Subjectivism

It's funny how two people looking at the same colour will never see that particular colour exactly the same.

Two peeps looking at a blue couch for example, due to the differences in the processing of signals by our individual brains, will see the same blue couch in an ever so slightly different shade.

Unless your colour blind.  Then it'll be brown or something. 

But we're all in sync, 'cuz we're taught what colour is what from a young age. 


.....Rainbows are lovely.....

  2. It's like..one person will look at you and think, yeah, she's east Asian. But then another might think..no, she's African, surely. Unlikely, but you know, might happen one day.

    Rainbows are the shiznik. I haven't said that since I was 15. I won't be saying it again.

    1. Mate, you have an amazing eye!! I did not even notice that! This is an edited pic so I had to look back at the original to make sure it was a double rainbow and not a result of brightening/editing. Double rainbow correctly identified *high five*
