I think subby was going for the Simpson's quote "if it's brown, drink it down, if it's black, send it back" (referring to the town water supply).

Who is the Simpson?  To what Simpson does this quote belong?

untaken_name:  What if it turns my tongue pink?

I asked your mom the same question.  She said to dip a bit lower and maybe it would end up brown.

"The pinkish colour is not dangerous for the health."

Colors (or colouououours if you insist on being French) are never toxic. The compounds that cause the colors can be toxic. Pink doesn't destroy yellow. KMnO4 removes the Mn. They just added too much KMnO4, which turned the water pink. It takes very little KMnO4 to turn water pink.

Also, there is a level of KMnO4 that is toxic to humans. I don't give a shiat about gov't just telling me "it's safe" when they could throw down the numbers and prove it.

COLOUR if you insist on proper ENGLISH ! ... an urge to be pedantic


I prefer the efficiency of dropping unpronounced letters. I have a particular problem with the French language. I can't tell whether they're adding 5 extra letters to every word just to be fancy, or whether they just hate their own language so much that they refuse to pronounce more than half of any given word.

As a prank in high school, my chemistry lab group stole a reagent bottle of KMnO4 and dumped it in the pool on a Friday night before a Saturday swim meet. Pool turned pink as a Pride triangle.

They called in my chem teacher on his day off to declare the pool safe to swim in. He totally knew it was us, but didn't rat us out. Which was nice of him, since I think we might have caused a problem with the filter system.

WeenerGord: What if it's yellow?


Then it's got manganese in it. Read TFA!

Potassium permanganate is used to remove yellow colour left by manganese that is naturally found in the town's water supply.
