If it weren't so poisonous, Styrofoam would be one of our best food options.

No it wouldn't. Hydrocarbons, although a good source of energy, is not a good source of nourishment. Besides, it IS poisonous and ALWAYS WILL BE.

Ah yes, very good point. It sure is good to see you have your thinking cap on.

But you see, you've stumbled upon the very reason that Styrofoam is poisonous: it contains harmful hydrocarbons!

Using your logic :

If it weren't so light, styrofoam would make great paperweights.

If it weren't so hard to see through , styrofoam would make great windows.

etc . . .

This is quite the amusing blog, by the way.

Yeah and if, "If's" and "But's" were candies and nuts, we'd all have a merry christmas.

Kids before you speak your wit learn some science.Hydrocarbons can be easily converted to carbon hydrates by ionising.Styrofoam in electrolyte solution at a charge rate of 3,4 mC WILL be converted to carbon hydrate as sugar will convert to styrofoam by
oxidizing in a HNO3-CA(CO2) solution. Its the same procedure as creating extasy (drug) by adding Vodka icecubes to vinegar.

Yes, hydrocarbon has molecular equivalence to carbohydrate - the only problem is that in styrofoam the carbon is in front. The reduction procedure j.roberts mentions will invert the molecule while retaining it's chiral handedness and demonstrate the point dan serena was trying to make. In fact, many kinds of "puffed" breakfast cereals are made in exactly this manner.
