But be very cautious with your activities in the lake. Extremely high levels of Dihydrogen Monoxide are present in the lake. The amount of this chemical compound in Table Rock, and other lakes and streams in Missouri have been on the rise in recent weeks.

What is it?
Quote:
Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. 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 DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.
And what are it's effect?
Quote:
Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
Contributes to soil erosion.
Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.
Not only is Table Rock effected by Dihydrogen Monoxide. Brcause of the power generation at Table Rock dam, large quantities are introduced into Taneycomo as well.

For those of you who have never had even a high school chemistry class...

Dihydrogen Monoxide = H2O = Water

I've been busy, but took a few minutes to see if I could find my brushpiles yesterday evening.

Yup. First, a nice goggle-eye, then a nice bass.
GPS coordinates? Please?

More tail is always better!

Closing of thread because of lenth and variety of topics

We are closing this thread because of its length and the variety of topics that are being discussed not related to the topic of the low lake levels that were the topic of the original post. Too, the low lake levels that were the subject of the original post are no longer a factor.
