The idea that yellow and blue make green still seems like crazy unexplainable magic to me.
ffhound_image_0.png
I very much remember learning about the color wheel and how colors blend as such when I was in kindergarten. Seeing watercolors do precisely that was mind-blowing for a five-year-old. - Akiva
Meanwhile, the fact presented by COSMOS that leaves are green simply because of what color they DON'T absorb? Get out, science. GET OUT. - Akiva
The part that really breaks my mind is how we see yellow because of our red and green photoreceptors. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Subtractive vs additive color physics is what blows the cork right off my brain. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Blue and red making purple? Oh sure, makes sense. Red and yellow produce orange? Fine fine. But green is crazy to me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Looking at the rainbow, green and orange made sense to me but purple did not. - Amit Patel
It's like a shady yellow. - Meg VMeg
CMYK vs RGB still confuses me. Like, you mix all the colors you get black vs you mix all the colors you get white. My mind confuses the two... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Was about to post what Zulema just said. That's the one that's *really* crazy. - Spidra Webster
Was about to post what... wait, I already did. - Micah
Out of curiosity, what about the combination of blue and yellow creating green seems like magic? Zulema: what's even crazier, to me at least, is that 0% C 0% M 0% Y 100% K isn't the blackest CMYK gets. There's a blacker black, a rich black, that's 75% C 68% M 67% Y and 90% K. - Mark Trapp
You know what's really crazy? There are yellow stars, there are blue stars, there are red and white and orange stars, but there aren't any green stars. WTF?!?! - Victor Ganata
Hey, that makes sense to me. All those colors appear in flame according to heat. Green doesn't appear unless you toss in an element with the right emission spectrum. - Spidra Webster
BLELLOW! - Eivind
Mixing paints is technically CMYK but it "feels" like RGB. Computer screens and the world we see is RGB (light) but mixing paints and printing stuff is CMYK but it has to emulate RGB. I think I got that right... :-& - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
CMYK is subtractive (adding pigments changes which wavelengths get absorbed or reflected) while RGB is additive (you're directly changing which wavelengths get transmitted). But, yeah, ultimately, we have RGB receptors in our retinae. - Victor Ganata
Mark T.: It seems like magic to me because it seems unpredictable and illogical and emergent, much like mixing bleach and ammonia produces a deadly gas. Yeah, this is all a bit "f'in' magnets, how do they work?" - Stephen Mack
Ahhh, I see. To me, it seems logical that green is created from yellow and blue: green, to me, just looks like a yellowish blue or a bluish yellow. But maybe that's a construct of education, forced upon me by the man, man. My head hurts now. - Mark Trapp
I'm even more confused now because I know you have to convert images to CMYK when you print them. I completely forgot to ask my photography teacher about that when we printing our "RGB" photos in class from Lightroom. The last job I had there it was always a big deal when printing designs from the printer to the ink used to the paper you were printing on and which colors will print more accurately. Like JEEZ, it's just a print of a design but OH NO, dumb girl, it's kind of a big deal. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
And that, not only can you use the colours to find what elements teh stars are made of, but you can use the colours to determine how fast they are moving away from you via red shifting! #mindblown - Ken Morley
Fun fact: you can get the colors in CMY from RGB and you can get the colors in RGB from CMY... http://stefanabrams.com/StefanA... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

The bank just told me the maximum mortgage they'd be willing to give me. Let's just take a moment to laugh uproariously about the prospect of me taking on that monthly payment.
yep, this is one way people get in trouble - maʀtha
this may be the point where I admit that my first mortgage was actually subprime. it all worked out, though. - RepoRat
Yeah, we've been through that process twice. Both times, hilarity ensued. - Catherine Pellegrino
Am I the only person who did this the other way around? Figured out how much I was willing to pay a month and then asked the bank for that? - laura x from iPhone
No, I did it that way, too. Then just for kicks he showed me the max. - lris
Yeah, Laura, that's totally the smart way to do it -- it's just, the bank gives you this number anyway, and it's outrageous. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, I had Catherine's experience. I knew what I could afford, and found the number the bank I could afford -- in the midst of the flipping crash, with 5% down -- hi-larious! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I swear my bank must have been talking to my real estate agent. She kept showing us places at the very edge of the bank's numbers, no matter what we said. (Got a new agent before actually buying.) - Rebecca Hedreen
Yup. Live within your means, no matter what the bank says. - Joe
I....really? That's still happening? No wonder banks around the rest of the world are afraid of lending anything to anyone...they can see it all happening again. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
Rebecca: We had an ongoing discussion with our long-time agent on the "You can afford more than this" topic, where "afford" would mean "the maximum mortgage a bank will lend you." We finally convinced her that we didn't *want* more than that, and also didn't like being over our heads. Took about 10 years & two houses. - Walt Crawford
Same with us. We had *practiced* having a mortgage of a specific amount for a period of one year. This allowed us to save some money to build our home. We knew what was most comfortable and safe. The bank tried to get us to double our loan. No. We paid the mortgage off in 16 years and 6 months. - Janet

I love Strictly Business from top to bottom. Erick Sermon recorded all the songs at 16ips instead of the faster studio standard 32ips on the 16 track reel to reel so that they could save some of the studio advance money for their pockets instead of new tape. - Eric - Back to the Grill
16? 32? i think you mean 15 and 30. also, LOADS of records were made at 15ips, saves tape and gives the low end a nice lift. - Big Joe Silence
Yep, you can fit two songs on a single reel when you record at half speed. I actually like the low fi sound it created. - Eric - Back to the Grill
Oh right, got my speeds mixed up. I'm thinking computers! x8 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Eric - Back to the Grill
15 and 30 are the speeds, tho. no worries. - Big Joe Silence
i really miss recording to tape, oxide shed and all. - Big Joe Silence
The thing about Hiphop and analog is how they were able to do the sampling they did without computers. So many limitations of technology that fed the style. - Eric - Back to the Grill
Ensoniq Mirage! Emu sampling drum machines! still using digital gear, but primative and they got SO MUCH out of it. and i think they played the samples manually most of the time, too. - Big Joe Silence
i forget who it was that just used a DDL and a turntable for the samples on their first album? total mastery! - Big Joe Silence
When the Furious Five would do the routine "Flash is on the beatbox!" Grandmaster Flash did actually do all the drum pattern manually. Schooly D's PSK was him rapping and manually working the drum machine at the same time. - Eric - Back to the Grill
