    Okay, I just got out of my chem exam, well a while ago, and I have to ask about this.

    At the end of the exam were some bonus questions, here's the first, approximately.

    The substance dihydrogen monoxide has been researched thoroughly and linked with thousands of deaths nationwide. It is currently studied in many advanced science classes, and as of yet many of it's properties are not fully understood. Briefly state whether there should be governmental controls placed on this dangerous compound and why.

    And the second one: (I am not kidding.)
    Match the following characters with their favorite element:

    Superman:
    Walt Disney: Californium?
    Donnie & Marie: ?
    A prisoner with a sense of humor: ?
    A policeman: Cu
    Adolf Hitler: Ge?
    A doctor: He (Heal)ium?
    The Undertaker from WWF: ?

    There were some others, but they were serious. I'll see if I can get some answers on the second one, the first ones easy if you read it carefully.

    Like that first one. The answer's simple. NOTHING! It's killing off stupid people!

    dihydrogen monoxide? sounds pretty bad to me.

    I didn't mean to give it away that quickly.

    Ophidion, you're right, edit your post so you don't give it away to the rest.

    And rather than add another response to this thread, I'l just edit this post.

    I meant to put Krypton in with superman, that's what I did on the test, just forgot here.

    Lol that Jelly fav. :)

    About 18 months ago I was shown a site, where a bloke was getting up a pressure group to get diHydrogen monOxide banned. HE had quite a few people sign up, he used bits like listing the number of people who drown each year, but listed them as dieing by inhalation of DiH monO. Also listed cost of damage caused by exposure to diH monO, ie flood damage.

    Rancor: No, these were bonus questions,

    So, here's the list as far as I can tell, thanx to some input and extra thought. (I have way too much time on my hands)

    Superman: Lead or Krypton, see, he's only sensitive to kryptonite, krypton is his home planet.
    Walt Disney: Californium
    Donnie and Marie: Osmium (kudos to Mordecai)
    A prisoner with a sense of humor: Silicon (silly con)
    A policeman: Copper
    Adolf Hitler: Germanium
    A doctor: Helium
    The undertaker: Why barium?
