As is dihydrogen monoxide, but that’s still used in food products (so far)

It’s an older (2013) story I just stumbled across, but it neatly captures the insanity of our modern world: 15-year-old’s petition causes Gatorade to remove brominated vegetable oil (BVO) from its drink after public is horrified to learn that BVO is also used as a flame retardant.

Extraordinary delusions and the madness of crowds is not a new phenomenon, but thanks to the Internet and gullible idiot news readers, what was once merely a curiosity and minor nuisance is now how we let ourselves be governed.

Wait til that little girl discovers dihydrogen monoxide – she’ll wet her pants.
