Some notes on bikeshedding

Tuesday, 28 July 2009

  • Quite a few of you are not fully trichromatic1 so your opinion about what color the shed should be is indeed more useful than Helen Keller singing at the World Series but not exactly authoritative.
  • Differing colors have discernible effects on animal behavior.
  • If the adjacent house or office building is blue you don’t paint the fucking shed orange unless you’re intentionally trying to a dick.

1 Note that this argument is still as metaphorical as the original proposition. Some of my best friends and family are trichroma-challenged and I’ve publicly recanted my support of a sterilization program.
