This might be really dull, I'm not sure.  I find it useful, and... well, at least a little bit interesting.

 

I'm colour blind, and (like most people who are) I've spent most of my life trying to explain to interested people what it's like, without ever really being able to do so.  Well, I've finally found a site which shows people what it's like.

 

Original pictures first, and then "as seen by colour blinders" below:

These pictures look exactly the same to me (other than the background to the classic spotty colourblindness test - the actual spotty test looks the same in both pictures).  So, if you're lucky enough to have normal colour vision, the bottom pictures are how we unfortunate colour blind people look at the world.

 

People tell me that the differences between the pictures (particularly the hats one) are really, really pronounced and obvious.  Might explain why I always find myself driving through an unfamiliar town or city at night time, and failing to spot approaching traffic lights.  When all you can see is a light (because it's dark, and you can't see the two turned off lamps in the enclosure), it's so easy to mistake a traffic signal for a regular street light.  It'll be the death of me, or someone else.  Why they can't use blue in traffic signals, or flashing lights, or something, I'll never know.

 

Anyway.  Any colour-blindies here who see those sets of pictures as identical, like I do?  Keep a copy of them on your hard drive and use them next time somebody asks you what it's like :)

 

I'm red-green colour blind, at first glance the picture look identical, but if i look reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally hard i can see slight differences. Is the shade of green n the South america's different?

I'm red-green too and they look the same to me. Maybe the second South America is a slightly darker green, and the top Ishihara (dot test) looks a bit darker than the one below it.

 

There is more than one type of colour blindness so I don't see how this can simulate it.

Maybe it's the Teesside fumes that do it to us?

BUMP!

 

Anyone knocking around here colour blind now? Was at the jobs fair at SJP the other week and it can affect my chances with a lot of jobs I was looking in to :(

 

Bad luck, I'm pretty much sufferring the same problem at the moment except it is my hearing rather than my eyesight that is holding me back.

 

I had to pretty much reassess my future career plans, and may have to go back to university to find employment in the kind of job I am looking at.

God isn't NSG such a tiresome cock?

 

:lol:

 

What jobs are you looking into NSG?

 

Basically ruled out anything to do with flying, although i'm not really sure how much I was in to that. Or anything in the Police force.

 

Looks like i'll be applying to the "Big Four" this time next year and stuck with bloody finance.

NSG will no longer be able to be a Bomb Disposal Expert/Big Daddy off BioShock.

I'm just speaking from past frustrations of people telling a (perfectly good) joke, without you noticing.

 

Personally I didn't see what was funny about him mocking an official disability. I'd like to see him make the joke to my face.
