That's hilarious (and sad) because I know that I would get a panicked forward from my sister-in-law about this "terrible chemical" that might be harming us. High school chemistry, people!

Penn and Teller did this exact some stunt with a bunch of idiot picketers for an epidode of Bull Sh*t some years ago. Definitely worthy of a few palm slaps to the forehead. Amazing how many signatures they got.

Well you know, that stuff is dangerous...

Mix it with the extract of Hordeum vulgare subsp. vulgare, boil it with some Humulus lupulus and add in some Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, or Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis, and consume enough of it, and lord knows what could happen...

You could end up with your face plastered around the web like this guy;

that's hilarious! Reminds me of some of the Jaywalking segments on Leno.

"Who fought in the Civil War"?

"Ummm...that was the British, right?'

I've never really seen that as 'being dumb'. Obscuring the real meaning of what you are saying behind technical language or technical sounding jargon is common. Getting people to agree with someone that carries themselves like an expert and uses language that makes them sound like an expert is frequently done. I'd be willing to guess that everyone here has been bamboozled by someone at one point or another and never realized it.

These 'water petition' don't really 'prove' anything about the relative intelligence of the participants. It just proves that, particularly when it costs you nothing, people are willing to take what people say at face value.
