1. People talking about meat looking grey, isn't it always grey when it's cooked? actually isn't it always grey? no, people call it "red meat" so it must usually be red.

2. person finds out you're color blind, points at thing in room, "what color is that?"

and yet when they see someone wearing glasses they somehow don't feel like taking them off, pointing to a faraway object and asking them to identify it.

why will nobody accept "I don't know" as an answer?

3. Road trip with someone who was colorblind. They point at a bus and go, "Wow, now there's a YELLOW schoolbus, especially if I can see it!"

Except it was one of those baby blue prison buses. We felt so bad for him, he was so close!

It's funny, yellow is the only colour I can see properly and so it's like a blaring foghorn, can't miss it and can't stand it.

it also overwhelms anything else, sometimes I am told what is apparently yellow is actually sth called "lime green" though limes are a much darker shade.

Is the thread title meant to say “colour blind / color blind”

I've had people think I'm faking it my whole life. Like, I've picked up something in a slightly "off" shade and had people assume that I'm playing some kind of twisted, weird long game. I don't understand why it would make more sense to believe I'm faking it than I just struggle to differentiate similar colours and textures.

people are just mystified by the idea that you can look at the same thing and see it differently

You have to take a colour vision test to be able to legally drive in Bulgaria and Cbina, this was a good excuse not to learn to drive while I was in China.
