Thousands of netizens in China were taken by surprise with the latest viral images that have been making the rounds on the interwebs lately.

If the photos are to be believed, it goes to show that flood waters in Japan are so clean they apparently look clearer than a swimming pool.

According to sources, the pictures were taken on the subway of Hamamatsu, an eastern city in Japan. The flood was caused by Etau, a storm that struck the area. However, it wasn’t Etau that caught the attention of people but the crystal clear flood water seen in the photos below.

Photos of this flooded Japanese subway recently went viral online.

The pictures started to spread like wildfire among social media users in China and soon thereafter, began to circulate across the world as well.

Reactions, as you can imagine, have been pretty varied with some praising Japan’s cleanliness while others are claiming it’s nothing but more than some good Photoshop magic.

Many netizens observed that the flood waters were ‘cleaner than swimming pools.’

Over at Twitter, Cathe Silverio said:

“Wow! Flood water in Japan subway is clearer compared to swimming pools.”

Laraine Lawliet added:

“… one of the reasons why I love to visit or live in Japan… People are well disciplined.”

Some credited Japan’s well-disciplined people while others said it’s probably a matter of geography.

Still, this hasn’t shut down skeptics saying that the photos are probably just edited via Photoshop.

One Chinese netizen also had this theory:

“Islands have less mud, so of course [flood is] cleaner than somewhere with many mountains and rivers. You can’t compare such a different geographical environment to China.”

Another disputed:

“Japan also has crops and trees. According to your logic, they must plant them in sand.”

Are these photos real or are they merely Photoshopped?

In the hope of saving his badly burned left hand, Frank Reyes — an 87-year-old retired cattle ranch worker and school bus driver who lives in Missouri City, Texas — agreed to have it sewn into a pocket of tissue in his abdomen. Reyes' family, of course, thought the procedure was something out of a sci-fi movie, but they agreed to it as well. After all, they had said they were willing to try "anything" to save his hand.

Houston Methodist Hospital plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Echo was responsible for the mind-boggling operation.

Reyes was home alone when figured in an accident last June. He was changing a tire on a trailer when the jack slipped and pinned his hand against a fender. Reports say that it was more than 100 degrees that afternoon and the metal on the fender became like an iron burning Reyes' hand. It took half an hour before Reyes was rescued.
