Just asking questions over at Rebuttals from Martin Bashir.

Test your colour vision.

That's a good example of the nature of colour blindness. I'm red-green colour-blind, but I still get scores like 30-33, which is apparently better than 97.9% of the population, but I find the greens and browns a lot harder than other colours, if there wasn't any greens or browns I'd probably do much better.

Free Hayek.

Free Palestine!!!!!

With any purchase of Jordan or Syria!

Oh hullo, y'all, have you met David, my straight man? . . . !

Hal

Customer feedback of note.

. . . . Someone's got a problem with a self service poultry offering??

Arrive refreshed with this in-flight posture apparatus.

. . . that is, if the passenger in front of you behaves . . . .

The Samsung safety truck. It seems obvious now.

Great idea (and very good marketing).

After 'And then you notice the pigtails' I'm honestly afraid to click on 'Eruption'.

Presumably, the artist wanted to make sure young readers understood that the person giving birth was female, hence the pigtails. I suspect they hadn’t considered how it might look to grown-ups.

The Samsung safety truck.

They had me at 'night vision mode'. :-)

Bird bath.

The little girl enjoying the aerobatics is adorable. Her giggling is infectious!

After three goes I managed 35 on the colour test. Very strange how, towards the end you are choosing squares without really seeing the difference but more like simply feeling it. Anyone else have that?

"The People's Assembly Against Austerity, organisers of tomorrow's march hoping to bring London to a standstill, have failed to balance their books. The last time they revealed their accounts, PAAA were spending £2020 each month to keep the lights on despite only having a regular monthly income of £1545."

The People’s Assembly Against Austerity… have failed to balance their books.

Heh.

Hal

The People’s Assembly Against Austerity… have failed to balance their books.

Meh.

After all, they're against austerity . . . therefore, of course they're going to be racking up bills, anything else would be hypocrisy . . . . !

Bird bath.

Is it any wonder I want tail feathers?

I've always preferred the People's Anti-Austerity Assemebly. The People's Assemby Against Austerity are nothing but splitters.

David

Don’t worry, dicentra. You’re among friends. This is a safe space. We won’t judge you.

FREE TIBET! With the purchase of Tibet of equal or greater value.

A friend of mine in Tusla, Okla., when I was about eleven years old. I’d be interested to hear from him. There are so many pseudos around taking his name in vain.

You probably should. :-)

Test your colour vision

Is splendid fun, but I can't get it to tell me anything other than "You're a hawk, you could see a wriggling worm in a bowl of maggots two miles away in the forest" even when I deliberately make mistakes.

Soon they'll be telling me I was the "last winner". I think they need to be tougher on us

The colour vision test remembers your highest score, displayed with your rank on the left. Your last score is displayed next to that, with your number of errors. I don't think the errors actually affect your rank - it's your final score that counts (and there's at least one extra rank above hawk).
