Well, I do, too -- on M&M Candies during Easter... otherwise... :-P

I have one word for ya: Photophobia. I'm one of the posterchildren for the
light-grey/dark-grey/black color schemes (going so far to hacking the
registry in windows to get to some of the colors you can't normally change
- way back in Win3.1) because my eyes are so light-sensitive that it's the
only way that I can stand to do my job...

[[ and it's still too bright for my liking... a *lot* of winders proggies
don't like dark backgrounds with light text... :-( <sniff> ]]

Awesome!!! I love it! ;-)

I have a friend kinda light that - can only see very *bright* primaries -
otherwise, the world is grey to him... He always had to go clothes shopping
with a friend to 'get advice' about colors & whatnot...

That's why he liked the army... he always knew the clothes would match... ;-)
