haha, imagine someone with a shirt like that... "aaah, where did all those bees come from!?"  :lol:

I wonder if you could make target advertising towards colorblind and non-colorblind by using some tricks with letters in certain colors :D

Would that message actually not show up for completely color blind people?

Completely colourblind would mean no colour vision at all, which is super rare. But yeah, red/green deficient people would not see the SECRETLY LOATHE.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Ya, I can see it fine too. It may effect someone with more severe cases of red/green colorblindness, but it isn't designed in a way that will effect the most common form of colorblindness(which most of us seem to have):

Quote
Deuteranomaly (most commonó6% of males, 0.4% of females):[24] These individuals have a mutated form of the medium-wavelength (green) pigment. The medium-wavelength pigment is shifted towards the red end of the spectrum resulting in a reduction in sensitivity to the green area of the spectrum. Unlike protanomaly the intensity of colors is unchanged. This is the most common form of color blindness, making up about 6% of the male population. The deuteranomalous person is considered "green weak". For example, in the evening, dark green cars appear to be black to Deuteranomalous people. Similar to the protanomates, deuteranomates are poor at discriminating small differences in hues in the red, orange, yellow, green region of the spectrum. They make errors in the naming of hues in this region because the hues appear somewhat shifted towards red. One very important difference between deuteranomalous individuals and protanomalous individuals is deuteranomalous individuals do not have the loss of "brightness" problem.

Interesting. Did not know about the brightness thing.

Yeah that explains it perfectly. If a patch of color is small and low in saturation, sometimes I can't distinguish well between something being green or orange as they can have similar local values.
