Thanks in advance!

I'm also colourblind (multi, in fact) and thought this was a neat idea if I needed colour help

That's the trouble with kids today. Everything's black and white.

Hmf. Colourblindness has nothing to do with seeing things black and white

My dad's colourblind. Every time he goes out shopping one of us has to go with him or he will end up asking the shop assistant. He gets his greens and reds muddled up, and things like browns. Which is why I will be going with my mom to get the paint for when I redecorate my room. And why only we redecorate. He was really pleased when we painted the featurewall of his and my mom's room "green", and she was pleased because she wanted red

A good friend of mine can't tell the difference between orange and green (or red for that matter). At school he would get told off for colouring faces in orange instead of pink. And if you threw an orange on a grass lawn he wouldn't be able to find the orange.

Incidentally, the sky is also orange according to him.

Don't take this the wrong way, Dragon or JBStone....but I feel soooooooo sorry for colorblind people. It makes me think its like walking around with those horrible 3D goggles on full time or something. I imagine you're used to it. But still. Poor you!

It's not normally a problem - only on the rare occasions I need to be able to tell what colour something is. It pretty effectively stops me from having a career as an electrician and I tend to avoid colouring things in, but other than that I'm fine

Yeah I know. But you only think you're fine...because you don't know what the world is supposed to look like. That's the worst part! It's like you're being tricked!
