My favorite is http://www.dhmo.org/. Nothing on that site is incorrect. That is, What they state is true about dmho, but is most misleading in tone forexample, the FAQ’s

  • Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.

Interesting, Years ago I had taken the teacher exam. One of the readings and responses included the California Velcro Crop story. That was before I knew about the site. I feared my response, which was entirely accurate. I wrote how bogus I thought the article was, and wondered if that was going to lower my score. I wondered if I had shot myself in the foot. I was feeling out of line by responding on a standardized test that way. Clearly that was the answer they wanted.  Really interesting  to have a reading/question on a teacher exam like that one.
