im a potato?

Before you judge others or claim
any absolute truth, consider that...
you can see less than t% of the electromagnetic
spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic
spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220
kilometres per second across the galaxy. 9084, of the
cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA
and are not "you". The atoms in your body are
99. 9999999999999999% empty space and none of
them are the ones you were born with, but they all
originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have
46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato.
The existence of the rainbow decends on the conical
photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones,
the rainbow does not exist. So you don' t just look at a
rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially
the you unmet
less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

so if we evolve to be able see more, would we be have to name a new color?

we'd have to name ALOT of new colors. You see, our eyes only have 3 cones/colors or whatever, everything we see is a mix of those. add another 1 or 2 and suddenly there's like a hundred new colors.

We have 3 color cones, from the simple computer color spectrum, red green blue we have 250 shades for every color.
250^3 = 15625000
If we add one additional color cone.
250^4 = 3906250000

3906250000 - 15625000
= 3890625000 new shades
the **** i do for education

so.. over 200 times the colors. Amazing. Imagine if we had the ability to see all the colors...

Well gee internet, thanks for making me feel bad about be color blind again.

So does everyone else. I thereby reserve the right to judge others on the grounds that they are equal to me in these parameters, and in fact, I am currently judging you right now. My judgements lead me to believe you are an idiot, and I shall now treat you as such.

Seriously, though, don't try to force others to stop judging people.

Oh look, it's another graduate (debatable) of the Google Search University.

Hey brother, did you get your email diploma yet? I'm still waiting on that .pdf

So how does a camera see a rainbow?
it's probably a pretty simple answer I'm just stupid

This has really taught me a lesson about gay pride.
User avatar #143 - sorryminesbigger (07/07/2013) [-]
for some retoast this was pretty dumb. the thing with the cells in the body might be due to cell count but definitely not mass; likewise, all the data that they describe is construed in a similar fashion or is delivered with very little other information and is out of context. im just saying that the person who originally wrote this had a ego issue and wanted to sound super-super smart and is clearly judging everyone who doesn't know these "facts." 1/10

have you ever tried to create a new color? it literally will blow your mind! and by the way, if we 'create' the rainbow, does that mean that there are other colors that we cannot see??? what if there is life outside of earth and one day they come here with all these weird colored ships, could we not see them? what color would they be to us? trippy man.
User avatar #139 to #138 - tigersstripes (07/07/2013) [-]
No, we would see it as a different colour, like people whoare colour blind see one as another.

okay, for everybody to understand. The quote does not say that we physically shoot rainbows out with our eyes and create the existence of rainbows. What its saying is that we create the image of rainbows in our brains. Without your eyes detecting only specific parts of the spectrum, the specific rainbow we see would not be there. Technically, every color is always there existing from the spectrum, but to take parts of it and create the image within our own brains is all this quote is saying.
