Overheard on the 9 bus:

"So I told him there's hydrogen dioxide in our water, and he was like 'Oh my god, there's hydrogen dioxide in our water!'"
"He didn't get it?"
"No, he didn't think like, OK, hydrogen is hydrogen, and di means two, so dioxide means..."
"He didn't think like H2O? What a retard."
"What a retard."

    What's worse about the whole thing is that hydrogen dioxide is actually H2O2, which can be harmful if ingested orally when it's not highly diluted with water, so the guy who didn't get the joke had reason to be worried.
