What's added to big fountains that turns the water green?

Why is the fountain blue? Here in Silicon Valley, two parks have Geneva-style fountains in the center of their lakes -- one in Sunnyvale, another in Cupertino. Instead of white, like in Switzerland, the water's a kind of azure turquoise. Why? A caustic acid to burn anyone foolish enough to take a dip? Chemicals to eradicate algae? Please advise.

Magic color changing blueberry residue

You buy a bag of delicious frozen blueberries and empty its contents into a plastic tub which you keep in the freezer.

Blue and red roofs in Beijing?

Look at GoogleMaps over Beijing. About a quarter of the buildings have rooftops that are red or blue. And the color is really strong in comparison to everything else. Has the image been colored, or are they just painted? Either way... Why?

Ready to jump off a klif.sys....

I'm getting a Blue Screen of Death on startup (Windows XP Pro) which says that the "problem" (whatever it may be) is being caused by a file called klif.sys. Googling around indicates it's a Kaspersky file, and I do indeed have their anti-virus software installed on my system. But I haven't found any solutions, and I can't get past this BSOD. Is there any hope for me? (More details inside.) [more inside]

Where can I find blue shoe polish

I'm looking for blue shoe polish. Kiwi apparently makes it, but after checking local shoe stores, discount department stores, and drug stores, I can't find it. Any suggestions for where else I can look (either general store genres or specific places if you're familiar with the Detroit area), or, if that fails, a place to find it online without exorbitant shipping costs?
