    I will say that being color blind makes it hard to work with electronics in sewing machines. I am just glad that most companies have now started using different colored plugs or sized plugs that can only go in one slot.

    I never installed an alarm system in my old Cougar because I couldn't tell the difference between the red and pink wires. Heck, there were 4 that all looked the same to me.

    I will try and get some images up of other plants. I am going to take a photo of the thread rack we have at work to run through that filter to show my coworkers. It took me awhile to explain that the image that looked odd the them was how I saw both images. All I got back was that no, this is a different image, the colors are off and this should be this, and this should be this, etc.

    One thing that does bug me is that when a wrong color is chosen, someone else has to correct the color and say "no, that is not brown, its green". Well, I warned you that I was colorblind so what I see may not be what you see. So... you pick it out. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

Can you read those without the red window? I had a couple friends when I was a kid who could see those messages just as if they were written on plain paper. Kind of interesting the unique things in people. Nice Sar too.. wish mine would look that good no matter what color people see them lol.

    I'm not colorblind... actually I can see more colors then average, and I can read those things easy. I think it might be more of a pattern reading thing than a color level.

    (My extra color vision is a little in each direction, I found out in chem class from recording color bars for diff chemicals. I could see one bar extra in each direction for this one compound and teacher said she only gets those once every year or two, but they actually ARE there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] is cool yah?)

    As to being color blind. I don't think they miss out on much because to miss something you must know what it is. Humans are colorblind in conparison to a lot of other animals and we don't usually even give that a thought. Yup, their are animals that can see UV shade and those that can see temperatures so... do we miss these? I don't.

The left part of the lid is reddish, in the second one its green and lighter. Obviously I can tell the difference between a Red tee shirt and a green one. Are there different levels of colorblindness?

    I usta think purple was a really dark blue...and on Paint, I could barely tel the diff between 2 of the colors until I painbucketed half and half(prolly around 7).
    MANY MANY levels of colorblindness. Infact, most "colorblind" people just have reduced color vision, not compleat lack of red-green and/or blue-yellow. If you can see the red, you probubly are green confution while Nick is oviously a red confution. Telling the two appart is hard, but their are differences... I know an awfull lot of colorblind people and they are all over the map on what they can see. I even know one guy who is 100% colorblind.

Boys get it from their moms, but dont pass it to their sons. I *think* that dads can give it to their daughters who in turn can pass it to their sons. Been a while since Ive read anythng about that but I am pretty sure thats how it goes.

    Copper what state do you drive in where the lights are in different orders? Every state Ive ever driven in its always red, yellow, green top-bottom...

    Females must have 2 colorblind X's to be colorblind, 1 to carry.
    Males only have 1 X so it's defulted to colorblind if that is what they got. AKA, colorblindness comes from Mom in males and both mom and dad in females.

    I think that Copper meant what order each side of the intersection gets to go in. Like North and South are green, East and West are red. I may be wrong. Also, in Europe, the problem is solved because the lights turn yellow after red as well as before, in order to indicate that green is coming up. Supposedly this is partly because of the higher number of stick-shifts which Americans are generally too lazy to drive. The other more logical theory is that this was adapted from racing starts which goes back to dropping the clutch etc. Just a little tidbit from the other side of the Atlantic.

    I had a student who's colour blind. He didn't mention it until we were trying to pick some coloured paper for decoration.

    He would see lilac as green and purple as fushia...so our clock in the classroom was always green and bright pink to him! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The funny part was when I asked him what colour my pants were that day..."Umm, green?", he said. I was wearing lilac! Considering that I have quite a few lilac and purple coloured tops, I must be looking like a clown to him all the time... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
