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.

You can make it last longer by drinking as much alcohol as you possibly can to "toughen it up".

It did seem to show all the signs of Whiskey withdrawal when it was first plopped in there: I had to teach it that it will get Gin and Vodka from now on...

Edit: these Honest Trailers seem to have gone past their peak. It's a new voice isn't it? Doesn't seem to have the same attitude as before and the jokes are getting quite similar. I really enjoyed Skyfall although it really uses the Bond artistic license to the limit and the final set piece was crap as mentioned. (spoiler:) Fuel canisters explode and fly up and take down the bad guy in his helicopter, leaving him alive for a confrontation? That's as derivative and lazy as it comes.
