Considering this is MiceChat I highly doubt I am spoiling the magic. Jungle's water is not naturally green. Some true rivers are, I found that out while researching the boat names. It depends on the content of the river, silt, local plants, if it is rocky (makes it clear) or muddy. In any event it's dyed green, usually overnight. However there have been some cases where they've dyed it while it's running.
Back side of..... um nevermind
- On a couple occasions they decided to pour it in backstage and let the pumps drop it over S.Falls. The thought was that it would dissipate in the water and you wouldn't know, it would look a little greener is all. The reality is that it would clump up on top of the falls, really build up, then it was as if DuckZilla ate a bean burrito or something up there! It was always random, and usually timed to when you did the "Backside of Water" and then as you pointed that falling wonder was in their snapshot! Beautiful Blue
- On occasions they have grabbed the wrong bag of dye. It's rare, but it does happen. My best memory was of Benny. As I approached the falls from the front I see this massive bright blue water falling. Bright blue... couldn't miss it. Underneath I hear Benny " Ladies and Gentleman the worlds largest flowing glass of Kool-Aid... um no drinking please." A couple trips later I snagged a boat and I was under when Benny was approaching. I thought I had him. Suddenly I hear "Ladies and Gentleman 2000 flushes, does wonders for your plumbing and makes ours blue!". So for any junior Skips... that's why it was tough to get me to drop the mic, because I was used to Skips ad-libbing. Mystery Color
- For some reason it was decided that the over the falls method wasn't quite the effect they wanted. SO they talk me and 2 guys into taking an empty boat. I drive, they shovel out the dye behind me. This would have been perfect, except the bags didn't have labels. The first large spot on the river was the Elephant Pool... shovel shovel... splash splash... what the... It was RED, and it looked horrible. One of them commented that it would dilute and a boat was gaining on me so we floored it. They tossed a little here and there. At the Hippos I think one of them was sensing that they were running out of time so he just dumped a whole bag in. I pulled around the corner but was trapped by a slow Skip so there I sat. Behind me I could hear the boat approaching the Hippos
"You know kids, hippos are extremely gentle creatures, hardly ever attack, very peaceful OH MY GOD THEY BLEW UP A HIPPO... DUCK RUN RUUUUUUN! BANG BANG"
I laughed all the way back to the dock. They were right it did dissipate, in about 2 hours.
I also developed this logo, I put it on the Adventurer Thread but I know most of the Skips lurk here more then anywhere. You'll notice the man in the photo is the good Dr. S!
