Lorem Ipsum Dolor sit Amet is basically Latin mumbo-jumbo. It is just filler text.

I have always wondered. Hours of conversations gone in circles trying to understand it - and here it is.

I have a color deficiency, I think it`s red and green that I have trouble with. I always fail those damn color tests where you can see the numbers behind the dots.

anyone know what "Lorum ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer
adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh
euismod tincidunt ut laroreet" means? probably some latin thing.

no point to that, but still pretty cool. 3/4.

I agree, the no-blue still looks kinda blue to me... and I dunno if that means my eyes are messed up or what... the blue that I see is kinda aqua across the bottom two rows.

Satanicbeast -- Yah know, I never asked him. I`ll have to now. We were on a walk one day and passed a flowering bush that had pretty lavender flowers on it and he told me, if he looked at it with his left eye, the color he saw was a really bright pink and how it really jumped out at him when he looked at it with both eyes. Sounded like a 3D effect to me. Sounds kind of cool. Glad this site was posted so I could kind of see what he sees.

My husband is Deuteranomaly (low green) in his left eye. Oddly, he says he thinks that helps him see better He has perfect 20/20 vision. He told me some colors look really vibrant, almost like neon to him. Kind of cool.

titter, people who are colour blind often cannot distinguish between two different colours. so say redand brown look the same to them, if someone said point to red, they might point to brown, and so on.

And he didn`t know he was colourblind until his art teacher in school pointed out he was using pink for his tree instead of brown.

My dad is colourblind, it`s quite funny `cause my mum was giving him directions when we were driving somewhere and she goes "follow the green car" and my dad was like "I might want to remind you that i`m COLOURBLIND!"

lol titter if you tell someone to point to the color "red" the people who can see that color will point to it. people who are color blind to red do not know what it looks like.

i think its weird cause you could be colour blind but wouldn`t know it because you`ve been brought up knowing that colour is red.. or what i see as red you could see as my blue... i dunno am i making sense?
