10 most dangerous materials

... Earth, Air, Water
  [vote for,

...Number 8: Earth (scene of broken ground in a dry field).
Earth, also known as dirt, or "ground", is the material that covers every dead person after buried. When becoming wet it turns into mud, which could be ruinous to your child's new holiday suit, and is definitely the horror of any mother who just finished washing the floor. This is especially true for families with pets.

(Scene of picnic at beach) Earth can be found in various shapes and forms, such as sand on the seashore. If you pack a picnic and bring it to the beach, sand can get into your sandwich (which is why it is called a sandwich). Sand gets into your shoes and onto your clothes and whatever you do to shake it off, it will still come home with you. At extremely high temperatures, sand can be turned into glass, which breaks when dropped and is the cause of numerous cut fingers and toes. Glasses are the cause for temporary blindness when people loose their glasses after having relied on them for some time. Glass can easily become a life-threatening hazard in middle eastern areas where stones are hurled at people driving their cars just a stone throw away from home, and we should be reminded that stones, as well as glass windows, are essentially hardened earth.

Number 9: Air. (Scene of airplane)
Air is the number one cause of fires in the world. The oxygen in the air connects to carbon and other elements and along with suffocation, poisoning (with carbon monoxide), and plain old pollution, the air feeds the flames, bringing in its wake pain and death, burning down our forests, killing livestock and ruining nature, and just causing devastation everywhere around the world.

Number 10: Water. (Scene of the sea)
Besides drowning people, breeding mosquitos and serving as the basis for "soft drinks" like Pepsi and Coka-Cola, water is also the foundation for youtube hoaxes like HHO motors and the inspiration for the largest man-made hydroelectric environmental disasters like the Aswan dam or the Ural sea dry up. Water is also the environment and natural habitat of the giant squids, the sharks, and the Loch Ness scare, constantly threatening civilization as it is known today.

       Your point being?

       Vacuum, that being the thing that encompasses the rest.

       // Vacuum, that being the thing that encompasses the rest. //   

       Vacuum isn't a "thing", it's the absence of anything - an empty region devoid of any physical object (electromagnetic radiation, electric and magnetic fields don't count). Like socialism, but with substantially more potential for development into something useful.

       // Vacuum isn't a "thing" […] potential for development into something //   

       Something from nothing?

       Something into nothing.   

       Of course, there's always "zero point energy" to be harvested ...

       Sounds like web page that takes forever to load, and is mostly ads when it does.   

       I suspect sites that start out with: 10 most, 10 worst, 20 best, (number and extreme descriptor). A new Google feature that can find these web sites and ignore them or shove them a few thousand down in the results would be great.

       Time is one of the worst. I'm ok today, but I might not be as good tomorrow.
