    I want to hear what he has to say about that deadly poison, Di-hydrogen Monoxide.

  • The same thought occurred to me while I read the article. Does he know? Is there any way we can educate this chemist about its dangers? And why didn’t the Buzzfeed article include it in its list?

    The world needs to know!
