Who were led to water but were reluctant to drink.


Given yesterday's willful misunderstanding from many quarters, we'll dumb this Breakermatic diary right down.

So today's question is easier for all you simpletons to understand:

What is your favourite colour, and why?

I look forward to some illuminating discourse, during which I will probably be sworn at, have cabal groupthink ratings levelled against me and probably a random and completely offtopic comment thread develop.

The new, exciting Breakermatic rating policy is in force! 

You're either have a Breakermatic diary in front of you or you're behind!

Camouflage Green by codemonkey uk (1.00 / 1) #1 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:17:47 AM EST
Or maybe Blue Jeans Blue.

They are both good colours.

Update: Why by codemonkey uk (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:20:09 AM EST
I honestly don't know.  Colour preferences are mostly cultural, and it I doubt personal favorites are rational in any way.

Indeed by codemonkey uk (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:24:41 AM EST
It wasn't till the after-post re-read that it dawned on my that "they are both good colours" isn't actually a reason why, but just me repeating myself.  Sorry!

That did intrigue me by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:25:31 AM EST
Good colours for what?

Clothing by codemonkey uk (4.00 / 1) #8 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:26:25 AM EST

Can't argue with that.

Revised estimate by codemonkey uk (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 07:06:20 AM EST
Based on the random sample of Today.

Jumper: Blue
T-Shirt: Black
Trousers: Green
Socks: Blue
Boxers: Grey
Shoes: Brown
Coat: Blue

Totals (by item):
Blue: 3
Green: 1
Grey: 1
Black: 1
Brown: 1

That said, numbers can be deceptive, by visibility and coverage, the Blue and Green are at about 48% each, with the brown shoes getting the last 4%.

This is the kind of forensic analysis by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #15 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 07:42:11 AM EST
That should be fostered in Breakermatic diaries!

90% of my clothes are black.

which color is my favorite seems to vary from time to time. right now it appears to be burnt orange.

i don't know why, really.

I'm curious by yicky yacky (3.00 / 3) #3 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:20:46 AM EST

What do they pay you this hypothetical 100 pounds a day for, exactly?

You don't seem to do much work.

I thought I'd shown by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:24:40 AM EST
It was 74p?

And so it begins, ignore the topic of discussion and go straight for the author.

Where you lead, doubtless others will follow.

Probably, by yicky yacky (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:35:55 AM EST

but indubitably with less panache, flair and timing.

My favourite colour by brokkr (4.00 / 2) #10 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:32:09 AM EST
is the colour of MONEY. Because it pays the bills. And it's all sifted off you hard-working private sector types to boot.

I like my coffee the way I like my women: by ammoniacal (1.00 / 1) #12 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 06:52:32 AM EST
Black and foreign.

I also like my whiskey the way I like my women: 15 years old and mixed up with coke.

I like my drinks like I like my women: by atreides (4.00 / 1) #24 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 10:21:31 AM EST
I suspect the 71 horses by ambrosen (2.50 / 2) #13 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 07:00:55 AM EST
were actually led to Brawndo, hence their failure to drink.

Purple by anonimouse (4.00 / 1) #16 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 07:52:01 AM EST
why? because its not pink.

What's your favorite color, baby? by lm (4.00 / 1) #17 Fri Mar 05, 2010 at 08:05:32 AM EST
Living Color!

Is it Red?
That's what I said
Well Is it Gold?
Ha! You got me sold
Well Is it Green?
That's mighty mean
Well Is it Black?
Get back

For my next trick, I'm going to talk right down to earth in a language that everyone can easily understand.

The colour of fascists, righteous oppressors of the poor libertarians.

My favourite colour by priestess (4.00 / 1) #34 Mon Mar 08, 2010 at 08:02:48 AM EST
Is Red Stallion 3 because it speaks to me of excitement and danger and dominance. But it's also a bit girly pink, soft and easy to get on with.
