What the....what?

That is my sink.  It was business as usual today as I was cleaning it with some softscrub with bleach.  I love the softscrub and have been using it on the sink since we moved into this house.  Well, as I was scrubbing I noticed a funny orange spot appearing.  Weird.  It was small, but very annoying, so I thought to myself: "fill up the sink with hot water and pour straight bleach on it."  So, I did just that.  That's how I ended up with the orangish-brown death stain.  What the heck is that?  How could bleach cause that?

Anyway, I tried everything to get it off (lemon juice, etc.) and it finally came down to some good old fashioned vinegar to do the trick.  Vinegar has long been my favorite cleaning product, but this just sealed the deal.  FOREVER. 

Seriously though, why did this happen in the first place?  What was that?  Please tell me it is not the first sign that my sink is about to spontaneously disintegrate or something.  Oh, and my sink is now sterile enough to operate in.  Thank you very much.
