to see red mist- a condition certain people get into- usually caused by mental conditions but can be brought on by extreme stress/anger- when one is extremely angry there is stress put on facial muscles. the mark for one losing control of themselves and raging, destroying things/people in their vicinity, is when internal blood vessels in or near the eyes start leaking. the blood can sometimes spill into the inside of the eye, causing the person to see everything through a "red mist", hence the name. at this point, however, the person is so angry that they completely lose control and essentially go insane for a time. the condition naturally causes the person's eyes to turn red, which makes the experience for a bystander go from quite frightening to positively terrifying.

a phenomenon that occurs in the period following somebodys anger begiining to subside. A persons anger leads to a condition known as 'the blood being up'. At a later point, when the blood settles again, it descends in a fine red mist. the quantity of blood will depend on the number of people whose blood was up. this phenomenon is often confused with the aurora borealis. i.e. on a tuesday night after a championship match the previous sunday, it is most common.
