There are very few problems that cant be solved with explosives.
                             Explosives are a bang up job.

Hey Piro, that was a nice rocket and a very nice looking shell. Colour perception is as individual as we are, and therefore very subjective. Probably a bit on the blue side for me - but ddewees perceives it as more green??? - a case in point.

 

I think blue and green is an area of differing perceptions and so called 'colour blindness', especially when they are close.

Yes, it does have turquoise in it. A sensational display of fireworks. What I call turquoise (as in the gemstone colour) happens around 13:45, and goes for around 20secs.

 

It's also important to point out that the gemstone colour turquoise, has many variations between blue and green.

Cheers.

I just start the conversation - someone else has to question them.
