Does anyone else find it strange that it rained blood in India for over a month but none of the main stream news organizations reported on it? Is it just me or is there something going on world wide?

I'm starting to think that the world is driving while texting.

Are you referring to the Red Rain in Kerala? Because that was reported by the mainstream news.

Oh I saw that too!
Didn't the East Indian scientists say that the red rain contained some
unknown form of life?
And the people in India thought it was the end of the world..very - very strange!

Drunk rednecks finally did it. They shot upwards so many times, they eventually shot God.

Who says there can't be rednecks in India?

What was that!? In the corner! No, the other corner, you fool. Stop! Don't look directly at it! Did it just move? Come closer? Rest your eyes on the side of the screen. Watch it with you peripherals. There, did you see it? That is your deepest fears. I can show you them. Turn out the light, reach into the darkness, and find my hand. If you find it, hold it tight, and I will whisk you away on a journey. Find it? Got it? Good. You ready? Yes? Good. We're off.

It is strange and even stranger that it didn't make full front page press world wide.

lol. No.

"The color was found to be due to the presence of a large amount of spores of a lichen-forming alga belonging to the genus Trentepohlia. Field verification showed that the region had plenty of such lichens. Samples of lichen taken from Changanacherry, when cultured in an algal medium, also showed the presence of the same species of algae. Both samples (from rainwater and from trees) produced the same kind of algae, indicating that the spores seen in the rainwater most probably came from local sources."

And further happenings..

"Reports indicated that on August 21, 2007 red colored rainfall occurred in a few places in the northern part of Kozhikode district. Places around Vadakara, a municipality in Kozhikode district, which is 50 kilometers (31 miles) northward of Kozhikode town witnessed this phenomenon. The Center for Water Resources Development and Management (CWRDM) an Indian government agency, was reported to be awaiting samples for examination.[34]

A possibly related incident occurred in February 2008 when small fish started raining down during heavy rain in a village in Kerala"

Scientists confirmed no such thing. The alleged "blood" was a coloring due to the presence of a huge amount of spores from a lichen-forming alga belonging to the genus Trentepohlia. And this did hit the news, well at least where I live.

I think your confusing the new red rain with the 2001 red rain where it was proposed an unidentified microbe cause it until TBGRI managed to culture some proving it was an alga

its happened again in 2007

it got a couple of small mentions on news sites but its hardly "news" now

The green algal order Trentepohliales (Chlorophyta) consists of a single family, the Trentepohliaceae, with six genera. These algae are not aquatic, but rather subaerial, growing on humid soil, rocks, buildings, tree bark (Fig. 1), leaves, stems, and fruit. Some species are endophytic or parasitic (Fig. 2), whereas others grow in close association with fungi, forming lichens (Chapman and Good 1983, Chapman and Waters 2002). The cells are uni- or multinucleate, with several parietal chloroplasts that can be discoid or band-shaped, sometimes appearing reticulate. Most trentepohlialean genera develop a filamentous structure that forms either uniseriated, branched, erect tufts (Fig. 3) or laterally coherent, prostrate discs (Fig. 4). Others are highly reduced and produce only a short vegetative filament a few cells in length. Reproduction occurs by asexual quadriflagellate zoospores or sexual biflagellate gametes. (Bourrelly 1966, Chapman 1984, Silva 1982, Sluiman 1989, O'Kelly and Floyd 1990).

Unlike these cells, the ones found in India do not have DNA. They are not the same.
