A thought about Chemtrailsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Just a thought. Any of you who see chemtrails, try filling a pie pan or other clean, wide area container with an inch or so of water. Leave it outside for a few hours, then take it to your local county extension service (or what ever agency can test well water to see if it is drinkable.) Shouldn't cost much, and it might not tell you anything, but it might be interesting if they tell you you shouldn't be drinking that water. I haven't seen any here or I would try myself.

Be careful about suggesting rational ways to test whether there are chemicals dropping from the skies in this forum. The SYSOPS will ZAP you!

probably should use distilled water,, don't want to just find out your drinking water is filled with nasties.

sounded like a good idea to me why real?

In addition to distilled, I would sterilize all containers that the water will come into contact with. I would also boil the water prior to leaving it out. Then, submit for testing. Sounds like a very good idea.

You should probably have a "control" group as well, to prove that your water has changed.

Titania, what a good idea. Rob, Celestine and Paul, good additions. Next time I see the con/chemtrails I will sterilize the containers, use distilled water, and use several (maybe in several different locations) containers. Sounds simple to me. Any scientific minds out there (since I am not scientifically inclined) see any holes in this simple test or anyway to improve accuracy?

Hi. I've been a scientist, particularly knowledgeable in water quality, having worked as a hydrologic technician for the US Geological Survey and Siskiyou National Forest for almost twenty years. Also worked for Coleman's Well Drilling drilling wells, installing and trouble shooting pumps, and testing water samples for many different types of contaminants. Also a designer and inventor of alternative energy systems.
You are not going to like this, but the best way to take samples, if you really believe we're being sprayed by the gov't is to get a deeper container, such as a five gallong bucket. Sterilize it by pouring boiling water into it, swishing it around several times, then pouring it out. Do this at least three times.
Next fill it with either distilled or sterilized water (depending on what type of contaminant you are testing for. Fill it to about two or three inches from the rim.
Now, the difficult part. Kneel down next to the container. Insert your head into it. Breath deeply thirteen times.
Guaranteed to stop all the useless grey noise on this forum.

Sounds like a good idea, Titania. Unfortunately, some (former) government scientists seem to categorize scientific methodology as "grey noise". Go figure.
