What is with the people saying black is not a color? Black is all the colors mixed together, I think that`s a color. White isn`t a color though, that`s kind of the abscence of color. But if you`re talking about light, white is all the colors and black is abscence.

Weird, huh?

I tried for Pokemon towns but I only remembered at the end, so I only got viridian and saffron. Some of those are ridiculous like cerulean AND cerulean blue, Alice blue, etc.

But I missed white. Happy MLK day.

And, it just occurred to me, if you`re going to put `school bus yellow` as one of your colour, why wasn`t `sun yellow` one, or `daffodil yellow`? Complete bollocks.

come on! this is BS. You can add a prefix to a colour and make it another colour like:

light, plale, bright, natural, neon, florescent, dark, etc.

Total BS!

you might get complications like: bright black or neon brown or even dark white, but you get the idea.

I should have guessed where these colours were from as soon as they said "255"...
