Feeling Blue

It's Thursday, so it's time for my weekly random question...

I'm kinda blank. I'm trying to think up something to ask, and all I can come up with is, "What if there was no blue?" Wait...

What if we could see in the ultraviolet or infrared spectrum? Would it be a help or a hindrance?

  1. Blue is my favourite colour so I can't imagine a world without blue. Well, insects and other animal species can see ultraviolet light etc... so I believe it may help...either that or we may feel we took some amazing drug and are tripping out:)

  2. (I thought I left a comment already but I don't think it went through...that's been happening to me a lot lately).

    If we were born with our eyes that way, I bet we wouldn't notice. But if it, for some weird reason, happened all at once, we'd have a lot of sensory overload.

  3. I'm thinking it would be a help because it is what we would have known, right? Not something new to get used to?

  4. When I was a kid I always wondered if everyone always saw colours the same way. For example is my blue your green? As long as we could see pink I'd be fine :)

  5. What if we were ALL born seeing only black and white? Would we know the difference? I'm guessing not.

    1. They had no idea there was such a thing as color blindness until this one man could not be taught how to distinguish a ripe red apple from a non-ripe green one.

  6. I love blue so I'm glad it's here! It might be interesting to have a character who could see that way (infrared), a genetic defect, perhaps. I wonder if it would give him an advantage or a disadvantage...?

  7. I'm not a big blue fan per se, but I love green, and it's tough to get to green without blue. And I love the ocean and the ocean is sometimes blue. Then there's the sky… Okay, I would miss blue, although as others have said, one can't miss what one doesn't know. I'm not sure about ultraviolet but if I could only see in the infrared spectrum, I'd need a lot of headache medication.

  8. I would definitely miss blue...and my son would have only these hideous bright red basketball shorts that he keeps digging out of the bottom of his drawer where I hide them.

    1. Don't hide them. Get rid of them. That's the only way.
