    How many of you are color blind?

    There may be a solution! Gene therapy!!

    They were able to get adult squirrel monkeys to develop full color vision just by injecting the gene for L-opsin into the monkeys' eyes. Amazing, what science can do.

    Yup, and soon their eyes will mutate at a rapid rate and then we'll have squirrel monkeys with lazer eyes and perfect vision trying to enslave the world!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I'm not, but one of my brothers is. He's so color blind, he couldn't even play "Red Light-Green Light", as a kid.

    Yeah I'm not creeped out in the slightest bit, mildy aroused maybe, but not creeped out.

    I wouldn't mind tetrachromatic vision myself, especially being able to see in the IR or UV spectrum.

    I'm color blind. Tried to join the military when I was 18. Failed their color blindness test, the one where you're supposed to pick the hidden image. Primary colors are no problem, however.
    I'm also night blind and going blind due to glaucoma.

    Can't wait for someone to come out with something like Geordi LaForge had on Star Trek TNG.

    Thanks for posting this. I think I will stay color-blind, though. It is an excellent unorthodox way of striking up conversations with females;

    "Excuse me, I am extremely color-blind, does this tie match this shirt?"

    So, the gene actually makes adults grow new cones in their eyes. Astounding.

    When I was 18, I had a physical before college, and I was given the dots-in-a-book test. I failed at page 2, lol. I had no idea before then.

It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    That circle in post #22, is actually a "smiley", and it says, "have a nice day" on it. Honest.
