  1. they sometimes paint bridges blue to dissuade people from jumping off of them. blue is usually the color of police, etc. uniforms, so the blue reminds people of 'authority' and reminds them that they would be doing something 'wrong'.

  2. Interesting post and nice to see some vibrant color this morning :)

  3. This is a great post! I know a few facts about color. Red and purple used to be the same color to ancient Greeks. Some cultures, like those of Africa, have less than the 'standard' 6 colors. Some have as few as 3.
