    There many chemicals that affect our everyday lives, take Dihydrogen Monoxide for example, without it most people would die in as little three days.

    3 days? Our bodies are about 60% water. I can't live with 40% of me left

    But it causes rust, is a major component of acid rain, and exposure to too much of it can be fatal. We need serious restrictions on it - it's for the children.

    I’d swear that reminds me of some of the grocery warehouses I have had the displeasure of delivering to, just stepping onto the dock could be fatal.

    I picked up a load of titanium dioxide once going to a manufacturer of vinyl siding. I asked the shipper just what the material was and if it was Haz Mat. His response was it is high dollar dirt used as a filler and coloring agent.

    I can't believe they missed driving off the loading dock with the operator looking skyward wondering what the heck just happened.

    Funny things happen when people forget about leverage.

    I like the ones where they use a forklift to lift forklift or a crane to hoist other cranes.

    I was wondering what the best way to clean lemonade off a laptop. Just as a side note when lemonade comes out your nose it hurts.
