Pill capsule mystery turns sewer into rainbow river4/25/2012
The mysterious dumping of millions of colorful pill capsules has temporarily left one town in China with some of the most beautiful sewers in the world. Residents in Zhengzhou awoke one morning to find the overflow of empty pill capsules had turned over 900 feet of sewage ditch into a disturbingly brilliant rainbow -- but no one knows how it happened. While there is no official pharmaceutical factory in the area, authorities did shut down a "pharmaceutical workshop" several months ago and have now said they'll investigate to see if any substances are being illegally manufactured again. In the meantime, many of the capsules have washed away, dying the sewer a subtle, not-disgusting-at-all bluish green.
Does this look disgusting or beautiful?
