"A dog, "Leao", sits for a second consecutive day, next to the grave of her owner, Cristina Maria Cesario Santana, who died in the week's catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero, on Jan. 15. Brazilians braced for more rain Saturday, fearing further landslides after walls of muddy water tore through towns and claimed some 550 lives in the country's worst flood disaster on record."

Epic Prank?

Water samples taken by government officials now conclusively reveal that the culprit of the water's unusual colour was fluorescein, a tracing product used primarily to uncover rainwater leads in environmental simulations and diagnose numerous medical conditions. Thankfully the chemical is non-toxic.

[...]

The Daily Brew reports that, according to Langford Mayor Stew Young, only a small amount of the chemical is necessary to change the colour of a river. "It's a non-polluting chemical that's really bright green. It's probably some idiots with a bit of knowledge," he said.

Totally beats our idea of throwing milk powder in the Vollenhove lake.

Every year a similar substance is legitimately used to color the Chicago River green for Saint Patrick's day. The first time they used 100lbs of chemical and turned the river green for a week. Now they use 40 lbs of a different and more benign chemical and the river only stays green for half a day. Read the whole story here.

NASA's silly sci-fi film list - 2012 the most flawed

"At a conference held at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, NASA experts have voted 2012 the most scientifically flawed and absurd science fiction film ever made.
...
NASA’s Donald Yeomans, who headed the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission, called the film an "exceptional and extraordinary" example of bad science in Hollywood movies. He pointed out that neutrino particles cannot interact with physical substances, and there is no possible way neutrinos carried to Earth by solar flares as depicted could cook the planet’s core and cause hurricanes or earthquakes or produce tsunamis big enough to overwhelm Mount Everest as shown in the film."
