It's viral because people believe "everything on the internet is true"

I have some hand made brooms, the old fashioned corn husk type, that always stand by themselves.

My eggs stand on end too.

Every generation has to learn about this. Been going on for thousands of years.

Internet needs to move on to more important things... every year, more people are killed by the insidious chemical, dihydrogenmonoxide, than by brooms.

Dilute it with at least 20% this and it won't hurt you - C2H6O. Or at least you won't feel it very much.

Dihydrogenmonoxide does not scare me near as much as it's closely related cousin, Hydrogen Hydroxide. That stuff is so basic. At the other end of the spectrum- Hydroxic Acid will neutralize Hydrogen Hydroxide.

The problem with hydroxic acid in its solid state is that it is very slippery. Stalactites of the stuff have been know to knock people out, or at least break their glasses. A lot of dogs like to chew on it though. Dogs are fun that way.

If only there were some substance that could be used to dilute it and make it safer...
