This is a normal post pedant rant:
Dihydrogen monoxide is not a proper chemical name. Since oxide specifically refers to an oxygen atom with a 2- charge, the correct IUPAC term would be hydrogen oxide.

Water could never be considered an acid as it generates -OH and H+ ions in equal proportion upon dissociation, it is therefore an amphoteric.
