China’s Rivers More Beautiful Than Ever

The majestic wonders of China’s aqautic environment are yet again in the news – this time with the news that the great Yangtze River has turned rust red for “unknown” reasons.

The Yangtze River may not be famed for its clear waters, but this is the first time it has turned such a fetching shade of red:

Experts speculate pollution is the likeliest cause, with natural algal blooms considered unlikely. Chinese officials say they are “investigating.”

It is not clear whether the piranhas will be able to survive this new environment, although judging from the optimistic activity of fishermen it may be the case that the river’s waters may yet run red with a healthy new population of fish.

    Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

    It's probably only abnormal in color due to the excessive water pollution (God knows how many chain reactions occur within their water supplies). Hail China.

    @08:00 Company owners wouldn't commit suicide over something like that in America. They'd just plant the blame on someone in a lower level of management, who might spend some time in prison, or more likely just get let go from the company. :P

    Yeah, if we found some company doing this in America, they would have themselves shut down AND probably charged with attempted homicide rightfully.

    In America, or in any other place of the world, the company owners will commit Seppuku three times in a row out of plain shame. Not in China.

    It may be a site that has the presence of porn, but only the childish religious zealots cannot recognize those who think freely when they see them.

    Only a religious fool can look at someone and say "How can you judge my beliefs?" and be completely ignorant of what anyone means when the response they get is "You don't understand... I have been down your path long before you, and found the dead end, and turned around to find a path that leads somewhere. Nothing you say is either new, or wise. Patronizing the zealous does nothing for anyone."

    @Taylor

    Kind of pot calling the kettle black. But it works both ways. You can interpret that only the dark-minded would go to a site that tends to peddle in pornography, or you can see the other side from those who have crossed the veil and recognize that to fear sex and the perceptions about it is to fear yourself. A world and beliefs built on fear are not true beliefs.

    But as with anything, there is a balance that must be met. Just because someone is open to pornography does not make them wise, but there is something to be said for exploring the things that we fear. A human is both 'light' and 'dark' and to deny the dark side is to never be complete.

    Right? Who would have thought the neckbeards on this site would bash religion. I mean, I know they're upset about all the failures in their lives, but no need to take it out on religion.

    That's not evolution.

    And your apparent belief that it does show your ignorance and lack of critical thinking.

    I know what you're saying is an attempt to sound as reasonable as possible. But be careful with trust in your human understanding, humans are imperfect no matter how logical and reasonable they seem to themselves to be. Bottom line is what you're saying is still just opinion, just like the opposite opinion is opinion. Everyone has one and everyone thinks theirs is correct. Which actually makes them and "childish foolish religious zealots" really no different from each other. Anon1350 pretty much made my point.

    Comment by Taylor

    This is a more or less a porn site anon 654. You can only expect so much from the types that would hang out here.

    Comment by Taylor

    Heey. Most of the people who hang out on porn sites are anti god and anti religion. Who would've thunk it.

    THIS IS FAKE to some extent! The clear orange ones are photoshopped! On the third pic, look between the two guys' heads. That's the real color. Also look how they colored the guys arm just under the bottle too.

    They won't survive. Unless someone who likes them that much brings them out of their predicament.

    Might help if they think this stuff is blood, they could gather there.

    lol, calling industrial and sewage wastes that turn your rivers red as "beautiful", that's China for you.

    Of course the Chinese officials are "investigating", trying to figure out what other waste to dump into the water to change it to whatever colors they want.

    Not really. It's sort of like applying more layers of thick make-up on an hideous girl. It may look prettier but I bet it's more polluted than before.

    You realize that the word "beautiful" was only added by Artefact sarcastically to mock this incident?

    Now if China had actually said that instead of it just being Artefact making a clever title.
