Out of the Blue

Here's a little follow-up on discussions here of color vision deficiency since I brought up the fact that I am a "sufferer" myself. A Cure for Colorblindness? (by way of Ant and Slashdot) discusses a breakthrough that involves corrective lenses. This red/green enhancement comes at the expense of yellow/blue perception, so it's not without its issues (apparently it renders yellow traffic lights invisible), but it's an interesting bit of progress in an area where I never expected any. If nothing practical comes of this, I'd still be interested in experiencing this effect to see how the other half (or other 90%, technically) lives.

hey creston what other types of peanut butter are there? and what are they like compared to the americafuckyeah stuff? i do my best to be a citizen of the world, but some of the more obscure stuff always slips through the cracks of my brain.

I was talking about the differences between countries. Peanut Butter in the US typically has a lot more sugar (at least some brands do), though the Peter Pan PB that my wife and I eat apparently only has 2g per tsp. (compared to Nutella, which has 21g per tsp. )

The Dutch PB I grew up with had no sugar, so personally, as a sweet tooth, I love the US version far more than I do the Dutch one. And I always got an Austrian or Swiss type of PB from a deli, but I can't remember what it was called... It also had quite a bit of sugar in it.

Obviously people's tastes will vary. Some people may hate the sugary stuff and would likely much prefer the Dutch no-sugar-PB.

But in any case, Nutella is better than all of them!
