Unsure which category this should be[edit]

Well, the heading basically says the question. I'd lean toward 'parody', but I'm not 100% sure. Any advice would be great! :D Onychoprion (talk) 06:58, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Wait, I'm sorry -- I re-titled this based on the understanding that you actually believed this. Am I mistaken on that? Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 07:00, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
LOL no! XD It's partly a jab at how everything is chemicals (the three listed in the essay are, in order, water, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide, which are the actual ingredients of contrails), and partly a jab at scientific illiteracy, like the DHMO hoax. Relatedly, it'd be nice if you didn't go re-naming my essay based on what you think it says. ;) Onychoprion (talk) 07:19, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Would you mind changing it back to my original title? I can't seem to find how to do that. Onychoprion (talk) 07:21, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
I did the honours. ;) (talk) 10:48, 6 November 42015 AQD (UTC)
Though apparently it was already fixed. Whoops. (talk) 10:52, 6 November 42015 AQD (UTC)

pH Value[edit]

Is it worth noting that Hydric Acid has an alarmingly high - for an acid - pH value of 7? Doxys Midnight Runner (talk) 10:12, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

That is true.... Hydric Acid has one of the highest pH values of any acid. But I'd rather not scare people too much about the dangers of airplane exhaust. Onychoprion (talk) 21:27, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
The sad part is how much is in people's bodies and they don't even think about it. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 21:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Indeed. :\ Especially the dangers of carbonic anhydride, which drastically increase if you don't live alone, or have pets. And most people don't realize how much hydric acid there is in everyday tapwater. Sadly, contamination levels are unregulated in the US. Onychoprion (talk) 00:40, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
