RE: Strong Water: A Google Journey Through American Culture and Innovation

Wow I don't even remember when the started to call forest fires as wild fires. I think I just went with the flow, without even noticing the transition but changing of name does actually reflect the effect of these fires on the people.
Also the phrase 'strong water' does remind me of heavy water (hydrogen isotopes) but in fact it just might be the reflection of how strongly this treated water subdues the fire (as compared to the untreated water.)

Yes, I didn't even get into chemistry for this post. There was potential here for 2000 words at least. :)

Chemistry or the transition of the name and it's reflection of effect on people.
The chemistry can actually be longer article. Maybe I could take this up and write a bit about it.
