Hmmm. Sounds like Lo Pan is making a move.

...Or a biblical plague. Nah. I'm going with Lo Pan.

It's China.  It's not THAT big of a mystery.  Someone dumped massive amounts of something red and potentially hazardous into the river.  Mystery solved.

Done in two. Only surprise is 1000 dead pigs weren't found floating in the blood red river.

Terra Chips does a bag of sweets and beets. I thought there was something seriously wrong with me the next day.

Just because it turned red doesn't mean the substance that was introduced into the river was red beforehand. It may have been red, it may have been turquoise.

Poor bastards. Their cancer rates are going to be simply astounding.

If only there were a way to go upstream and see where the red starts.

I almost feel bad for China. They had the opportunity to learn from the ecological damage the west inflicted on itself during it's own industrialization efforts. They had the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of history and do it right. However that would have cut into profits and taken more effort on the higher classes in China.

Somehow I doubt that there is anything mysterious about it.

/mumbles something about making the factories on said river move their intake pipes downstream from their outlet pipes...

It's not like some for profit assholes didn't do the same here in the past year to a couple of our rivers. We also have a party of assholes who would love to pollute our rivers, water table, and lakes for a nickle here in the US.

Fallout Boy,

This thread was done in two.  You can find someone/something more worthwhile to white knight.  Trust me, China is not going to sleep with you.

I'm guessing the water wasn't crystal clear and potable before it changed color.

And algae blooms can still be caused by water contamination...

a 4'+ print of Vigo the Carpathian in the gaudiest ugly frame is sitting on the top of my "extra money to blow" list.  If I had the room, I would go for a 7'+ size print that I saw.

Which requires an overabundance of nutrients or light.  Since the sun has not recently parked over China, and they are likely not running a grow op along miles of this river, I'll go with excess nutrients.
