What's Your Favorite Color

Post by Jim_H »

I like yellow, and bright orange, and sometime red. Red is sometimes color. Gray, black, and boring dark colors make me think most everyone today is depressing or so afraid of standing out. It is like cars are in the matrix, or that other movie gray, Equilibrium. That, "cement" color is the one that makes me think they were cheap at the factory that day and just did a heavy primer coat before adding the finish, and then decided to sell the primer as a color.

No surprise here, but my favorite color is grey. Black is good too. If I have to choose something colorful, that’s teal.

Black. In the visible spectrum, black is the absorption of all colors.
This is almost as good as pick a number in Vegas Vacation!

@joebartels
So what you're saying is that black actually isn't a color. It's the absence of color. Or is that white? Or both?

Look up additive color and subtractive color. Because they are different. In additive color (what you see on a screen) when red, green, and blue light are combined, the result is white. It takes only those three colors to create all others.
In subtractive color (what is applied to a surface with ink, dyes, etc.) when cyan, yellow, and magenta are combined, the result is black. It takes only those three colors to create all others.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, this got broken off as Joe or someone else decided it was too off topic from the HAZ Ride thread. That, or they really like the idea of being able to make me look like a 6 year old, which I do, when posting independently about my favorite color in the forum.

Black objects absorb all wavelengths in the visible spectrum and reflect none. therefore they appear black. They may reflect in the IR or ultra violet spectrum though. It's a good thing we don't see in those spectrum or this thread would get really complicated.

Tie Dye with mainly a red base with brown, rust then royal blue mix. seriously thinking about painting the white jeep to look as if it's been paint balled. Would take it to the south side and pay, turn loose a bunch of taggers on it but I am afraid it would get all kinds of gang symbols and I would be ignorant of what they are. Someone actually did that, taped up the car windows, tires, bought a bunch of spray paint and let a bunch of people tag the vehicle. I thought it looked cool, but there goes the hiding in plain sight. How's this for thread degradation???

My favorite color is green, like in forests, the desert in the spring and money. Not necessarily in that order.

For hiking/trail running attire? Orange. I just realized that color might not stand out too well around where I hike/run. Whoops.

Really? What's value of this question? Someone deeply needs some sort of distraction. Most likely, looking for attention.

If I recall, this topic was started as a reply to another topic featuring a question of similar relevance in the grand scheme of things. I found it to be quite witty at the time. The forum can't consist entirely of weighty topics of ethics and include only replies that receive the seal of approval! :)
