Everyone's psychological makeup is immensely diverse when compared with every other person in this world. We have colour blinds and we have "normal" people. With colour blinds, you can be blind to only a certain colour or a colour group (like reds, pinks, etc), which some--although rare--are blind to the whole colour spectrum. When we see all colours, we are all perceived as normal. However, this is not the case. Although we all receive light wavelengths, we all receive them differently, as our eyes collect the light different, thus having a different reaction and perception. We all have differing sensitivity to the cone cells within our retinas that detect light at different rates. So a light red Skittle exposed to much sunlight on a summer day could appear that way to me, but it would appear much differently to you, but still have a red hue.

Very interesting, basically. I learned a lot about this in my psychology classes in the tenth grade. I find it rather fascinating how it all is broken down in text and makes total sense when we think about it. Even though I may have made no sense in my ramblings from above, I still think, no matter how different our eyes react to light sensitivities, we still see the close-enough colour. I am not going to see that Skittle as red while you see it as blue. Besides, if there was a blue Skittle, I'd be scared.

Also, I am wondering...
Doesn't a member, who relentlessly spams others about "checking out their channel" (sic!) also count as a spammer?
I am of half a mind to put this member in the next list.


Yes it does. And it's also pretentious AF.
Edit: it's fudge, by the way. I totally meant fudge.


I LOVE fudge! :D

And I know right? At least get the lingo right when you're spamming people! ;)

Oh dear, the other troll is starting to fling "Freedom of Speech" around, after I told her to stop spamming.

I really wish people would take the time to look up what Freedom of Speech actually means and not use it as an excuse to be little pests everywhere they go.

Apart from it not meaning what these people seem to think it does, isn't it cute how they always bring it up when they try to shut those up that call them out?
Like they're the only ones that are allowed to open their trap? :D

I joined colorlovers in June 2016. I have not caused any suicide drama. Why would i want to draw attention to myself? That seems selfish and I'm not that kind of person.

What you're saying here is irrelevant. I have a sneaking suspicion that your reason for posting in this thread is to draw attention to yourself, which seems unwise considering your activity on this site comes mighty close to seeming trollish, Erika/Hannah/whatever you name was last year when you caused all the suicide drama.

I know. I was just saying that she is friendly. I was not referencing it to being a good person or not.
