So there's no harm in being exposed to this food product, right?

Vinegar is ~3-7% acetic acid. Increasing the concentration 15-30 fold makes a big difference.

1. And what if food products were thrown on Billo's car?
No biggie, right? It's just food. :-)

3. Indeed, Jesus asked for water and the centurions gave him vinegar to drink - a common food product.
He preached the Kingdom of Heaven and they placed on his head a crown of thorns - a common gardening product. All harmless items; as is a wooden crucifix, which is merely two sections of lumber joined together - an elementary carpentry product. I know FOX News would explain it this way, if someone were to ask.

4. I just debugged my collard greens with a healthy dose of vinegar
and a bit of salt. Bugs just drop off dead, curl up and float or try to run away from it then drown.

Can't imagine what it'd do to humans at higher doses...

5. Yes, and Pepper Spray is essentially a Condiment!
A very very spicy condiment.

11. If they sold it that way I'd probably buy it.
And it would make a good substitute for attacker-repellent.

I believe officers are required to be sprayed with pepper spray so that they are aware of what it is they are doing to others. Is it like that everywhere? The cop doing the spraying needs to be pepper sprayed for as long as he held the button down aiming it at other human beings.

Oh, it'd probably kill him, so we can't take a chance on that. Or give him an asthma attack if he's prone to asthma. Or send him into cardiac arrest or give him a miscarr-- oh, but I DO get carried away.

Let the cops all get kicked in the stomachs during their mandatory pepper-spray training.

I guess we could let the taxpayers' money pay for their hospitalization afterwards. They ARE, after all, our trusted public servants and protectors.

8. Pepper spray has capcaisin as the active ingredient.
Vinegar and capcaisin are used in food products, but in weak solutions.

13. Propaganda is news, it just doesn't contain as many facts.
Isn't that right? Fox is just like CBS back in 1963 except for a few lies.

Athletes foot too. Don't buy expensive creams that don't work. Just soak your feet either diluted or raw like I did, (STING) and within a few days your feet clear up and no longer itch.

15. Ricin is a food product, right?
I can't see why anyone would be arrested for trying to extract something from castor oil ...

17. Cyanide, too
I'd bet if I concentrated cherry stems about a million times, which is the level this is concentrated to vs. Tabasco sauce *my favorite*, it wouldn't just be food anymore.

16. Logarithms pfft.
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 06:41 AM by Aerows
That's just science, and we all know that is subject to debate.

It's not like anyone PROVED anything.

Oh wait...

(logarithmic progression of chemical concentration)

I'm such a nerd :(
