Are you sure it's green and not blueish with a twisted orangish pattern? If it's what I think it is It's the link to the neighborhood.

If it is green, you need to recalibrate your monitor. And that is not usualy easily done. I am a graphic designer, and had to spend about 600 on a monitor calibration device, yet the colours are spot on for the work I do.

I could be nuts, but the calibration device that came with my video card was a little sheet of plastic that produces pretty accurate colour - essentially what I see on the screen I get out of my printer is what I see on the web on other screens. Low tech as hell but free.

My book is blue http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Mine is green, too. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Then again, my Kadish is purple and I've been told that it is most definately blue...not purple. Go figure.http://img1.photobucket.com/albums/0903/Which2/smilies/smirk2.gif

My Kadish is purple as well. When I say blue and not green I usually think of green being more like the Kemo book. I guess the neighborhood book has a hint of green in it but it more of a blueish green that is stronger on the blue side. Sort of a teal color but leaning towards blue more than green. Umm Cyanish?

You shouldn't judge a book by its cover!!

Heh. I'm color blind, so have no clue what color it is. Yay!

Even people who aren't colorblind see color differently. Purple/blue/green seem individually and cross-culturally to be the most hotly contested.

What I see as cobalt blue, some of my friends see clearly as purple. Kadish looks purple to me, sort of lavender... [Periwinkle would be more bluish...]

The word 'midori' in Japanese means both blue and green. There are similar 'overlaps' in various other languages... no examples of which readily spring to my mind at this moment... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Coolblind people can still see how darkly or lightly colored something is I assume (like on black and white TV). Light red would probably look like light blue and dark green would probably look like dark brown.

My Dad and my eldest son are colorblind - I know, my fault.

My son's is of the red-green type. Red appears a specific shade of blue while green is perceived as grey. He dated a redhead for a while and says he still thinks of her as having blue hair.

However, everyone's perceptions of color are different. I can see two differing shades of the same color. All I have to do is to look through one eye or the other. My left eye sees more saturated hues while the right runs to pastels.

Who knew?

Welsh 'glas', I believe, also covers green, blue, and intermediate shades.

We should all keep in mind that color perception, and even more so naming colors, is something that varies. I'll be more careful now to say "the brown book with the really ornate spine, it has its own little space on the bookshelf" rather than "the brown book". Or post an image!

I thought it meant "delicious?" (j/k)

Someone told me once that people who are completely colorblind can distinguish colors anyway, and sometimes help video companies colorize old black & white TV, because they can look at the picture and tell what color everything was. (is this a load of bull?)

You know my boyfriend has a really weird colorblindness that I've never heard of. He once got something BRIGHT magenta/pink on a light gray sweatshirt, and when I asked him what on earth he had all over him he told me (and very honest/frankly) that he had no idea what I was talking about and there was nothing on his sweatshirt. Even when I pointed directly to the spill. O_O;;

I play Uru on 3 computers.

Each age is a different hue on each computer.

Kadish, however, is most definitely purple in my world...

Sorry, this conversation reminds me of a webcomic I read (http://www.ozyandmillie.net/2001/om20011022.html). Hehe.

LOL... Ellchan, 'delicious' is 'oishii'. ^_~ [Yes I know you were kidding. Was funny though. A friend of mine recently had 'otaku' and 'omake' mixed up... Teehee!]

Yes, even completely colorblind people can see tonal differences. They seem to be highly attuned to textures and shapes and overall composition. A handy trait in a photographer or artist. ^_____^

bablhous -- blue hair! That's so cool! I wish there was a way to tweak one's own cones [in the retina I mean! LOL! Oh dear, I didn't think how that would translate here until I typed it... ^_____________^] in order to see like that!
