Default The Color Wars

Well, I finally found scientific proof of which color is fastest, at http://www.sencore.com



As you can see by the diagram above, red is the slowest color (385 tHz). Black, being the lack of color, would be even slower. White, being an equal distribution of all colors would be somewhere in the median range.

So, as my car is Blue, that puts me right up near the top. Unfortunately, my research also shows that I must bow to Jason and the Purple Pearl as the fastest color on the chart.

Maybe now, we can consider this settled....

The person that made that chart was probably color blind.

Here'* how it works.......What'* the shortest path? Yellow and Green. The shortest path is the quickest. My 'official' color according to GM is "Dark Yellow Green". Therefore, I am the fastest.
