    Why you should ALWAYS ask more questions, especaially from the Internet.

    *especially. Sorry.

    KILL IT WITH FIRE

    dihydrogen= H2
    Monoxide = o
    dihydrogen monoxide = H2O

    JESUS TURDS, LETS EVAPORATE THAT SHIT!

    I think this may be the best cause ever.

    And it made me think about Arrested Development, which is awesome. The episode where they had a charity diner for a fake disease. Fucking awesome.

    Beat me to it Bobo, Lawl. BAN WATER

    Holy fuck tiki. This is so freakin old. Ok it may not be a repost, but shit, this whole joke thing about H20 happened a few years ago.

    Professor Ratbaggy

    Anyway, it should be hydrogen hydroxide.  Makes much more sense.

    deuce

    One of my college science teachers pulled this on the entire class one time… gave us a group in-class project on it. One of the guys in my group figured it out, but almost everyone else in the class fell for it.

    Granted, this was in 1998, before the internets expanded their series of tubes into everyone’s living rooms.

    @ Professor Ratbabby

    No it shouldn’t, even if it was a hydroxide bonding with a singular hydrogen which would then leave a single hydrogen molecule which CANNOT exist without another to stabilize it, it would thusly become H20, Dihydrogen monoxide, not hydrogen hydroxide.

    No, the Professor had it right. Think of Lithium Hydroxide, which is perfectly valid nomenclature.

    @ Professor & Tardex
    Stick it under stupidly high pressure, so that the hydrogen become metallic, giving rise to hydrogen hydroxide.

    Mah Beer NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    Tardex

    and numb7rs

    Hydrogen is not a metal, though it is on side of metal side of the periodic table, it is still diatomic and cannot exist by itself. Now if what numb7rs says was actually physically possible than the problem would be solved.

    Hydrogen is a metal under correct conditions
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallic_hydrogen
    Pure H2 is not the only source of hydrogen in a reaction. Consider, in the Bronsted-Lowery theory, the equilibrium water reaction is:
    H30^- + OH^- 2 H20
    So you clearly have a hydroxide ion (OH) that gains a hydrogen from the hydronium ion (H3O) to form hydrogen hydroxide aka water.

    oops, hydronium should have a positive charge in that reaction.

    you fuckers better not fuck up the beer

    CaptainBobo

    Well, in most normal condition, water is at equilibirum in the Bronsted-Lowery theory, in which the conversion of water into the base (-OH-) and the acid (H3O+) from water stays at a constant rate, in which you could probably never isolate either -OH- or H3O+. Remember, this is all theory (a theory that works really well), but you cannot isolate -OH-, only if you were to use a positive metal to attract -OH-, then you’re just cheating.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    @CaptianBobo
    You’ve got the chemistry basically right, but I don’t see how that’s cheating! If I need to add hydroxide to a reaction I’m probably going to use something like Sodium Hydroxide. That’s not cheating, that’s just like using a bucket to carry water.

    While we are banning DHMO we should also end Women’s Suffrage!!! END WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE TODAY!!!!!
