Johnny was a chemist.
Johnny is no more.
What he thought was H2O
In case you’re chemically challenged like I was, H2O is, of course, water, and H2SO4 is sulphuric acid. Emphasis on the word “acid.” If you drink sulphuric acid, you will die an excruciatingly painful death. Poor Johnny.
In Johnny’s defense, sulphuric acid is colorless and odorless, so it could easily be mistaken for water. On the other hand, when in a lab, it’s probably a good policy not to drink anything unless it comes from the tap or from a bottle specifically labeled as containing drinking water.
Rest in peace, Johnny.
