Hydric acid, also called Hydronium Hydroxide, is a colorless and odorless chemical compound found in water supplies around the world, most often in large reservoirs and water treatment facilities. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of Hydric acid are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerin and Ethyl Alcohol. Tests have shown that Styrofoam and plastic cups contain the highest concentrations of Hydric Acid, with plastic bottles taking a close second. Inhalation of the compound is known to cause death, or in some cases severe brain damage. Yet, no ones doing anything about it. Furthermore, Hydric Acid has been shown to have severe impact in the environment. Post hurricane Katrina, Hydric Acid was found to have caused great loss of life in New Orleans, with many deaths attributed to exposure of the compound alone.

Considering all this, do you think we should do something to better control the environmental impact caused by Hydric Acid?
Actually, I wanted to see if I could make someone giggle. An environmentalist friend of mine sent me it in a mail.
