The blurb will explain it.

I didn't see much colour at all, just the black/white/grey & a teeny bit of brown.

Black,white,brown and a bluish grey.

Does anyone remember the OXO adverts that used that effect to produce colour on black and white TV back in the late fifties?

holding my left eye closed, I "saw" a halo of yellow to green around the bullseye

holding my right eye closed The bullseye went a faint blue........

in a stare,both eyes open, various triangular patterns
and black/white blocks moving vertically...........
possibly varying dependant on B/B speed etc.....

black n white stripes........

reminds me of the Zebra that had died and went to "Heaven"

and at the gate asked the gatekeeper a question........"Ive always wondered if I was black with white stripes or white, with black?"

the gate keeper said, Im sure I don't know but hang on a minute I'll ask HIM upstairs.

a while later he came back with the message " HE says,you are what you are!!"

I don't understand says Zebra, what does THAT mean?

well he says you were white with black stripes.........

if it was the other way round he would have said " Yo' is what yo' is!"

I see Red stripes, strange, might be because I have a degree of colour blindness.

Any colour I can see is a green line at the bottom.


LadyScozz Report 18 Jun 2014 00:48
