Red and green, also in Quebec.

An example of complementary colours I took in a market in Quebec.

Snipped for future reference and possible ongoing discussion :

I like how the purple came through in the second one.

Thanks. That's a very effective trick to juxtapose complementary colours. It's what makes the red tractor stand out so well against the green grass in your second photo (red and green are opposites on the colour wheel). Sorry, I always tend to over-analyze things.

I'll have to keep the color wheel in mind. I had never thought about colors in that way. I might print one out and slap it on the toolbox, so it sinks in over time.

It's very useful. It comes naturally to me from my painting days. An easy way to get the complementary of any colour is to stare at it for 60 seconds, then quickly look at a sheet of white paper. The after-image you see will be the complementary colour on the wheel. Example: you will see an orange after-image after staring at a blue object. So, to make blue pop, paint an orange area next to it.

John Gray has been peddling his atheism spiel for well over a decade (dining out on his sneering depiction of the so-called New Atheists, comparing them unfavorably to other atheists, quasi atheists or religious people that he prefers) and the description of his new book makes it sound like he's still covering basically the same ground. The book by Moore and Kramnick sounds more interesting.

Never heard of Gray before, and I'll admit when I saw the name I first thought of that men/Mars, women/Venus guy.  I have to assume this is not him.

At that point, paint your eyelids to look like your eyeballs and prop your head on your hand. Snooze attentively.

And creep people out? :lol:

I know what needs to be done.

I'm halfway through a four-hour wait in a building that doesn't seem to have one comfortable chair. I would go into the library but one gets angry glares and frowns if one utters a word.  ::)

Are you with someone or do you talk to yourself?

With someone. If I was alone I have no problem keeping my mouth shut, heheh. :grin:

I have got to be the biggest screw up on two continents. It looks like I'm buying the water heater I was trying to fix. Probably destroyed the damn thing. Fuck.
