There’s always a way to describe a perfectly safe condition that makes it sound threatening. One of my favorite jokes in that regard is to point out that something contains high amounts of dihydrogen monoxide. It’s the main component of acid rain, for example. I always laughed about the videos on the internet, where so many people don’t seem to know what it is. But I dare you to try it in real life among people you know! The results may be surprising, to say the least.
