Out of the Blue

Hey Blizzard, I think I've figured out how to get you out of the oddest story choice in Diablo III, the first act death of one of the most beloved characters in the series. Think about it... he was killed by butterflies, which are popularly reproduced via origami. That's right... Deckard Cain was a replicant!

Guys, I have really bad gas. Should I go to the doctor?  
Just because you aren't afraid of something doesn't it mean it can't kill you...

Spicy is good, extra crispy even... on occasion just to mix things up a bit. Keep things fresh, you know. What cartoon character was that? Bah, I can't remember at the moment. Anyone? Anyone?

every slave to the status quo is naturally infuriated by those who arent.. it reminds them of how cowardly they are, how they lack the balls and brains to do their own thing

scientific research has proven this! look it up, plenty of studies and so forth.. they said its true, it must be - i take their word for it because id rather not be bothered having to think for myself and risk being *gasp!* wrong about something

lols

Your comments sting like a bitch bro. Just reading them makes me squirm in pain. LOL.

Hear that sound? Ah, its the lovely sound of chirping crickets!

None of that made much sense. When you resort to baby talk, you've lost. No one ever said your teeth were guaranteed to fall out. More straw men.

Umm, that wasn't baby talk. That was my impression of me speaking with no teeth.

I'm sure you have a rock that keeps lions away, too. It must work, as you have no lions near you, right?

Your previous responses were much more compelling. Err, actually let me re-state that. Of all your statements, this is the least compelling. I could have responded similarly to the statement that 'muncipalities that lack fluoridated water have a higher rate of tooth decay'. But I figured why bother at this point. Do yaw thing dawg. Freedom of choice is what's it about. If it makes you happy knock yourself out. When my teeth start falling out from a lack of fluoride, I'll say, "Dayum, Beameo was wight!!!". Then we can all pat you on the back. :)I've been brainwashed into thinking that calcium is good for the teeth. More so than fluoride. Woe-is-me. *sigh*.

Lies, damned lies, and statistics. Remember dat.

Vitamins always have overdose warnings. I guess they're poison.

Anyway, water is a poison under this definition:
a substance that is capable of causing the illness or death of a living organism when introduced or absorbed.

Water is capable of killing you. This makes it a poison. Everything can kill you if ingested in too heavy an amount.



Whatever, you keep avoiding fluoride, your dentist will appreciate the additional fees he collects from you. I mean, given that we actually have empirical proof that there's a higher tooth decay rate in municipalities without fluoridated water than with fluoridated water.

10 years of no fluoride use here. 10 years of no new cavities. I think you hit the hammer on the head brudda. You keep on doing your thing. I'll keep on my doing mine. I'll try and update everybody when all my teeth start to fall out for a lack of exposure to fluoride.

But he said h2o is poisonous. How does over-hydration qualify as a poisonous substance? That's the part I am having a problem understanding.

poisonous - a substance with an inherent property that tends to destroy life or impair health.

I don't think there are inherent properties in water that destroy life, therefore, classifying it as poison seems somewhat silly. But whatever floats your boat. It would be akin to saying since floods kill people it follows that water is poisonous. Are we starting to see the crazy of the comment that water is poisonous? If not I can give more examples.

I think you are misunderstanding a major thing here. H2O is not tap water. H2O is distilled water.

Electrolyte imbalance is a real thing. Which is why nobody (sane) drinks distilled water. It doesn't kill you outright, but it most certainly can kill you if you eat wrong. Which isn't the case with normal water. (In moderation)

Your argument is a strawmen.... toxicity is not defined by substance, but by dosage.

Seeing as your own quote says "impair health" I think you answered your own question.


Umm, there was a reason I posted the whole sentence and not just two words of the sentence. If you guys wanna play word games knock yourself out. I never in my life heard of water(h2o) being classified as a poison. I never seen on my bottle of nestle water a number for a poison control center. But I'll look again just in case you guys know something I don't. I think we are using the word 'poisonous' just a lil bit too liberally here.

Keep moving those goal posts, it's cool...


He's been doing it at the start. In one post he created the strawman of fluoride increasing IQs. The study says it has no effect on IQ, not that it increases IQ, but hey, why look at facts when you can keep changing the argument you make?

Same with eggs. A guy at an eating contest in the US a year or two chugged down two dozen raw eggs and promptly had a stroke. That's happened to other people and killed a few as well.

The moral of the story? As the old expression goes, all things in moderation.
