retards!! that is not water.. there is a difference.. so my chemistry teacher told me. this reminds me of the weird but true scientific facts page that was posted here one or two days ago i kept reading the guest`s posts and one guy said "did you know that you must avoid dihydrogen monoxide at all costs?!" the next woman was trying to sdound smart but probably only had an iq of 70 as opposed to my 173 and said stupid sheet like "dihydrogen monoxide is water and you need to learn your chemistry" then other people kept saying "yea your a moron"... no i hate all you embeciles!! dihydrogen monoxide is hydric acid!! its an acid you mother flipping retards i hate you all youre trying to sound smart but do not know your head from a freaking hole in the ground do us all a favor and go jump off the roof of a 6+ story bui

and by the way the dogs he is stocking on can be useful for survival if you ever set foot outside of your mother flauking urban living.... yes im in the south and i know dogs can make good hunting dogs, protection (you know people in an ice age will be like cannibals) and lots of other reasons... oh and you havent heard of dogs that can pull a sleigh? ever seen that kids movie snow dogs? dooooyeee!!! if you were heere right now i would beat you so bad that i would put a dent in the time/space fabric and jump through it to go back in time (ok in know traveling back in time is impossible im just making my point of how much i hate him) and stop you from wiritng this ridiculous post and letting its reakingness fill iambored.com with freaking retarted gooberness of n00bity for rizzle!

Except that large amounts of water in the atmosphere form cloud cover, which is the most prevalent source of climate cooling known. Think the "Daisyworld" model.

yes, dyhydrogen monoxide is h2o, but water vapor is actually the most abundant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere

Matter of perspective my arse. You did understand that his reply was full of bs. It`s really a masterful piece of satire. Proof you ask?
1. He quotes Michael Criton, a man who is KNOWN for doing absolutely no research in his stories. He`s also known for being unable to write a decent ending, too.
2. He blames 95% of global warming on Dihydrogen Monoxide. Now, di means 2, and mono means one. Yes, he`s blaming global warming on H2O. That`s water folks.
3. Property rights on the desert?!?! That`s hilarious. You know, it`s a good thing governments don`t let people own the desert, or else there`d be no desert for anyone. It`s such desired, lush property. No, wait...IT`S A DESERT!!! Nobody wants it because there`s no WATER and nothing GROWS there!!!
4. Did you click the link of the thing he`s going to stock up on...they`re dogs. He`s going to stock up on dogs. Hilarious.
5. Large asteroid...more worried about the big boom that ends most life.

it`s kind of funny how some people think they know everything about everything. since i actually have a degree in meteorology, i can laugh at this retard. I have to admit, he is right about a volcano or asteroid causing global cooling much faster then global warming could ever happen. However, he is taking the effects of global warming much too lightly. It just goes to show that a good debater doesnt need to know much to be effective, they just have to warp the facts to support their arguement. Oh and fyi- theories suggest its highly possible that global warming can actually trigger an ice age by shutting down the ocean`s circulation. (and no thats not taken from that ridiculous movie "The Day After Tomorrow", its a real theory)

Truth is always a matter of perspective. This guys claims are no less valid than any others. I find it intriguing, and a wonderful counterpoint to the global warming hype.
