Well, that's good advice regardless of what water you're entering, really.

"The Hawaii Department of Health said thousands of fish have already suffocated and died from a molasses spill earlier this week. The 233,000-gallon spill was caused by a leaking pipe in Honolulu Harbor, officials said."

TIL: Hawaii has a molasses pipeline...

Hot and cold running molasses would be a big selling point on any house I am looking at.....

When, America?! When will you learn to regulate Big Molasses?! We need to move to greener sources of sweetener, for the good of the planet. They're in bed with too many politicians though, facism abound!

Put another way by Janice Okubo, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Health, "It's sugar in the water. If you know a scientific way to remove it from water, let us know."

That's racist! I'm completely out-!

Fish dying off after massive molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor

... Oh, wait, sorry.

Even if this wasn't my home state I would still be crushed.  I wonder what will come first?  Me telling my, as of now unborn, children about these amazing creatures we used to have, called tigers.  Or telling them how daddy used to swim under the water, breathing and swimming with the fish in a magical land called The Coral Reef.

I've lived on Oahu my whole life and I only learned that fact when I saw a story about it on the news yesterday.

Funny to read a story on Fark which has a quote from someone I know and see regularly.

Hell, Lohan would want to party with me.  We three should get together.

Still sucks.  I feel a single tear welling up, preparing to dramatically stream down my cheek.

In other news, there is a molasses pipeline in Honolulu Harbor. WTF?
 
2013-09-11 09:32:33 PM  
And then the big brown shark came.

FTA: "It came as a shock to all of us," said Robert Harris, director of Sierra Club of Hawaii. "I don't think any of us were aware molasses even existed in Hawaii."

Uh, a major product of Hawaii is sugar cane and they had no idea molasses would be produced?

/Call me for a maple syrup pipeline
//Hope the company is facing serious charges which are sadly not being mentioned
///fark those fish killers

Came for this and to say "massive molasses."

To remove sugar from water scientifically:

1) micro filters that let water through but not sugar molecules;
2) add bacteria to eat the sugar then something to eat the bacteria and so forth until there's nothing left but water and fish;
3) evaporation--Nature's own solution to all solutions;
4) freeze the water slowly and remove the ice;
5) crystalise the sugar with string and make your own candy (full of bacteria and dead fish).

Or use sharks with lasers on their heads to burn the sugar out of the water.

If it's yellow, let it mellow.
If it's brown... drink it down?

None of which will be practicable in open ocean, but yeah thanks for playing.

That explains why there were bits of corn and peanuts in my drinking water. I thought it was one of those fancy flavored water enhancers.

They use a lot of that crap for making brown sugar at the refineries.
