Dihydrogen Monoxide: The Killer?
One day, while I was in middle school, I decided to use my nerdy knowledge to my own prank on the school. So devious, in fact, it would make others DIE OF THIRST.
Well, maybe not that bad. I used the fact that dihydrogen monoxide was really another name for water and made posters saying that the water fountains were contaminated with it! I put many true facts on the posters, including that it was the main component in acid rain. After posting them, I just sat and waited for the reactions.
I got lots of great ones! There were four kinds of people: the ones who completely freaked out, the guys who went along with the prank, the "I'm so cool that I'm going to vandalize/steal this" guys, and the smart-alecs who yelled out in distress that it was just water. The science teacher even noticed and gave me a silent thumbs up! I never really realized how many people didn't know this other name for water. To take it a step further, I made a petition for dihydrogen monoxide! I got a couple of signatures. Luckily, they didn't see me doing a facepalm in the corner.
It was funny!
